My name is Jana and I did an internship at Helma Interior Design in Heidelberg. I`ll give you a little insight into what I’ve done. I spent the last two weeks interning at Helma Interior, which gave me the opportunity to get to know all the areas that Helma Interior Design represents. Have fun reading!
On my first day in my internship, I went at 8 am to Heidelberg. Once there, I was greeted by Karen Niles. After we got to know each other, she introduced me to the morning routine in the store. This store is exhibited with handmade, luxurious furniture, jewelry, decorative and unique items. It is very elegant but gives you as a customer also a cozy feeling.
Later in the day I was introduced to Jannet Butzinger, the interior architect as well as Kristine Schober. On this day, Jannet Butzinger took me to visit a client not far away, so I had the opportunity to experience what the everyday life of an interior architect looks like. Furthermore, I got the task to draw a room by myself, which was really fun.
On Tuesday recruiters from Little Green visited us and presented their new products. A little later in the day, a recruiter for fabric came for a meeting and presented the newest collection of textiles. I found it particularly interesting to join those meetings and to learn trough this way more about textiles and colors. Moreover, Jannet took me with her to another client and showed me what they already did in the house and what is in process.
In conclusion I can say that it was really interesting to see how much work and love they put in the store. There is a place for every little item. Every item is standing in the right place and attracts the attention of the customer. Through this internship, I could experience the workday of each person, as well as all the tasks. I could see that it never gets boring and that the work is very diversified. In my opinion, especially this is really exciting and important.
