What Bart says about being an Intern at Cisco Supply Chain
“During my time as an intern I got full responsibility for an international project from day one. 
As part of my assignment I spent 4 days in the Czech Republic and had to collaborate with different departments within Cisco. I really appreciated all the time and effort they invested in me. In fact, I enjoyed working at Cisco so much that I am now employed by them.”

We connect everything - people, process, data and things. We innovate everywhere to create fresh ideas and possibilities. We make a meaningful difference that will benefit everyone - our people, our customers and the world around us.
