Since Tele2 is a larger company than Com Hem, in combination with the fact that they operate in several markets whilst Com Hem has only operated in the Swedish marketmy role became broader — a positive change if you ask me! We have a ton of fun together and it is great to always be able to reach out to other trainees, whether it be for help, support or advice.
The biggest and greatest change is that I now have gotten a ton of highly skilled, new colleagues! Everyone at Tele2 has been very welcoming and helpful, which has helped me to quickly adapt to my "new" role as a Tele2 trainee. Definitely the strong, value driven culture and how it really engages the people within the organization.
In all honesty, no day is like the other but I'll try to give you a hint of what a day could look like. I start my day around Throughout the rest of the day, I join in on various meetings with the CEO, prepare material e. Board materialand work on different projects that I am a part of. On top of this, I participate in joint activities with the other trainees. At the moment, we are in the middle of recruiting our successors — fun to say the least!
In one of the projects that I am a part of, I got to take lead on a complex workshop exercise with several members of the Leadership Team. The preparations were extensive and time consuming, but when we to carried out the exercise with a successful outcome, it was well worth the long hours of preparations.

I have had many great experiences so far but I must say that being part of arranging the Extra General Meeting, where the merger was approved by our shareholders was something extra. Even though the merger was still subject for regulatory approval at the time, the shareholder approval was a vital step towards the final merger of the two companies, making it feel like I was a part of a historical moment.
Be fearless and dare to go outside of your comfort zone — that is where the true magic happens! Also, I love to learn new things. I believe that the new Tele2 has a greater opportunity to meet changing customer requirements and that the merger will favour the company's digital transformation. There are interesting challenges which lie ahead of us, since we now will build up on a new organizational structure, common culture and way of working.
Moreover, the new Tele2 brings even more awesome colleagues. I graduated from the M. Apart from my studies I did an internship at Tetra Pak and worked part time within B2B sales development. There were many reasons, but to point out a few things, it would be an opportunity to work close to top leaders, working in a challenging high pace environment, and within a diversity of both strategic and operative tasks.
As a trainee, you get an opportunity to challenge old processes, to be creative, and to take bold initiatives and create your own path. This felt like the perfect way to start my career. What are your hobbies and passion outside work? Running is my personal therapy, which gives me a lot of energy. I love travelling, especially if it involves a pair of skis.
I guess I also could say that everything that involves learning or trying out new things is a passion. The coolest thing on the earth right now is the AI technology. So, when I have a window in my schedule I like to attend tech events and learn more about this emerging tech field. Do you feel that your role as a trainee has changed since the merge with tele2?
I have been involved in the planning of the merger since the beginning of the trainee program and therefore my daily work as a trainee has been very different from what it otherwise would have been. Believe in yourself and choose your path depending on passion. Dare to step outside your comfort zone and be open to change. The biggest turnover for my trainee role, due to the merge, is probably that I got to be trainee for both the CIO of Com Hem and old Tele2 the first half year of the program.
I am embracing the fact that I will get the opportunity to follow four different top leaders during the first year of my career! When it comes to the old Tele2, I think it is how well the company has anchored their key values in their culture and daily work.
Talking about the new Tele2: I love big families! I can't actually say that I have a typical day at work. My work involves a lot of meetings and work together with my executive and other managers in the organization.
This part of my work is all about having big ears and help my executive with the ongoing work. Besides that, I have worked with a wide variety of different initiatives. I got the responsibility to lead a project, that involved people from both the business and the IT side at an early stage of the trainee program.
Best experience at Com Hem since the merger so far? To get insights and learn from the planning, decision making of initiatives related to the merger.
I have had access to executive meetings and material from the start, which has given me a deeper understanding of the transformation work.
Maybe you will find your dream job where you least expect. When it comes to finding your passion, knowing your values will really help you gain some clarity. Don't be afraid to ask for a cup of coffee or lunch with people that seems to have interesting roles. Most people are more than happy to help. Merging Tele2 and Com Hem was the best thing that could ever happen to both companies, and I really believe that we will manage to bring out the best in each of them. Except floating around on a giant flamingo in the middle sea the previous summer, I studied B.
During my studies, I went on exchange semesters to the U. Well, to work closely with an Executive when you are newly graduated only happen once in in a lifetime. I really wanted to take that chance to see such a big and successful company from a high-level perspective. Honestly, almost everything except yoga, going to museums and painting. In my teenage years, soccer was a great part of my life but then Chalmers and sustainable career plans happened.
So, new role and new company — which means nothing is the same. BUT that is also something I like, since I do love to see and learn new things. Your life, your choices! Try to not focus on what other people are interested in and want to do.
If you do what you like, you will also become good at it. New role and new company. Tele2 in general compared to Com Hem: The size of the company.
