I’ve been working for Hirschmann Automotive as an apprentice trainer for over six years now. Time flies, but that’s probably because I’m really comfortable with everything; with my area of responsibility, with the teaching team, and with the young apprentices.
Most of my work involves the technical and practical training of the apprentices in the areas of CNC milling, CAM programming, cycle turning, and the fundamentals of pneumatics. In addition, I support them with the theoretical content of the education program and occasionally act as a point-of-contact outside their family for personal issues. I enjoy the versatility of my job very much, with every day bringing new challenges!
What I particularly appreciate about Hirschmann Automotive as a company is the high level of importance which is attached to the apprenticeship program. We work in a great training workshop with the best equipment and receive enough support and funding for projects of all kinds. My experience has shown me that this is not to be taken for granted. As a result, we are in a position to make almost anything ourselves, such as a fidget spinner or infinity cube, as we did last year, during student visits. And just recently we built a 2.5 by 1.8 meter steel deer, which weighed in at around 260 kg, for the apprentice dance ball!
For me personally, it feels good to be working for a company that offers excellent training to its young professionals, and, after their successful graduation, opens many different doors and career opportunities for them.
