ADIDAS Head Office Europe company visit

The visit to adidas was a very interesting experience. The students were warmly greeted by Anna Buron, Senior Product Lead Data Analitics & Marketing Decision Science and Cristina Carol, Director Head Office Europe eCom at the entrance. The visit began with an extensive presentation that covered a brief history of adidas and described the company's values and principles. Understanding adidas' core mission and purpose is essential to grasp the brand's essence.
The interactive and lively presentations included an explanation of the division of departments and organizational structure, followed by both presenters, Anna Buron and Cristina Carol, sharing their career journeys up to their current roles at adidas. Throughout the presentation, the presenters answered many of the students' questions, gaining insights into young minds' thinking and educating the students about the brand and the experience of working at such a corporation.
Additionally, the experiences of working and interning at adidas were discussed, which was particularly appealing to the students as they prepare for the next step in their careers: finding a job. Seeing an example from such a big brand was a privilege and a valuable opportunity. Two AMSIB alumni, Luana da Silva, just now full-time employees at adidas, and Zhaodi Ma, doing his Master´s internship, shared their experiences and described the onboarding process. Such insights are greatly appreciated, as applying to large corporations can seem intimidating for students. By gaining a better understanding of the process, students can equip themselves with the tools necessary to succeed in their own job search, potentially at adidas.
