It had long been Lena’s dream to be able to go behind the scenes of a large business and see how things work. The 21-year-old was given the opportunity to do just that during her internship at Lufthansa. As an intern in the cabin management team, she attended to the needs of 15 cabin crew managers who are responsible for managing roughly 3,600 junior and 800 senior cabin crew members. Lena was provided with a unique insight into the cabin crew application process – from short-listing suitable candidates and flight attendant selection day to probationary period support. Furthermore, she worked on a learning program for all flight attendants and helped prepare a presentation for ground crew training.

When summarising her internship, the bachelor’s student from Hamburg says: “I learned so much about working in human resources. It was amazing to see how so many flight attendants are managed and how all the departments interact to ensure thousands of flights worldwide take off and land without a hitch each day.” Lena would definitely consider Lufthansa as a future employer. “I really enjoyed the open working culture and I felt appreciated as an intern.”
