Dual student in the field of industrial engineering
For Jonas Böhm, it was clear from the start that he would like to work in a technical or business field one day. Now, as a dual student in industrial engineering at WMF, he has laid the foundations for his future career choice and talks about his experiences in a short interview.
What tasks do you work on?
Even during the theoretical stages, my study program is quite varied and ranges from conventional business administration to simple programming language and experiments in the laboratory. The structure of the practical stages depends on the respective department. I really enjoy working in logistics and purchasing, for example, because I am involved in the day-to-day business, which gives me a good insight into the different areas of responsibility. The dual study program offers the key advantage of already being able to gain important practical experience while studying. This gives me the opportunity to directly apply the material learned in the theoretical phases in the company and thereby improve my understanding.
Why did you choose us? What do you like about WMF?
I had my first contact with WMF during a seminar at the Wirtschaftsgymnasium (secondary school specializing in economics and business studies) when we had the opportunity to interview the training manager on the subject of work-life balance. After the interview, he took the opportunity to tell us a little about the dual study program at WMF. And it was a success: Two out of three students in my group subsequently chose WMF. These kinds of personal conversations as well as events such as the “Training night” should not be taken for granted and help students to get a good impression of WMF as an employer. Now that I’m at WMF, there is one more thing that I really appreciate when I am at work: the great food in the company restaurant in Geislingen.
Have you had any experiences with us that particularly linger in your memory?
Every year, WMF has a stand run by students and trainees at the Christmas market in Geislingen. In addition to drinks, products – such as handmade shoehorns – made by apprentices in the training workshop are also available there. Being part of this is always a lot of fun.
