Field report

My reason for applying to Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH is relatively simple: I've been flying a lot since I was a little kid and have always been impressed by the processes at the airport. I've also been a technology enthusiast for a long time, so I really wanted to do something manual.

Since I was also looking for a large and public company that promised a secure job in the future, I decided to train as an industrial mechanic at Berlin Airports. The first day at the company was very well organized. We were given many impressions of the various departments in the form of presentations. Among other things, we had a well-planned trainee trip, which broke up individual groups and made us all into one big group. In summary, I can say that I was very well received by everyone.
