Interview apprenticeship electronic technican
Why did you decide to make this apprenticeship?
After I dropped out of my studies in information technologies in the second semester, I wanted to start an apprenticeship. That fore, I looked at all the apprenticeship possibilities, together with the respective activities. In the end, I decided to become electronic technician because within the apprenticeship I found all of those topics, that I liked in my studies (balanced activities with a lot of manual work).
Tell us about your application process?
I applied in writing and following received a job-interview invitation. After that I was allowed to do a week of trial work. After the trial period, I was accepted very quick and able to start working as intern right away until the official start of my apprenticeship.
Which expectations did you have before your apprenticeship and have they been fulfilled?
In general, I was surprised very pleasantly. At first, I expected to take on tasks as an apprentice that no one else wanted to do and were rather simple. However, I was quickly given my own tasks which I worked on completely independently and was also allowed to help other colleagues with development projects.
Which departments did you get to know during your apprenticeship?
During my apprenticeship, I worked in all technical areas, i.e. production, development, design and service.
