A moment that required bravery so far was when I presented our project results to the partner companies as part of a university project in Paris.
What does a master's student at TRUMPF do?
Many students gain practical experience at TRUMPF completing their dissertations, and establish valuable, long-term contacts – at all of our divisions around the world. This is what Sarah Haas did, who wrote her dissertation while working at TRUMPF's Central IT. This is why we asked her 5 questions.
"The special thing about working at TRUMPF is the openness of colleagues to new topics and new staff."
What was your bravest moment?
What is your job like?
As part of the account management team, I wrote my dissertation on "Change management in IT - designing a change process for agile transformation at TRUMPF IT". The account management team is the central point of contact for IT needs from TRUMPF departments.
What makes your job so exciting? Why do you like doing it?
As a master's student at TRUMPF writing my dissertation, I was also involved in topics relevant to the dissertation and a variety of projects. This made the job particularly fascinating because the daily tasks were very varied with opportunities to contribute new ideas to the team. While at TRUMPF, I learnt that "thinking outside the box" is not just an empty phrase but something people actually do. I also gained plenty of experience and insights into the practical aspects of work.
What's special about working at TRUMPF?
The special thing about working at TRUMPF is the openness of colleagues to new topics and new staff. I could count on the support of my colleagues in every situation. Staff are also quickly given responsibility and are able to benefit from plenty of opportunities for personal development.
What do you think people need for the job?
To fit into the account management team, you need a good sense of humour, an optimistic outlook and enjoy the work. You also need to be interested in new topics and working methods, have motivation and initiative, as well as the ability to support and work with colleagues.
