Benjamin has completed the Horticulture & Business Management bachelor programme at HAS University of Applied Sciences and is currently working as a Young professional (trainee) Food & Agri at Rabobank.

Read his story below.

What does your current position look like?

As an intern I have the chance to change from department  every three months. I have gained experience as an account manager, as an analyst and as a project member.

What does your working day look like?

My working days never  look the same. Every week on Thursday we have a team  meeting where everyone provides an update on the past week. Sometimes practical cases are discussed and together we define which factors  are important to consider.

What do you like about your job?

The combination of practice and theory and working in different departments. I manage projects and have the chance to work on personal development.

What is your dream job? Does your current position fit?

This Young professional programme is a great career start  for me. I can learn a lot at Rabobank and I have the opportunity to get to know many different agricultural companies.

During my studies I  tried to do as many different things as possible, to find what I like. For me  variety in work is important and fun.

How do you look back on your studies?

I  have a positive feeling about the Horticulture and Business Management programme. The focus in the first and second year is on theory. This knowledge you can  use well in the third and fourth year. I have learned many skills that I can apply now in my job.
