Interview

Andreas Prüller

Trainee 2013-2015, Kapsch PublicTransportCom



It was 2013 and my degree was slowly coming to an end when I heard about the Kapsch trainee program for the first time. What appealed to me most about it?

  • The opportunity to try out several jobs for a time before deciding on one.
  • The promise of working in an Austrian company that has over 5000 employees around the world and is managed by the owning family. I thought at the time that this was an exciting mix and my suspicions were confirmed!
  • The possibility of spending some time at one of the offices abroad? No, not really – that was less exciting for me. But more on that later.

 
As I write, it is exactly 700 days since I sat here in a joint interview with 8 other candidates and also met my current colleagues. One month later was my first day of work in Marketing & Communications at Kapsch CarrierCom, my first of four trainee positions.
 
Since then, I have spent 6 months each in Sales, Finance and Marketing, and worked on exciting projects in each of them. As different as the colleagues, their characters and the challenges were at this time, they all had one thing in common: They wanted to expand my horizons and give me a comprehensive insight into the activities of Kapsch.
 
Quite often I talk with friends who are studying and thinking about their future career. During these conversations my job at Kapsch is obviously being discussed. In these moments I realize that the trainee program is a fantastic opportunity for job starters. I recommend all graduates to take such a program into consideration.  The project based work in different areas was for me the  ideal entry-level position. Besides the extensive knowledge that I acquired, I am very thankful for the opportunity that I got to know many great people inside and outside of the Kapsch World.
