Professional development is important to me. And quite soon, I’m moving to Singapore to advance my career. It’s a big step for me and also for our whole family.
Since I finished my business administration and industrial engineering degree, I have been working in IT. It’s an exciting and dynamic field and one of the key pillars of a globally networked company. IT application management has always been my area of expertise. Developing solutions for customers is a challenging task, especially on a global level.
Is IT a male-dominated field? No, it’s more a question of personality, know-how, and your ability to drive projects. During my career so far, I have always had great support from my managers and, with the help of flexibility from all sides, I have never lost sight of the career goals I set for myself. You need, of course, team spirit among your colleagues and a dynamic network. Especially in an era of increasing digitalization, “digital natives” play a key role and I really appreciate the opportunity to share experiences and ideas. The close collaboration with the Evonik segments also provides daily motivation and enables continuous learning. I am sure that in Singapore too, team spirit and my curiosity to learn new things will be the key to successful projects!
