Tobias

Published on Jun 9, 2017. Modified on Aug 1, 2019.

My name is Tobias, I joined Schenker AG, the Head Office of DB Schenker, in Essen, Germany in early 2015 as an intern in Recruiting and HR Development. During that time, I was responsible for our international internship program and functioned as the main contact person for internal and external internship issues. Furthermore, I was involved in several global talent management projects such as the redesign of our global performance and potential process and the setup of our mentoring programs. After my internship, I had the opportunity to stay as a working student in the Global Talent Management department. 
 

In 2016 I moved to Ho Chi Minh City for five months to work for Schenker Vietnam. There I worked in the HR department, mainly focusing on HR development topics. For me personally the time I spent in Vietnam was a great experience during which I could deepen my understanding of our global company and enhance both my intercultural and work-related skills. 
 

After my stay in Vietnam I returned to Germany, where I am currently working in the Global Talent Management department at Schenker AG. In the Head Office, the working language is English and the chance to meet someone from a different country is quite high. I enjoy working on global topics in an international and dynamic environment. Where else can you have an impact on topics relevant for the entire company in coordination with decision-makers on all continents? Besides the international work environment I like the collegial atmosphere and the supportive and respectful interaction with my colleagues. Over time, colleagues turned into friends and we spend time together not only at work but also after work and on the weekends.

For me working in logistics is a great place to work as I am passionate about everything related to aviation. Whenever I get the chance to visit one of our cargo terminals I take it. In the future, I can imagine working in a Spanish speaking country, preferably somewhere in the Americas.
