Meet Valerie Coghe

“As a graduate, the business world might seem a bit overwhelming since there are so many options. Me personally, I did not have any experience in the workplace and I didn’t know what role would fit me best. Hence why I chose for the traineeship which Daikin offers. As a trainee, I’m able to get a taste of different departments and connect with many people along the way. Everyday I’m gaining more insight in the company itself and I feel like I’m growing both professionally and personally. I would definitely recommend doing a traineeship if you’re young and eager to explore!”
