Mathias Gockeln – Testimonial

When I started to look for an internship I was sure that it would be in Asia. I wanted to see something else than Europe a different culture, different people, different views of life. So after all that I decided to see something different compared to the ‘Western Culture’. When I joined SOLS 24/7 Malaysia I was still a student, studying Human Resource Management and International Business.

I started to work with SOLS as an intern in the HR Department. I knew SOLS is in Malaysia in Kuala Lumpur, but I didn’t do any kind of deep research about Malaysia and its culture. I knew a bit what I learned in school or what I saw on TV. That was everything!

Looking back on awesome five months I can say, that I don’t regret my decision at all. It was my first time working for a NGO. The people and the environment in SOLS allowed me to develop my personal and also my professional skills. The trust from the very beginning was awesome. There is the space you need to improve yourself and also to improve the Organisation itself. People in SOLS following the same passion that makes it different from every company I worked with before. Being surrounded by people chasing the same goal and dream is inspiring and motivates you every day to do your best.

Up and downs included looking on one of my best choices I did in my life so far. I don’t regret any decision I made during my stay with SOLS. I can advise anyone who is considering to work for and with SOLS. Don’t think about it, APPLY and start the journey!!!
