Become A Trainee: About us
An increasing number of high potentials don't feel tied anymore by country or language barriers and are willing to travel to numerous destinations for a challenging job.
"Larger companies are anxiously looking for ways to attract and retain young talent", says Tom Hamers. "Qualitative young graduate programs offer quite some potential to achieve this". But to set up a qualitative programme you have to pay attention to several topics at the same time. And that's exactly what a group of young enthusiastic entrepreneurs are focusing on with their website www.becomeatrainee.eu. "Initially the purpose was to provide an overview of all young graduate programs (traineeships) in the Benelux. Herewith Become A Trainee fills, as we concluded ourselves after our study, a gap in the market."
The website was launched mid 2008. Already pretty quickly the objective became much more than bringing potential trainees into contact with companies. "During the summer of 2010 we launched an online survey with trainees and (ex-)trainees. For this research we developed a methodology to measure the quality of a traineeship. Through the benchmarking capabilities, companies from different industries can evaluate and compare their young graduate program (traineeship).
What initially started as a simple website, quickly evolved to a knowledge center. "With consultancy and practical tips we help companies to improve their traineeships. Companies that want to start a young graduate program can also count on our advisory services.
