After a total of 2.5 years, I was finally able to successfully complete my training. After completing the written exam at the end of November, all that remained was my project documentation and the final oral exam. For my project, I was allowed to analyze and optimize a script that uses sales data to predict how often an item is likely to be sold in the next month.
While I was working on the project, I had to write a documentation on the side, which I then had to send to the IHK by January 10.
After that, I prepared for the oral part of the exam. This consisted of a presentation (about the project) and the technical discussion.
The exam took place at the IHK training center in Heilbronn. At 7:45 am I could already enter the room to prepare everything for my presentation. The 15min presentation went by very quickly thanks to a lot of practice in the company. In the subsequent technical discussion, I was then asked about all the topics that were relevant in the 2.5 years. After the examiners agreed briefly, I finally received my slip for passing the exam. Afterwards, I was able to go home with a good feeling and relax for the rest of the day. I’m already looking forward to my tasks in the Order Manager Analytics department, where I’ll be working until October, when I start my dual study program in business informatics at TecAlliance.
