Recruitment initiatives to attract young people at Mars Polska

Mars is a “learner-centred” organisation laying stress on developing skills and leadership qualities.

Mars focuses on independence and is, consequently, looking to employ people with specific characteristics and skills. For many years the company has been offering internship programmes for students in their final years of studies. It is particularly vital to the company to attract the most talented and ambitious graduates to the team.

Mars Business Experience is a programme for students who are fluent in English and who already have certain achievements to their credit. Selected individuals are being proposed a 3-6-month paid internship in the course of which they independently perform a responsible task under the supervision of a superior. The interns who make a difference get an opportunity to become the company’s employee.

Mars Challenge Hunters is a platform that compiles contests-challenges for students. Solutions need to be sent over to the office, and the best candidates will be awarded and invited to the company with a view to establishing possible cooperation (employment contract or any other convenient form of cooperation).

Practical Knowledge Academy experience is based on regular training-workshop meetings for students organised all over Poland (15 universities), at which the company presents itself as well as a case study with a number of thematic areas addressed. The best candidates get an opportunity to participate in paid summer internships and – upon their completion – to sign an employment contract, provided that both parties are satisfied with the cooperation.
