It is this variety she was looking for after school which is why she decided for an apprenticeship as Industrial Clerk, “At the end of my time in school I was looking for a various and demanding profession in the economic sector, in which I can also use the English language.”
At GERMAN NAVAL YARDS great emphasis is placed on variety in apprenticeship, “Our trainees work in nearly all departments in order to get a good impression into the variety of the yard and the future profession”, Carmen Walter, responsible training manager states.
“Yes, sometimes I was thrown in at the deep end”, Jule tells, “but in the end this has helped me develop quickly and independently.”
And her trainer adds, “It’s about this honest and serious interest, the courage to try new things combined with pleasure in working which characterizes Jule and helped her to finish her apprenticeship with excellence.”
Today Jule Behrens is working as project assistant in the repair department dealing with customers of all over Germany and worldwide. “I am glad to have this daily variety and the communication with different people. That’s what I’ve been searching for,” the industrial clerk says.
The importance of training is growing more and more. “We like to train and thus ensuring our own qualified junior employees, which we will be needing in the future more than ever”, states Carmen Walter.
