We are open to young people
For years, we have invited young people to internships and apprenticeships to the companies of Cyfrowy Polsat Group. This is the best way to get a job in our enterprise later.
"I was a bit worried that internship would turn out to be the time of coffee making and not disturbing others at work. To be honest, I applied because I wanted to earn some money. Already at the place of work at Polkomtel, it turned out that people not only have time to take care of me but I also received really interesting tasks to perform. I have felt as a part of the team from the first week, and not some bothersome nuisance. "Łukasz, intern of 2015
