I`m about to start a fantastic internship in the US. I did my first internship within the car industry in Sweden and now I`m about to do my second internship, for the listed company Bergstrom Automotive. Stay tuned and follow my journey "Over there".

Greetings from The U.S!  It´s such a great opportunity to get an insight of how this company works to stay being on top of it. This week I have attended several big meetings like meetings for the General Managers, Sales managers, Orientation day for all new employees and Diversity training. It´s a special feeling when you listen to Americans when they have presentations, they have that special Go that I think is neccessary in all sales driven organisations. A quote that I like goes like this Today is always the most productive day of the week! I got goose bumps by listening to John Bergstrom, CEO/Founder of the company, when he talked infront of all the stores General Managers. I`ll bring with me these things for life and I get so many ideas that I`ll bring back to the car industry back home.  When I sat at these different meetings and I looked around, I was surrounded by only men. The car industry is a man´s world, and a lot of opportunity for goal oriented women. I have talked to ...

It has already gone two weeks since I got here and I absolutely love it! Wisconsin is a beautiful state with lovely people. It's such a great experience to be able to talk English every day and learn how they do business over here in the car industry. I'm working at Bergstrom General Motors of Neenah. At this dealership they sell Cadillac, Buick and Chevrolet. Bergstrom Automotive has 25 dealerahips and represent more than 35 brands, such as Porsche, Audi, Volvo, BMW, Jaguar, Land Rover, Jeep etc. Everyone who wants to be a great sales professional should go to America. I promise, it will give you invaluable skills and experiences. John Bergstrom (CEO) and Richard Bergstrom (President) gave me and the business developer at Bergstrom Automotive tickets to watch the Playoffs in football between Green Bay Packers and San Fransisco. It was a fantastic athmosphere and a great evening. It was an awesome arena and a very big event. Everyone were so cheerful throughout the whole game, even ...

Hi teachers, students and prospective students.  The countdown has begun until my trip to the U.S. takes place. I leave Sweden the 29th of December to be met by the president of the company Richard. A. Bergstrom at the airport in Appleton, Wisconsin. It's quite a story, I shall take it from the beginning. My name is Charlotte Bergström and I`m 22 years old. Before I started at IHM Business School, I lived in the U.S. and played soccer for a year. After that I was ready to start my business career and moved to London in England and began working as a saleswoman at Oxford Street. I had two great years, where I learned invaluable things. Back in Sweden I needed to add a theoretical background to the work I had done. IHM Business School was an obvious choice for me. I've been working extra in the car industry and I see that industry as incredibly exciting with a lot of development opportunities. I did my first internship at Bilia where I was in the sales department, and where I now do w...
