Experience report Maximilian
Junior Data Integration Specialist
After the successful passing of the written and oral exams I finally finished my apprenticeship as an Information Technology Management Assistant in February 2018 after 2 years at ½ with shortening.
Now my time as a permanent employee could start. I decided for a team in the Information Management Department – Product & Source Data Standardisation short PSDS. Our team is responsible for raw data preparation for car, truck and parts manufacturers. Many subtasks are added here. I had been able to acquire the basic knowledge during my training, but many things were also new. In my daily work I have a lot to do with SQL; Microsoft Visual Studio is added to this occasionally.
My main daily business is also a large internal project with effects on the entire data structure. I am currently dealing with truck manufacturers and their data and structures that should be integrated into our systems. In addition there are always smaller tasks like adapting a web service or providing data for a colleague. I was also able to attend a business meeting at a car manufacturer to talk about raw data procurement and provision.
Since our team also has two colleagues in Cologne, I was able to gain insight into the day-to-day business and the corresponding tools for two weeks. So if the work there becomes too much, I can support them as well. For the future I intend to further develop my knowledge in SQL and in the automotive world and would also like to use further training.
