The audacity to try something new is rewarded
I started my career at SEW‑EURODRIVE immediately after finishing university. During my introductory meeting, I made clear my intention to obtain my doctorate while working in the industry. The decision-makers granted me this opportunity, on the condition that I first prove myself on the job for a half year.
I was immediately integrated into a challenging and urgent research project. That made my start very interesting, but also very stressful. Despite the ever-present time pressure, I was never “left alone” by my colleagues, and my tasks grew alongside my level of knowledge. One can only describe the working environment and helpfulness of colleagues as excellent.
As part of a small team of experts, I evaluate new innovations from Research and Technology. I also support my colleagues with complex technical questions. It’s certainly never boring...
My time at SEW‑EURODRIVE after the first half year was characterized by tasks that gradually increased in importance, until I was appointed project manager for my first independent project. To have reached this point after just over a year still instills me with pride and confidence. I was also able to plan my doctorate, in parallel with the project work. Various organizational hurdles meant that this was often not easy. But despite the conflicts of opinion I may have encountered, my supervisors never left me in the lurch.
I have now completed my doctoral thesis and am enjoying a job where every day is different and exciting. This has a lot to do with my new involvement in the Technology Development department. As part of a small team of experts, I evaluate new innovations from Research and Technology. I also support my colleagues with complex technical questions. It’s certainly never boring...
