“I was aware of Liebherr from an early age because my mother has worked there for more than thirty years as a painter, and she is very happy. But that was not my main reason for choosing a traineeship at Liebherr. I wanted a fairly large company that could offer me security but also an interesting course with lots of prospects. And with Liebherr I felt I was laying exactly the right foundations for my professional future.
I am training as an industrial clerk, and I really appreciate the variety of insights into the company’s structure that going through the different departments has given me. Before leaving each department we complete a LIFE (Liebherr feedback) process, where we learn to assess our own performance and then compare that with our trainers’ assessments. Feedback is very important to me so that I can grow, and learn from mistakes.
During my training I have also gained many experiences that have given me a better understanding of the world of work. Right at the beginning, I was able to tag along on a business trip to one of our suppliers. It made a big impression on me to be present at such important negotiations. Then in my second year of training, I went to Wales for four weeks to improve my English.
Looking back, I am very grateful for the experiences I have gathered during my training, and I am looking forward to more in the future at Liebherr. I definitely feel very well prepared to start my career.”
