As a cooperative education student at hasenkamp, I get to do very practical work and have already had the opportunity to familiarise myself with the different areas of the company and to travel to different locations to help out with the work being done there. Thanks to this hands-on approach, I was able to learn a lot more and apply what I learned directly than if I had only worked in an office and had not been involved in the projects first-hand.
While shadowing projects, I sometimes spent several days on site, for example, during an assignment in Karlsruhe, where I was involved in the dismantling of a valuable sculpture over the course of a week, which was very exciting. Thanks to the numerous individual logistical challenges, I have also been able to meet many different people from all over the world.
Other exciting work outside the office has included accompanying couriers from the US to oversee the return of a painting, for example. This allowed me to actively participate in the process at the museum (packing the works and loading them into the lorry) and at Frankfurt Airport (delivering the shipping crate, then palletising it and loading it onto the plane).
In addition, I have already spent a week as an exhibitor at Exponatec in Cologne to support sales and get to know our customers better.
In my studies, I not only gain deep insights and essential knowledge for working on logistics projects, but also deal in depth with topics such as digital supply chain management, risk analysis, decision-making processes and leadership.
My studies also include a stay abroad, enabling me to work with international colleagues while consolidating my foreign language skills.
