Choosing a professional internship that enriches both training and professional experience is essential. Despite the fact that at the time of search a million doubts may arise about what type of internship to choose, students are aware that this opportunity is a key door to the labour market.
Getting to know companies from the inside, being part of a work team, acquiring new values, learning in different departments... Internships contribute so much, whether curricular or extracurricular activities, so making a good choice is one of the most important decisions in the career of any university student.
Over the past year, life has changed a lot for students. For example, most classes are now online and even though this is a generation that is adapting quickly to this format, it is still not very easy. The pandemic has also not helped much in the workplace since the market is currently under collapse. However, this does not mean that it is not possible to find internships, only that it may require more effort.
This is why companies need to make it easier and promote actions so that those who will be our workers in the future can gain experience and put into practice all the knowledge acquired throughout their undergraduate and master's studies. For example, Endesa offers Flow Your Talent scholarships and so they can be found, we launch initiatives like Recruitment Day, a process that is ideal under the current circumstances.
What is the Endesa Recruitment Day?
Recruitment Day is an event that is part of the selection processes for attracting talent that have been developed within the company. It has a global scope, since it is held in each of the countries where Enel Group has a presence.
The main objective of this initiative is to attract the best young talent, so that, after their training, they can then join the company. For this to happen, students are given first-hand experience of an innovative selection process, where they will not only be able to show their full potential in an environment of confidence and spontaneity, but they will also have the opportunity to develop and learn new techniques and tools that give them with greater security when it comes to facing the challenge of starting their professional career.
In addition to giving students an opportunity to experience the world of work by working in a high-level company, another of the objectives pursued by Endesa with Recruitment Day is to promote gender diversity, by encouraging the presence of women with STEM profiles within the company. In 2021, a total of 10 Recruitment Days have been held that have had almost 100 participants from all the provinces in Spain and of these, 58% have been women. One example is Sandra Frías, who is currently training in the area of Solar Maintenance and Technical Services: "Some time ago I participated in a Recruitment Day, a selection process that was different, entertaining and enjoyable. That day thankfully opened the doors for me, so today I am lucky to be part of the Endesa team and learning in a sector that I am passionate about."
