Yasmin Wieland

Bachelor Trainee in Innovation

“At university I attended corporate entrepreneurship lectures, and was fascinated by the subject. I definitely wanted to see the world of innovation in practice. That’s how I ultimately ended up in the PFLab, the PostFinance innovation laboratory, whose team spanning all sorts of disciplines welcomed me with open arms. My role does come with responsibility, but I also have a lot of freedom and I am able to develop. I am thrilled about the trust I am shown, and have learnt one thing: theory and practice do have things in common – I just find the latter even more fun.”

Till Roost

Bachelor Trainee in Market Research

“I would never have thought that after my degree in Political Sciences and Sociology, I’d end up working in a bank. Yet at PostFinance, I was given a warm welcome, and I was able to take on and manage my own projects in the market research team right from the start. The open, friendly company culture also helped me feel at home as soon as I arrived. In addition to the work the traineeship involved, there was always enough time to gain insights into other projects or to attend training courses. This is why I think this traineeship is a really welcome change between my Bachelor’s and going on to do a Master’s.”
