"When I decided in 2014 to finish my then current teaching degree and to change the focus of my studies, it quickly became clear to me that, in addition to my mathematical interest, practical content should not be neglected in my new studies. Accordingly, I looked for a company that offered a dual study program in my fields of interest and enabled me to start my professional life through personal and collegial interaction. Today I can say that my decision for the dual study program in logistics and for Schnellecke was exactly right and I am still incredibly grateful that I got this second chance through Schnellecke.
During the four and a half years of training and study, study phases at Ostfalia University in Salzgitter alternated with practical phases in the company at Schnellecke at approximately three-month intervals, during which I was able to apply and deepen the knowledge I had acquired during my studies. Through the Quality and Environment Division, the packaging planning of SLV in Fallersleben, the Business Development (especially the Strategic Customer Development Division), the Legal and Insurance Division, a stay abroad in Slovakia and Hungary and the CKD planning of SLV, I gained numerous, interesting and diverse insights into the world of logistics at Schnellecke.
After two and a half years, in the winter of 2018/2019, I took the final examination at the Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK) for the apprenticeship as a forwarding and logistics services clerk integrated in the dual study program. I successfully completed the dual study program "Logistics Management in Practice" at the beginning of January 2021 with the bachelor thesis, which I wrote in the CKD planning department at SLV.
At this point I would like to thank all supervisors and colleagues of the departments who accompanied me during this time, supported me in my professional and especially personal development and welcomed me so warmly in the team and in this way facilitated my career start. My special thanks go to Ms. Hinze, who has always shown great commitment to the training and study topics and, especially in the last few months, has always been there to help and advise me. Finally, I would like to thank Daniel Unger and my colleagues at the Soltau and Fallersleben sites for their support in preparing my bachelor's thesis.
I am very pleased to be able to remain with the company and support the Regional Controlling Germany team - initially as part of a trainee program."
