ANASTASIA SHUSTITSKAYA – MARKETING
"I joined Nike Russia as an intern in the brand communications team, which was very exciting and a little frightening at the same time! My first task was to develop a creative initiative for online media and it was great to see how it came to life. Since then my roles have grown bigger and the tasks have got more challenging, with more responsibility and now I’ve relocated to work at the European Headquarters. Each year with Nike has been memorable and I’m looking forward to taking on even more exciting challenges in the future.
I feel that Nike is changing the world through the power of sport and this makes me extremely proud. It’s very motivating and the team around me is my fuel. I love to inspire others and seeing everyone contributing to a bigger goal really inspires me. I’ve worked with some very special people and also with great leaders, who set the bar high for their teams but also for themselves – leading by example, coaching their teams and encouraging people to take on challenges and to accomplish their goals. I’ve been given really good advice by Nike leaders, especially about keeping your life balanced - you cannot perform to your best at work if other parts of your life lack balance."

I’m very happy to be part of this great company and such a great team. It’s like a dream come true, and the absolute best thing about working for Nike is to be part of an amazing team. It feels like a family.
Everything I do at Nike is working towards the goal of enabling every person to feel like an athlete. I’ve been involved in many interesting projects and it’s a great feeling when you realize that your work has an impact and you are not only an intern. I really felt that I made an important contribution to the company during my internship.
The best advice I’ve received while working at Nike is to always be confident in yourself and your abilities. If I’m asked for advice from someone who is interested in joining Nike, I would say be confident, believe in yourself and be proactive in everything you do."
DENIS NIKIFOROV – PREVIOUS SALES INTERN
"I've been with Nike since 2008, when I started as an intern in the Nike Russia Sales department. When I stepped into the Nike office for the first time, I thought to myself “I will do everything I can to work here”, and I still come to work with that feeling now!
I feel very lucky to work for a company that shares my passion for sport, yet it’s actually the people that are the absolute best thing about working at Nike for me. There is something special about the people here – there’s a real “Nike spirit” and people don’t take things for granted - they are curious, open-minded, and always try to improve.
The best advice I’ve been given during my time here is to stay humble and treat people how you want them to treat you. The advice I would give to anyone considering applying for an internship at Nike is to go for it! Nike is a really good place to work. And, if you get the opportunity to join Nike, always be curious and always strive to improve."

"I applied to the Nike internship after a recommendation from a former Nike intern and it was a really great opportunity to learn about the business processes here at Nike. It made me discover qualities within myself that I didn’t know I had, plus I had the opportunity to work with great people!
"The advice I have been given at Nike is that success comes from teamwork. If ever I feel stuck with a problem, I get support from my team and what seems impossible is solved by working together. At Nike you are a member of a big international team where everybody is eager to share their knowledge and expertise and at the same time very keen to listen to your ideas and suggestions. You can always be sure that your voice will be heard and if you want to make a difference, you have all the opportunities to do so.
"For me, the best thing about working at Nike is that you will learn continuously. I’ve found that you don’t have to be too afraid about making mistakes; it is more important to take responsibility and dare to take the initiative."
