JIG Class: Former Graduate (2013)
JIG Country/ Sales Unit: China
I joined Jungheinrich back in 2013 and since then it has been a fantastic journey for me. I started in the headquarters in Hamburg where I got insights in cooperation and communication. From there, my international JIG adventure started with the rental project in Shanghai, China. Currently, I am working as the Service Operations Manager in After Sales Department in China.
My initial expectations were to see and experience a variety of different business departments, and to explore different tasks. Although, in the beginning, it was quite challenging, I do admit that the experience of exploring different departments during my JIG Program provided me with a broad network.
I am happy to be a part of the JIG Program that has been an exciting learning journey for me. If I can suggest some improvements, it would be that subsequent career development should be tracked even after graduating from the Program.
It was the opportunity to participate in multiple projects, within different departments, and in different countries. I appreciate the time spent in the headquarters where I learned and experienced cooperation and communication with colleagues from a different culture.
Entrepreneurship and growth are the most important company values for me. Growth makes us strong and safeguards our financial independence and creative freedom. We are responsible for what we do, and what we accomplish in our daily work.
After my graduation from the JIG Program, I would like to be in a role that allows me to use a wideset of skills and expertise, which I have acquired throughout the Program.
JIG is a big and nice family that brings together people from all over the world to work together as a group on certain projects.
The JIG Program is good opportunity to grow, but you need to work diligently and endure when things get tough. It is normal if sometimes you feel uncertain, frustrated or even lost because in the end, you will know that all the struggling is worth when accomplishing a successful career with Jungheinrich.
