Laila's experience as a student intern
Laila is a student who decided to complete her internship at ERICH JAEGER. In her first week, she got to know our technical department. That is where she tested control units, soldered cables and contacts, repaired displays and built plugs. With help of our technical product designer, Laila applied her newly learned knowledge and drew several product views herself. Using a computer program, she designed various shapes and eventually designed her own piece. (View the result here.)
Laila's second week started off with an introduction to the processes of the Purchasing Department. Here, she helped to pick out furniture for the reorganization of a new office. In the Marketing and Communications Department, Laila was involved in the improvement process of the ERICH JAEGER website. She analyzed a rapid user test and identified the needs and demands of our customers. Her findings helped to make our website as user-friendly as possible. Finally, after visiting a trade show in Frankfurt at which our sales team was exhibiting, Laila had the chance to get to know the whole ERICH JAEGER Germany team at our summer party in Friedberg.
If you too, like Laila, would like to find out which profession suits you, then get in touch with us! We will be happy to show you around the company.

Key Account Manager at Erich Jaeger France Sarl
"I had 100% support from my superiors all the time. They answered any kind of questions about technical details or about the company. Thanks to them, I was able to reach the level that I’m at today."
Head of Development of the JAEGER Group
"If you're only in one country, you might only be aware of what is happening on the surface. But to really visit the factory on site and talk to the people over a longer period of time, that trains compassion and understanding among each other."
Head of Wire Harness Development at Erich Jaeger in Friedberg, Germany.
"In 2016, I asked our managing director at that time which kind of career opportunities were available for young employees at ERICH JAEGER. He then suggested that a degree was necessary to advance to management level. I then found a suitable correspondence course at the Technical University in Friedberg. Normally, a bachelor's degree is a prerequisite for a master's degree, and fortunately the THM offered this in a package, so I had the opportunity to complete both degrees."
Project Manager Components and Systems at Erich Jaeger in Friedberg, Germany
"Nothing is impossible. There is always a solution, even if the path to achieving the goal has to be adapted. Adapting or changing goals is not a defeat but holds new opportunities."
Head of Supply Chain Management at Erich Jaeger in Friedberg, Germany
"Intercultural competence is very important here and the international teams are a real enrichment. Every culture is different, but in the end everyone is the same and has their own problems and goals. There is a different working atmosphere at each location. In China, for example, I regularly played basketball with colleagues."
Head of Inside Sales at Erich Jaeger in Friedberg, Germany
"My path has definitely taken one or two turns that I didn't see coming before. Of course, you have to bring a certain flexibility with you. Sometimes opportunities simply arise. Five or six years ago, I would never have thought that I would become head of the Inside Sales team."
Project Manager Components and Systems at Erich Jaeger in Friedberg, Germany
"It used to be much less common than it is today for girls to pursue a technical profession. I was 16 when I started. And as a 16-year-old girl, I was really an outsider, or rather a rarity. (…) But I never perceived the issue as a problem here. It was rather pleasant for everyone that a woman was finally part of the team."
Production Manager at Erich Jaeger, s.r.o. in the Czech Republic
"It is important to set priorities and plan your time correctly. It's not very easy in challenging situations, but without priorities you solve everything and nothing as a result."
Developer of hard- and software in the Development Department at Erich Jaeger in Friedberg, Germany
"The team is just great and honestly I believe that you won't find this kind of solidarity and a place where work is this much fun, regardless of the activities, that often."
Graduate Engineer of Electronic Development Software at Erich Jaeger in Friedberg, Germany
"The control unit development continued to work more closely with the electric harness development and I found that very exciting. However, I didn't have an engineering degree to be able to help develop control units. So in 2006, I decided to study engineering."
Personnel Specialist at Erich Jaeger in Friedberg, Germany
"From payroll- and time-management to recruiting and employee motivation, there's everything in terms of HR tasks. Since we're a relatively small company, that makes it very diverse."
Head of Strategic Purchasing at Erich Jaeger Mexico S. de R.L. de C.V.
"We are a global company and thankfully we have colleagues working all over the world that support each other."
