What our young professionals say about VSB

Elisabeth Schütze - former working student in planning department 

Elisabeth Schütze supports our project developers with their daily work in the planning department. She creates calculation tables, helps process Permit applications and communicates closely with other departments in the process. Her favourite pastimes include exercising, going bouldering, running and handicrafts.

  • Why did you choose VSB during your studies?

    I became aware of VSB during my Masters Course in Spatial Development and Natural Resources Management, during an event at the university.
    My work gives me very good insight into the company, which allows me to optimally combine theory and practice.

  • How does your activity with VSB enrich you?

    I gain practical insight into the sector by working with VSB. I can apply what I have learned in theory and gain some initial professional experience. I feel like my studies, which are sometimes not so exciting, become much more alive. You can see how a company works and learn how to adjust to the circumstances.

  • What does sustainability mean to you, and how do you integrate it into your everyday life?

    For me, sustainability means living your life in such way that the following generations will also have the chance to enjoy a good life. In practice, that means I do not own so much technology, and if something is broken I try to repair it first. I see that I can buy things second-hand, and with food, I try to buy only as much as I really need.  

  • Why would you recommend VSB to other students?

    During my activity as a student trainee I got very good insight into the company processes, and I can take responsibility while working on projects. I really appreciate the outstanding working atmosphere and the collaboration opportunities with colleagues. Playing volleyball together after work is a perfect way to let the day fade away and relax.  

 

Nicole Kühn - Financial accountant

“The transition from the ‘trainee life’ into working life was easy and almost unspectacular at VSB because I was already given a lot of individual responsibility in accounting (my later ‘dream department’) during my training period. Personal development is really important at VSB and participating in seminars and training sessions to build and expand our expertise is encouraged and supported. VSB offers an outstanding platform for entering the world of work.”

Rebecca Jopp - former apprentice at VSB

"I started my training at VSB Holding GmbH as an industrial management assistant in August 2014. I was able to work my way through most of the company's departments in the first two years of my three-year course. I have already gained many interesting insights into my colleagues’  work areas in the financial accounting, marketing and personnel departments, as well as in project development. I can already perform most of the required tasks independently, and I am encouraged to contribute my own suggestions. My colleagues energetically support me in implementing these, and they support my personal interests and ideas."
