During her master's degree she was approached by CAPE with the question if she wanted to participate in the 'Incompany Days'. These are Company Days where students get to know the company internally by means of a case. This day made an impression on Kim, but as she was still in the early stages of graduation, she decided to reconnect with CAPE once she had completed her master's degree. She had these conversations with the Hiring Manager Geert. These were nice and funny conversations, but because Kim didn't know what she wanted at all, Geert sent her home. “Go on holiday first and then decide what you want,” he is said to have said. In addition to the conversations she had with Geert, Kim came into contact with employees internally. She was mainly looking for an educational and fun environment and because Kim was far from finished learning, she was open to a traineeship.
In the end, she made the choice to start as a Trainee Business Consultant after graduation and her journey at CAPE. Her friend with whom she was going to make the trip graduated two months later, so Kim had to bridge that time. CAPE came up with the idea to hire her as a full-time DF employee with a zero-hour contract. After her trip, this contract would be converted into an annual contract. Thanks to this full-time job, she saved the entire trip to New Zealand within 0 months.
