First selection interviews held for the Rising Star Academy

Starting in April, TheValueChain will be organizing the Rising Star Academy, an intensive training program for 10 young professionals.  For a period of six weeks, they will receive training in the essentials of SAP. In order to select the right candidates, TheValueChain organized a Blitz evening.

On the evening of Thursday 31 January, ten candidates gathered in Kontich for a Blitz evening, an opportunity to get acquainted and a round of selection interviews.  During one-on-one interviews, they got to meet the consultants, team leads and managers of TheValueChain. The participants also took an analytical test.

David hopes to be selected for the Rising Star Academy: “Those who get to take part will learn a lot in a short time.  That is really worthwhile.  You are not just thrown in at the deep end, you get the chance to grow.”

Lotte is impressed with the way TheValueChain treats its employees.  “I was struck by how involved the management is.  That is so important for me in a working environment.  It is clear that they attach a great deal of importance to the Rising Star Academy. The campaign was already eye-catching, and the Blitz evening was choreographed down to the tiniest detail.”

Yannick also mentioned the team spirit as a plus point.  “The great atmosphere hits you as soon as you walk in here.  Everyone is immediately ready to help.” Yannick is already familiar with SAP eWM and is eager to learn about the other side of SAP.

Ben attended a course in Applied IT at night school and hopes that the Rising Star Academy will be the cherry on the cake.  “I know somebody who works at TheValueChain, and he told me about this opportunity. I think it’s great to be able to take part.”

A second Blitz evening is planned on Wednesday 20 February from 6 to 10 p.m.  Want to take part?  Register via
