Not only my professional career as an HR intern, but also my personal development is seen as important at Ahold Delhaize.
My name is Anna Morsink and I am working as an HR intern at Ahold Delhaize. The past three years I have studied Psychology at Leiden University. Last fall semester, I had the opportunity to study abroad in the United States. I lived in Ashland, Virginia for 5 months where I broadened my international horizon while meeting new friends and gaining knowledge about the particular field I am interested in, organizational psychology. After I came back, I had half a year left before I would start my masters. Therefore, I started orienting about different options to figure out what I wanted to do and I came to the decision that I wanted to apply my gained theoretical knowledge in the work field. This would lead to insights about how to function in the professional work field and handle the challenges it brings along.
