Hear from the SAP VT/STAR program students

Phillip Kim

SAP Global VT/STAR Program provides a great opportunity for participants to experience how top-tier companies are run. By working with peers and seniors, with expertise in various fields, interns will get a first-hand working experience and develop their personal capability level. Through the VT/STAR Program, participants can also get experience in how B2B company is run across numerous industries.

Minho Lee

I participated in the project of cardinality estimation based on machine learning as the VT intern of the Research & Innovation team in SAP Labs Korea. It was a meaningful time that I could earn practical experience by writing codes & comparing implemented models. Also, I was able to develop my presentation skills by sharing the knowledge I gained while studying for the project. One of the greatest advantages of being a VT intern in SAP Labs is that I could have a variety of experiences while studying at my college.

Chaeyeon Lee

Through the SAP VT/STAR Program I encountered how to help leading companies make decisions with software solutions and I was able to develop their communication skills through tasks with intern colleagues. In particular, I was able to apply the knowledge gained from school into practice by using the study-work parallel system; which is the main source of the STAR program. It was a meaningful time to experience the advanced culture of global companies and listen to career-related advice from partners.

Jinnie Kim

I am currently working on the Job Training as a Business Technology Platform consultant within the Digital Technology Services organization. SAP supports extension development through the SAP Business Technology Platform to keep pace with the Cloud era and allows you to experience and learn technology knowledge based on network, Cloud, and infrastructure directly from field projects. It is also a great opportunity to learn how to use strategic communication skills between customers and global experts. I highly recommend participation in the SAP VT/STAR Program not only in sales and services, but also for those who want to build a technology-based career!

Huisu Kim

By participating in the SAP VT/STAR program, I was able to improve my job position understanding of Pre-sales and Consulting. As a member of SAP, without being trapped in the framework of an intern, I was able to directly participate in the project and understand various industries as well as see and feel SAP' smore autonomous and horizontal culture.
