Would you please describe your career path to us.

I have written an unsolicited application to train as a paper technologist. As a result, I was invited to complete a week's internship. That's where I got a taste for paper making. After the week, a recruitment test was carried out and one day later I got a phone call to see if I still wanted take part in the training. I was very happy and, of course, accepted. After just under a year I quickly realised that I wanted more, because everything went well at the vocational school in Altenburg. So when I was asked if I could imagine an university study afterwards, I immediately agreed. The training ended in June 2011 with a final grade of 1.1. Then I spent two months as a skilled worker in stock preparation and at the paper machine, partly additionally, partly independently as a substitute. The studies began in mid-September 2011, three years of theoretical education in Gernsbach and Karlsruhe, 4 practical theses, 1 theoretical dissertation and the bachelor thesis, followed by the Bachelor of Engineering for Paper Technology with a final grade of 2.0. Shortly before that, the opportunity to become a process engineer presented itself in Trostberg. I seized this opportunity and commuted every two weeks from October 2014 to October 2016. In autumn 2016 I returned to my Spremberg home, where I have been in charge of production since February 2017.
