2 Days To Go (My Internship)

This tuesday my internship begins. Only two days to go. I'm so damn nervous.

To start this off better, I should tell you where I will have my internship. It's in one of the biggest consumer electronic shops in Europe.
I don't know what I will do there, but they'll propably teach me alot about selling products and all that jazz. After all my job that I will learn in the apprenticeship later is a "salesman". I don't know if this is the right word for it in english, but it's more than just standing around, selling products and being the cashier. It's keeping the store going, buying new products and advertising them. That's what I want to do.

While I was happy first, that I got the internship, problems arised. I don't have a driving license yet and neither a car of course and the store is nearly 20 kilometers away from my home. The train and bus connection suck, making me ride for over an hour, while getting there by car would be 20 minutes. I hope I don't get stranded somewhere in a foreign city on my first day, making a good impression already.

The internship is only for four days, so that's pretty cool. It's only for me to get an inside look in the store and the apprenticeship I want to do. I really hope my dreams don't get crushed and that this really is the job I want to do for the rest of my life. Otherwise, there is no plan B.

I'll try to keep you updated next week, of what I learned and stuff. The working time is from 9:45 am to 6:00 pm, so I hope I can find the time to write everything down.



  1. I haven't heard of mediamarkt, surprisingly. Good luck with your new job!

  3. They will assign you to some sort of products, you will have to learn about them and then just sell it to customers ;)

    1. That will propably be my part while getting teached. Since I'm interested so much in music, movies and games, I'll hopefully get assigned to that spot.
