INSIDE P&G - CRISTINA TURUTOAIA

Working as an intern for P&G is like having a full time job, with full time responsibilities and accountability. Its an excellent learning experience of what you call on the job training. You get to realize there are things that you can learn in training or at school, while nothing replaces the learning you get from actually working and delivering good results on a project. And when the outcome is being recognized for your work and rewarded with a full time job, even before ending the internship, you realize that you are part of a company where the knowledge, the individual reward and the on-going personal development are not just stories, but the nice reality. (Cristina Turutoaia, currently Assistant Brand Manager Bonux)

ABOUT P&G INTERNSHIP - ANA MARIA CIOVICA

IBDC stands for International Business Decision Challenge. This seminar has changed its name along the years but in the end it sums up to a wonderful experience no matter how it''s called. Being one of these seminar''s alumni I am proud to admit that so far, it has been one of the best experiences of my life. Taking aside the fact that it is run by P&G, which is one of the strongest multinationals in the world, it brings together young people with a diverse cultural background bringing the seminar to a continous discovery process. As far as I am concerned it was 2 head source of information. First the wonderful gate of P&G/IDS opens up and you learn all kind of new things regarding the company as well as IDS (the formerly known IT department). You understand better what a multinational stands for and how does a giant like this keep everything together and under control. On the other hand, you get to meet young people just like you who may have a different perspective on life than you have, given by different lifestyle and education. It''s that exchange of opinions that makes the seminar even more intriguing and what makes you want for it never to stop. On top of everything, what better way to do all these than while having fun? So, are you in for the ride? (Ana Maria Ciovica, former participant to IBDC, current intern in IDS department).
