Graduating from university is a great feeling until asking yourself one important question: what comes next? On the job market, it is not always easy to overlook all the different possibilities provided. A trainee program like offered by Munich Airport International (MAI) is one of them. For me, it turned out to be the best opportunity for a successful start of my professional career.
When I finished my master degree in Business Administration with a focus on finance and controlling, the only thing I knew was that I would like to work in the aviation industry. Ever since my childhood, I have been fascinated by airports. My internships in the transportation sector and airline industry in particular strengthened that view. Also, two semesters abroad as well as my passion for travelling fortified that an international work environment with different cultures is what I was looking for.
Since day one of my traineeship, no day is like the other. During the 18-months program, I had and still have the chance to work in different departments at MAI as well as at our parent company. By doing so, trainees are able to gain a wide experience in several business areas. Starting with some insights at MAI, like the controlling or sales department, the trainee program also includes an assignment at the project management and in-house consulting department.
