I was compiling a comprehensive database for Global Pharma with Scandinavian companies that might be interested in partnering with them to get into the Middle East. • Did the internship give you the skills and experience that you expected? What were the key learnings / skills that you have taken from the experience? Since I had never been in a consulting environment I learned a lot about the industry from just being at Global Pharma. In terms of my database project, I learned how to synthesize information well, and how to search quickly and effectively on websites for the information I needed to compile the database. • Would you recommend the same internship to other young professionals looking for work experience, and if yes, why? Yes! It is a very professional, yet open and friendly environment and I was able to take ownership over a project and feel like I made lasting contributions in the few months I was there. • Can you complete this sentence: “My internship with Global Pharma Consulting: 5 years from now I will remember …” I will remember the kindness that the people at Global Pharma showed me, and how willing they were to answer questions about the industry and their business as a whole for me.

My motivation for joining the Global Pharma Consulting internship programme was Paula Hassoon and Raed Suhail’s dedication and passion for their work. Although I lack knowledge of the business that they work in, the internship helped me develop and enhance characteristics within myself that will help me in my future career. As for instance being more accessible, cooperate with different types of people, how to act in professional settings, being compliant and flexible when needed, and remaining calm and supportive when sudden obstacles appear. As professionals and great leaders both Paula and Raed helped me strengthen my confidence by giving me their supporting throughout my time at Global Pharma Consulting. Leaving Global Pharma Consulting I feel empowered and self-assured to take on any future job that I feel passionate about. Consequently, through my internship with Global Pharma Consulting, five years from now I will remember the remarkable people I got the privilege of meeting and cherish all the opportunities given to me by my amazing supervisors and leaders Paula Hassoon and Raed Suhail, and not to forget all the friends I made. It is not often one can leave a workplace with solely an optimistic impression, that is why I feel the urge and obligation to recommend this internship programme to anyone with a thirst for knowledge and the high ambition of evolving their character. Thank you Global Pharma Consulting!

Cassie • What attracted you to join the Global Pharma Consulting internship programme? What was your primary motivation? There were many reasons why I wanted to intern at Global Pharma Consulting. I was interested in gaining experience in health care and the business world. Interning in Sweden and getting the opportunity to see how different cultures work and different perspectives was another huge opportunity for me. My primary motivation was gaining real world international experience. • How long were you with Global Pharma Consulting and what was your day to day role / responsibilities? I was with Global Pharma Consulting from September to December, I worked for around 6 hours a week. My day to day roles included working and reconstructing the data base for distributing companies in the Middle East. I also helped edit the english for the website. • Did the internship give you the skills and experience that you expected? What were the key learnings / skills that you have taken from the experience? This internship really helped me see how a small consulting company works and runs in Sweden and the amount of effort and work that goes into the business. I am especially interested in health care so it gave me the opportunity to view international health care in not just Sweden but also the Middle East and see how different the health care business is in Europe and Middle East Vs. America. • Would you recommend the same internship to other young professionals looking for work experience, and if yes, why? I would 100 percent recommend the same internship to other young professionals. It gives them real world experience, the small size of the company allows them to tackle big problems and work closely with the CEOs. • Can you complete this sentence: “My internship with Global Pharma Consulting: 5 years from now I will remember …” Five years from now I will remember how welcoming and helpful everyone at Global Pharma Consulting was to me and how they wanted to make sure I got the most out of my internship with them.
