“The best thing about the Trainee-programme is the other Trainees! You get work-besties to have lunch with and ask all the “stupid” questions from day one.”

- Kai Arne Schröder Myklebust, Service Transition Engineer

“Telenor truly cares about our career and development! We started working on our self-development plan within the first weeks, and later on we were able to choose a direction for our second rotation that would best help us develop to reach our goals.” 

- Frøydis Vikestad, IT Enterprise Architecture
