What is Schibsted Connect?
Just thinking out loud; what if we had some kind of door that opens up the knowledge, the competence and the smart brains of a company that has 182 years of experience? What would you even do with that opportunity? Maybe you could invent something, optimize how we sell stuff or just climb onto the next big stage of your career?
Schibsted Connect is that door – your door to insight and new contacts. It is our buddy program where you will be connected with one of our Schibsted colleagues. The idea is that through monthly meetings, you will mutually share thoughts, ideas, and experiences. This exchange of information is the bridge that gives both sides of the river a better understanding of the world. We encourage you to ask us anything, and in return, we get to pick your ultra-modern brain.
The connection lasts officially from November to April, however many buddy pairs keep in touch also after the program ends. The application opens every fall.
Who are you?
You are a student with 1-2 years left of your education, bachelor or masters.
You are curious about Schibsted as an employer and most importantly and ready to connect
You are innovative, driven and have a desire to rethink things.
We are also inspired by brave people who like to take risks and who feel comfortable with the fact that sometimes you will fail on the road to success, but who still do not give up. Last but not least, Schibsted loves humble team players that see themselves as a part of something bigger instead of the center of it.
“Schibsted Connect is a great way to expand your network and challenge yourself”Hege Bellika Hansen, student at Kristiania University College
Hege gained more insight into the media industry through the Connect program, which was helpful before she started her summer internship as a journalist in VG. Through the program, she also realized that as a young person with a different perspective than the seasoned professionals, she had a lot to contribute to an established institution going through changes.
“I highly recommend the opportunity to get in contact with a large and forward-leaning company like this”Olle Wessel, Engineering Manager, Aftonbladet
Olle wanted to show students that Schibsted is a digital tech company, just like other famous digital companies. He also wanted to learn more about what motivates young professionals today.
“It is a great program! The mentor you get supports you and teaches you how to prepare yourself for when you go out into working life.”Viggo Toftgård, student at Uppsala University
Viggo was given a buddy that works with product management exactly what he wants to work with when he graduates. He learned a lot about how it is to work with product management at Schibsted. His buddy also mentored him regarding his career choices and what he should focus on in the future.
