At Orkla, you will receive lots of support and feedback as well as being in good company with other summer interns. Our interns will be part of group projects which will open for discussion and teamwork. We will make sure you get feedback along the way, and will encourage you to discuss and work together. As an intern, you will get the opportunity of working on real projects with guidance from experienced people in the organization.
