ZF Trainees are a group of young people taking part in the ZF Global Trainee Program. In the #traineeblog they give insights about the life as a ZF Trainee.
My name is Andrea Reynoso and I come from Guadalajara, Mexico where I studied Industrial Engineering and Business Innovation. Before and during my studies I often heard about the wide range of possibilities that there are for someone who works as an Industrial Engineer. Of course, this was one of the things I liked the most about it and at the same time it was also something that worried me a little cause I was not completely sure of what I liked the most. Now I am lucky to say that by being part of the ZF Trainee program I found an opportunity where I can explore different fields and have a better understanding of what is it that I like. For instance the different projects but also other activities such as the participation in this blog!

In my case, for my first project I started working in Dielingen, which was quite interesting to experience considering the fact that I come from a city which is just a “little” bit bigger. Nevertheless, before that my only experience that I had in Germany was more in the south so added to the enriching experience that I had with my project it was really nice to know more about other regions of the country!
Currently most of us are working in the production internship, the majority here in Saarbrücken and it has been such an incredible experience. With still one week to go, the forecast of the activities looks very interesting and you can tell that all of us are looking forward for it, given the great experience that has been so far. Anyway further details about this experience will be shared later on!
I initially thought that going through so many changes in a short period of time sounded a little overwhelming, but now I know that the best part of all is sharing the experience with a great group of people like the current trainee batch which is pretty cool (as mentioned in my first post) and other colleagues from the different activities. Therefore, this feeling is never negative and is truly inspiring to keep going and enjoying the ride.
