After friends and acquaintances had enthusiastically recommended Webasto, I started my apprenticeship as an industrial clerk here. I was able to gain wide-ranging experience as an assistant in R&D, in Purchasing and at our junior company, YoungDrive. Following that, I held various positions as an assistant, including at Executive Board level. Once I completed my part-time studies in Business Administration & Business Psychology, I switched to the HR department at Webasto and have been working as a Talent Acquisition Specialist/Recruiter ever since. My work here involves intensive contact with people, which makes every day different. Internal coordination between the different departments at Webasto and HR also plays a major role in attracting the right candidates as employees. This is because the "war for talents" will continue to play a major role in the coming years. Currently, I am also working on the production of video tutorials for the internal HR job application tool.

Even though Webasto is a very large company, the atmosphere is familiar and my colleagues—and also the manner in which we collaborate—are appreciative and friendly. My advice to my younger self would be not to attend university immediately after graduating from school, but to embark on an apprenticeship, make a special effort to learn English at school, and do what you're passionate about and enjoy. After all, I still want to be happy in my job years down the line.

I started at Webasto as a working student and after my studies I started as a trainee in the project management department. As a trainee, I was able to get to know various parts of the company in and around the project management area. I deliberately chose the position as a trainee in order to get to know as many employees as possible and to strengthen my network within Webasto. The expansion of my network was not limited to the Stockdorf site; I was also able to get to know many colleagues in China and America. What I particularly liked about the trainee program was that I was able to decide in which areas I wanted to get to know. My final follow-up position was also not defined, but I was free to apply for internal positions. That's how I ended up in the new Webasto Battery division, where I'm actively helping to drive forward projects in the battery sector.

Encourage and challenge is Webasto's motto. An internal transfer gave me the possibility to expand my existing knowledge and move into a new environment that offers me many opportunities for development and room for experiments. Webasto is like a home to me. Thanks to the positive working atmosphere, the motivated colleagues and an employer with a heart, I can work there with pure joy on my projects.

I find it exciting to shape the mobility of tomorrow as part of Webasto. Thanks to the open corporate culture and the flat hierarchies, I can develop freely in my position, take on responsibility and have the support of my team. As a family-owned company, the well-being of the employees is a top priority, which helped us get through the Corona crisis in a sustainable manner, for example.

Through my training at Webasto, I was able to gain many new impressions and experiences within a very short period of time. As the world market leader, the company offers numerous opportunities to enter different areas and develop further. Even as a trainee, you learn to manage your own projects and handle a certain amount of responsibility. I particularly appreciate the freedom Webasto offers its trainees. You can contribute your ideas and suggestions and watch your project grow and grow.

The training at Webasto is very organized and varied. I am able to supervise my own projects and contribute new ideas to the team. What I like is that there is no distinction between trainees and permanent employees. The departments and trainers have a lot of trust in us and give us a lot of responsibility, which helps me to always develop and gain as much experience as possible.

Webasto gives its apprentices a unique start to their careers. You can shape your apprenticeship individually and according to your interests, and you pass through a wide range of different areas. I particularly appreciate the fact that you are regarded and integrated as a valuable member of the team. When it comes to implementing larger projects, you take on tasks independently and can contribute and implement your own ideas on a day-to-day basis. Each departmental task presents new challenges, the mastering of which is valuable experience for the future, both on a professional and personal level.

Apprentice Dual

After graduating from school, it was immediately clear to me that I wanted to do something practical in the future. I found Webasto's dual study program at the Munich Technical College very promising, as the theoretical content I had learned could be implemented directly in the company. The combination of continuous company experience and a fixed income during my studies convinced me and I would do the studies again at any time.

During my dual bachelor's degree program at Webasto, I was able to get to know various departments. I was not only at the headquarters in Stockdorf, but was also able to experience the day-to-day work in a plant in Utting near Lake Ammersee and in Birmingham (UK). After graduating with a bachelor's degree in 2020, I had the opportunity to study for my master's degree in a dual program at Webasto. Here, you are employed by a department for this period and can apply and deepen your technical knowledge in this specialist area.

The great thing about the dual study program at Webasto is that you are not only seen as a full team member from the very beginning, but are also allowed to take on responsibility.

The great trust placed in working students at Webasto is truly unique. Here, you can take on responsibility right from the start and learn something new every day. As a student in the Engineering Systems department, I am involved in many exciting projects and, in addition to gaining extensive experience with systems such as CATIA, I also get a good overview of topics such as test bench construction and prototyping.
