You have a University Degree in Business & Management or Marketing.
That is a good start! Read on.
You are Passionate
You are passionate about what you do. Devotion, warmth and enthusiasm is who you are. The Graduate Program 2015 requires you to build long-lasting engagement, passion and advocacy for the brand everywhere you go.
You are an Entrepreneur
You see the bumps in the road as a great way to learn and develop into what you can be – on top, on the edge – leading the way. Moving to another country to help us build and implement the Absolut brand experience is not always going to be an easy ride. That is why you have to be self-directed and possess readiness to constantly embark on bold new ventures.
You are an Achiever
You do not wait for things to happen but take the initiative to achieve impact with your activities and transform the future. You are a highly enthusiastic and independent self-starter driven by seeing results.
You are Creative
Your perspective is that nothing is ever written in stone and that the future is not a given, it is yours to create.
You have an interest in contemporary culture
Art, fashion, design and music are close to your heart. You will be managing the Absolut brand experience, so you need to know how to combine the two and be knowledgeable about what kind of contemporary culture is a good fit for Absolut. This involves identifying core target events & influencers among creative communities in art & culture, and making sure we build strong and lasting relationships with them. It is therefore a clear advantage if you have a strong sense of the creative potential of experiential marketing for creating brand engagement.
You are fluent in English
And preferably in an additional language. You need to be an excellent presenter and communicator in order to implement our values in markets defined by different cultures. You speak and write with a high degree of professionalism and credibility. You communicate effectively with various audiences.
You are Swedish
Due to legal restrictions only Swedish resdidents will be accepted to the program this year.
You have not finished your Business & Management or Marketing studies yet.
You are welcome to apply once you have! However, if you will be finished with your studies by the end of the spring semester 2015, you are welcome to apply.
You prefer to have guidelines in order to do your work.
You like someone other than yourself to lead the way.
Meeting a new crowd can sometimes be challenging.
You think that always being attentive and listening to other people's insights and thoughts is too demanding.
Presenting in front of a lot of people is not your thing.
The thought of making a fool of yourself in public scares you immensely.
You think life is too short to work up a sweat in creating something extraordinary when you can relax.
Then the Graduate Program is not for you since every aspect of it can be described in two words: hard work.
You are in it for the money.
This 18-month journey is not going to make your wallet grow – but surely your resume and life experience account!
Having a future career goal is really not your thing
You let circumstances determine your destiny because you actually do believe that the future is a given.
