How does a trainee program differ from a direct entry?
A trainee program not only prepares you for your future role and area of business but moves you through a variety of different areas to get a holistic view. This provides you with a broad range of skills and knowledge, and provides a solid foundation on which to build up your own personal network and career. After graduation, you can, of course, also enter directly. Unlike as a trainee, you would not have previous experiences working at Continental and in the position you applied for, though.
