In addition to having a buddy, another Capgemini Invent tradition is to spend each week working in a different location during the first two months. This includes visiting offices in Berlin, Cologne, Munich, Frankfurt, Vienna and Utrecht. It’s an intensive program in which you are trained as a consultant and receive constant feedback from experienced colleagues. During this time I formed close friendships, worked hard and learned that no one – really, no one – uses APA style in the working world (thanks, five years of university!). All in all, the program gives you an informative start without completely throwing you into the deep end.
