In 2017, after my Mathematics study, I started the SAP traineeship. During the training you learn the basics of SAP and you can make a good choice in which you want to specialize. I find the combination of functional and technical knowledge particularly interesting.
I still use much of the technical and functional knowledge I gained at iTrainee on a daily basis in my work. And thanks to the traineeship, I found out that the technical side suits me better than analyzing data.
The SAP traineeship taught me how to solve challenging issues, but also how to believe in mystelf. During my time with iTrainee, I built an extensive network, found a great employer and the love of my life.
After studying Business Administration, I was looking for a traineeship to gain practical experience and more in-depth knowledge at the same time. iTrainee’s traineeship is highly recommended for both SAP and soft skills.
Going from studying to fulltime working seemed a very big step to me, which is why I wanted to do a traineeship first. My study in Business Economics was very broad whereas the traineeship is very focused on gaining specific knowledge and practical experience.
