My name is Julia Speiser and I am a second-year industrial mechanics apprentice. Although I work a lot with computer-operated machine tools, I still need solid basic training with lots of practice in the different processing techniques for the various materials. I will need these techniques later for the manufacture of microtechnology products or components. It’s very exciting: not only do I have to demonstrate the specialist knowledge I have learned, I also have to show that I’m a good team player, responsible and reliable. It’s a great package.
My way to Boehringer Ingelheim
After completing my Abitur (German university entrance qualification), I looked for a good, all-round training option with prospects for the future as well as further training possibilities. I’ve always liked working with my hands, from model making to repairs at my parents’ home. I come from Dortmund and Boehringer Ingelheim’s microParts company is virtually on the doorstep. The company also has a good reputation. Bingo!
That’s why I work for Boehringer Ingelheim
After my apprenticeship in industrial mechanics, I would definitely like to develop myself further, either with a course in mechanical engineering or by becoming a technician. It’s not decided yet, but I’m currently talking to my trainers here about the possibility of a continued connection with microParts. As an engineer, I would lead projects for the purchase and validation of production facilities, or even the design and further development of new production procedures, facilities and processes.
