Apart from the professional aspects, the trainee program was also great on a personal level, spending time together with awesome people which sometimes even led to close friendships. From the end of the trainee program until now, together we had some great wedding parties, common vacations, even an Alps-X adventure tour and not to forget, we still have our yearly ski-opening as well.
After the trainee program I started in Corporate Supplier Management, where I had the task to introduce and implement Tooling Cost Calculations within ZF. This fitted perfectly to my personal target of finding a position where I could connect my mechanical background with business related issues. I developed a roll-out concept, established an expert team, and at the end I had the chance to present my results to senior management. During this job, I also recognized that I want to intensify my economical background and I decided upon a part-time master degree program in Finance & Controlling.
