I knew that I didn’t want to study at university when I was at school, and that I’d rather do something practical straight away.
When I decided on an apprenticeship as a Chemical Laboratory Technician, I quickly realized that only a limited number of apprenticeships were available for this occupation in our region. After having a look around, I eventually found a vacancy at Farbenwerke Wunsiedel GmbH and was invited to start my 3.5 years apprenticeship there as a Chemical Laboratory Technician on 01.09.2011. I spent most of my initial working time helping with the development of the powder mixtures. As part of my apprenticeship, I spent a long time preparing powder mixtures and also got an insight into the internal processes in the other departments. After my apprenticeship, I worked in the department for the development of powder mixtures and in the preparation of powder mixtures, as both departments required personnel. Over the years, however, I have become increasingly established in the development of new products.
