Marek’s love for cars started in his childhood. After 3 semesters of hard work, applying for an internship at Skoda seemed to be the perfect match. ”I was a fan of cars since I was a little boy, thanks to my father who would take my brother and me to different car shows in Czech Republic or abroad. Although I have never owned a car, I still feel very close to the automotive industry,” explains Marek.

I work with kind, helpful and friendly people, in a nice environment where I can apply my theoretical knowledge in practice with the support of so many competent people around me. Through this internship, I get to learn about professional communication, teamwork as well as business culture. I feel pleased and happy about my internship,” says Marek.
