Hi Daria! We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to speak with you about the VF Corporation EMEA Internship Program. Can you tell us more about how internships play a role in introducing new talent to VF Corporation?
Daria: I’d love to! Internships have been an incredible way for VF Corporation to introduce fresh talent to our teams at VF Corporation’s EMEA HQ. When a specific team needs extra support, we look to hire interns who can contribute their skills and enthusiasm. What’s even more remarkable is that almost 70% of our interns choose to continue their journey with VF Corporation after their internships end.
That’s impressive! Why does VF Corporation place such importance on hiring interns?
Daria: Internships are an amazing opportunity for young talents to join VF Corporation and grow alongside us. It’s not just about applying what you’ve learned; it’s about bringing value to our teams, sharing your unique perspectives, and helping us thrive as a company. Our aim is to provide interns with a holistic VF Corporation experience, from the moment they apply to their last day with us.
Can you tell us more about the recent evolution of the VF EMEA Internship Program?
Daria: We’ve evolved the program to focus on development, knowledge sharing, and helping young talents discover long-term careers within VF Corporation and its renowned brands like Vans, Timberland, The North Face, and more. We’re dedicated to helping interns integrate into our company and the wider professional world. Our goal is to create a structured and inclusive environment where everyone feels valued and truly part of our community.
It sounds like a fantastic program. How do you ensure that interns get the most out of their time?
Daria: We’re actively working with our HR teams and management staff to create a framework that maximizes the internship experience. Throughout the program, we facilitate constructive feedback sessions between managers and interns. This allows them to discuss their experiences and future aspirations. We strive to find the perfect alignment between their goals and VF Corporation’s business needs.
That’s excellent support for young talents. Can you share your personal approach to fostering a positive experience for them?
Daria: As the point of contact for interns, I believe it’s vital for them to have a familiar face to reach out to. I’m here to address any challenges, concerns, or questions they may have about the program, their managers, or life at VF Corporation. It’s also a way to help interns connect with their peers and quickly settle into our vibrant community.
Lastly, what are your expectations for the future of the VF Corporation EMEA Internship Program?
Daria: We’re genuinely excited about the future growth of our program in the coming months. We invite young talents who are passionate about the sporting goods and lifestyle industry to join us in our journey of growth.
