I have always been passionate about gathering international experience through travelling and interacting with people from other countries. I developed my passion through activity in the international section of a student organization as well as through my exchange year in France. The program Manager Shadowing Across the Border caught my attention because it offers a chance to work closely with a manager and to do it abroad, in a country where I have not worked before. I have travelled, worked and studied mostly in Western Europe so far, therefore I got interested in a possibility to get to know the business culture of a neighbor country in the south of Poland. Another reason that motivated me to participate in the program is that it gives a chance to get insights into the activity of large international companies. Never before have I thought I could work for such a renowned company as Microsoft at such an early stage of my career and this is going to be the case thanks to this program.


 It was a great honour and pleasure for me to work at Microsoft. I was assigned to work on a project for the CSR department, which was supervised by the Legal and Corporate Affairs Manager. In order to complete my tasks I had to contact other departments and many other subsidiaries, which enabled me to get to know other people in the company. I was amazed by the friendly approach of Microsoft employees and their involvement in the cooperation with me. Moreover apart from the main project I was also given the opportunity to get to know other managers and receive tasks from them, which enabled me to get insights in the work of two other departments. My whole internship was a unique and absolutely wonderful experience through which I have learnt a lot and came to know amazing people. It all has an enormous value for me.
