Intensive training successfully completed
Nihal Kansu, Mars Logistics Human Resources Director, explained the online internship program that was completed recently: “Due to the pandemic, it was not possible for us to meet with our young friends last year. This year, we realized a first in our company and launched our online internship program. By receiving applications, we included eligible young friends in our program. 20 students took part in our online internship program, and students who received training on many topics related to logistics in an intense 40-day period, successfully completed their internship at the end of the program.
A student from the program joined the Mars Family
Stating that one of the intern students started working at Mars, Kansu said: “We care about the excitement of our young friends, their interest in our industry and their willingness to work in this field. Some of our proven friends who have done internships in our company so far started their business life on Mars. This is something we encounter almost every year. This year, a friend of ours, who was successful in his internship training, started to work in our Railway Operations department.”
“We attach great importance to education, we are working in this field”
