For three weeks, I had the fantastic opportunity to work as an intern in the Leaf Department at PMI. I assisted in managing several projects, attended meetings and presentations, and learned very much about sustainable and environment friendly tobacco production, project management, reduction of CO2 emission and water pollution and of production costs. The management team was very hands-on and there was a great atmosphere within the company. The hardest part of the job was being pushed out of my comfort zone and working on projects I had no previous knowledge about, whereas the most enjoyable part was meeting highly interesting people and experiencing first-hand what it was like to work in such a large company.
Delicious lunches with my colleagues
