Hello, my name is Julia. Today is my first day at St. ERHARD GmbH in Bamberg and I am going to do an internship in Public Relations for the next three months. I am originally also from Franconia but I am currently studying in Erfurt. There I am doing a Bachelor of Science in Communication Science and Management. Since I am not having lectures during the summer time I use this opportunity to gain more practical experience in this great start-up company.
In order to introduce myself I would like to tell you a bit about myself. I grew up in Frauendorf which is a small village near Bamberg with only 100 inhabitants. There is not really much in Frauendorf but there is a brewery which is not too special for a Franconian village. This might also be the reason why I like beer so much. After my A-levels I went to Australia for a work and travel year and then started studying in Erfurt. Sometimes in the evening I go to Orange Jungle which is a small beverage store in Erfurt to get a bottle of St. ERHARD. It is great that I can buy this beer in my new hometown. I really like Erfurt but I miss my home. This is one reason why I wanted to do an internship at St. ERHARD in Bamberg. Another reason is that I think working in a start-up company is a great experience. I am very excited to be here and I am really looking forward to the next three months.
Our New Team Member Yann from France
Hello everybody, I am Yann Ehrhard, the new summer intern here at St. ERHARD GmbH in the beautiful city of Bamberg. Born in Ivory Coast, raised in France, I’m now a student at McGill University, Desautels Faculty of Management in Montreal, Canada. There I’m doing a Bachelor of Commerce in International Management. The way I got to know St. ERHARD is quite funny, I was looking for an internship over the summer to gain more practical work experience, and apply what I’ve learned in classes in the real business world.
One day while going through my followers on my Twitter account, I realized that a company called St. ERHARD was following me, intrigued I decided to do more research about the company, and discover what they’re about. It was a really funny to see that they were a company who was producing beer, with my family name, and that looked young, innovative, and wanted to bring its unique touch of style and taste to the beer world. Moreover, I’m a beer lover, I grew up around it, live in a country where the beer culture is strong, from just hanging out with your friends to huge sports events, beer is not only a drink, it’s a way to enjoy life with a simple beverage, which interwoven different and complex aromas. That’s why I decided to send an email with my resume and a motivation letter, to know about their internships opportunities. No need to elaborate on the following, I think you can guess what happened next.
I’m working here thanks to the European Union program called Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs, which helps young people to discover what’s entrepreneurship by placing them in new companies. It’s a really good initiative that I recommend to anyone who wants to discover more about this field. I just started yesterday, and you can’t believe how much I’m excited to be here, helping St. ERHARD to grow and learning at the same time, it’s one of my first real job experience and will probably never forget it.
