Starting with being an intern, then writing my Bachelor’s Thesis, I am now happy to continue my journey with Roche. I came
to Switzerland around a year ago and back then had no intention to stay longer than a year – however, things changed…
My name is Julia – I guess my friends would describe me as an open-minded, motivated, always-smiling and chocolate-loving person. From growing up in Freiburg (in the beautiful Black Forest), I spent a year in Australia after finishing high school, started my studies in Pforzheim (next to Karlsruhe) and around a year ago I finally landed in Switzerland. The reason for moving was my successful application at Roche Diagnostics International in Rotkreuz for an internship position in Talent Marketing.
Right from the beginning I was challenged with multifaceted tasks, various responsibilities, and could participate in cross-functional projects. However, I never felt uncomfortable in any way. Instead, I felt like a true team member, who can make a contribution to achieving our common goals. After working for three months I embraced the opportunity to write my Bachelor’s Thesis in the area of diversity and inclusion. For me it was important to put my research into practice, and the strong support of my team helped me a lot throughout the whole process. Thanks to various collaborations with other Human Resources functions and business areas I had the chance to connect with lots of people – including my new manager. After passing the application process successfully, I am now more than happy to join his team and look forward to new and exciting challenges.
