After the successful passing of the written and oral exams I finally finished my apprenticeship as an Information Technology Commercial Manager in February 2018 after 2½ years with a shortening.
Now my time as a permanent employee could begin, I decided to go into a team in the Information Management Department – Product & Source Data Standardization short PSDS. Our team is responsible for the preparation of raw data for car, truck and parts manufacturers and many other subtasks. I was 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 and occasionally I use Microsoft Visual Studio.
My main daily business is at the same time 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, smaller tasks such as adapting a web service or making data available to a colleague are common. I was also able to attend a business meeting at a car manufacturer to talk about raw data procurement and distribution.
Since our team also has 2 colleagues in Cologne, I was able to gain insight into the daily business and the corresponding tools for 2 weeks. So, if the work becomes too much I can support here 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 education.
