Young Maersk talents inspire

This year, three young Maersk talents are featured in an annual Danish career guide designed to inspire students and inform them about career opportunities.

Each year, students at universities in Denmark and southern Sweden receive a copy of the KarriereVejviser, a 200-plus page guide that aims to help the newly educated find their path to a fulfilling career. Among the dozens of young professionals profiled are three young Maersk talents who each reflect on their current positions and career trajectories.
