Just like Bob Dylan – „Being a student“ at IT-Informatik

25.10.2018 Philipp Grundmann, translated by: Rebecca Pichler

My name is Philipp, I am 20 years old and at the time, I am studying business informatics in the 5th theoretical semester. 

I think that it must be interesting for young people to know that you experience as a student in the dual studies programme, what challenges you meet in your everyday life and what kind of experiences can be made. 

During my studies, I mostly made positive experiences. In my practical semesters at IT-Informatik, I was lucky enough that my particular supervisor integrated me into the team already very early. This made the daily work routine immensely more pleasant and easier, especially with regard to the tasks and work that had to be done.

Because of the block like structure of the semester, it is hard to be included into the daily business. This is why you always think about what types of tasks a student can do during his time at the company. However, there is always a suitable solution or task.

It is certainly possible that you struggle sometimes, but here, you always receive support.

The structure among each other in particular has so far worked perfectly. We students (business administration and business informatics) communicate a lot, also beyond work, and support each other as much as possible.

My motivation to work at IT-Informatik is to have a pillar in work life.

So far, I always felt well accepted and appreciated. To me, this is very important.

Everyone somehow dreams about earning big money, having a great house and a sports car. I admit that I feel the same. However, I think that if contentment and appreciation can be found in the profession, money does not play as big of a role anymore.

The best way to finish this is with a quote of Bob Dylan, because he once said:

What's money? A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and goes to bed at night and in between does what he wants to do.
