We’re AB InBev, brewer of some of the world’s best beers, like Stella Artois, Corona and our American brand Budweiser. Read on to find out what our intern, Rika, discovered on her Internship with us.
On the path to great things
Rika is a third-year cooperative degree student at AB InBev. As part of her bachelor’s degree, she spent three summers with our teams in Belgium, Prague and Germany. Rika has an incredible passion for working with people and helping them develop their skills at the world’s largest brewery.
Different countries, same culture
Rika has taken on a number of positions during her internship: “In Prague I was working with Masterdata and the Robotics team. In Belgium I’ve been helping with the Leadership Academy and in Germany my focus was Logistics and Finance.” The roles have been varied, but one thing has been consistent: “No matter where I am, everyone is so open minded, approachable and eager to help.”
Leading by example
“My manager is so inspiring. She’s achieved so much and she pushes me into things I didn’t think I could do.” On her current placement in Leuven, Belgium, Rika says, “I’ve really come to learn that you can achieve anything you want here. You just have to focus, work hard and the results will come.”
After she graduates, Rika wants to find a role working with people. “That’s my passion. I want to work in different cultures, gain new experiences and lead global initiatives.” When asked where, exactly, Rika didn’t have to think for long. “I spent two years travelling in Latin America and thought it was such a beautiful place. AB InBev has offices in Brazil. I know it’s early days, but I’d love to work out there.”
