I am Gülser Kıroğlu and 23 years old. I graduated in June 2017 from Logistics Management department. During my studies, I had a chance to live in Poznan, Poland for 6 months as an Erasmus Exchange student. I am always kind of person who loves talking, meeting new people and discovering new places. The Erasmus experience that I have helped me to realize this not a part of my personality, this the way of living that I love. One of the things that I learned from my university is that I am interested in working on a project based and logistics is an area which can provide lots of subject to conduct a project about it. I had three internships in different areas of logistics such as road, sea, and air transportation at well-known companies in Turkey. I gained many experiences from different departments during internships. Operation, forwarding, warehouse, and documentation can be described as the main departments that I worked for. I had a chance to apply theoretical information, which is taught at the university, in daily life.
I have been Prague for two times when during my Erasmus studies. The first time that I came here was by chance but the second time was completely intentionally because I fell in love with Prague if these are right words. After I went back to Turkey, I was thinking that I must go back to Prague again and this should not be just for traveling. Beginning of my senior year, I started to think about my career, my personal and professional development. I decided that it is better to be part of an international environment. This leads me to do an internship in such environment and it will be in Prague.
I had been searching for internships in abroad for almost 2-3 months. I made as many applications as I can not remember. Some of them responded to my applications, some of the not. Fortunately, I came across Yeye Agency at the point where I was thinking of giving up. We had an interview call and it was much better than I expected. I really liked their approach and I decided to do my internship at with Yeye Agency. When it comes to my expectations, firstly, I wish a beneficial internship period both for me and Yeye. I hope this internship will help me to create an opportunity for me to go further and develop myself mainly in my professional life.
As I mentioned before, I am a freshly minted graduate. I am a little bit confused about what to do but there is something I know which is love logistics management. It involves much more than we think and know. Doing my best is a dream and starting this internship is the first step of the plan which hopefully lead me to my dream. I believe everyone has their own joy in their own world and I wanted to share mine with other people, with different places than I have never been before.
