Right in the middle of it - training at IMS

Right in the middle - training at IMS right in the middle scaled RIB IMS

After graduating, I had the choice: Media or IT? Since I could not decide immediately, I worked once and saved a bit, travel can not hurt.

At the same time, I did some research: Internships in the media sector were either unattractive or overcrowded. But without an internship, there is no meaningful picture.

What I expected in IT, I knew against it. So the way was clear: develop applications!

Collegial atmosphere

To IMS I left because I already knew the company. The working atmosphere is very collegial, the people are open and accessible, and anyone with questions gets help. I already knew that and that trainee do not programme for the recycle bin.

My training started on 1 August 2017, about a year ago. Of course, it was a bit like jumping in at the deep end; programming professionally is already something different than writing for yourself or in computer science at school.

Direct contact

My first tasks included reporting, but I could also write a control file and search existing control files for errors. Later it became more challenging: I was allowed to programme an import routine for Excel files into a client's database.

The orders come directly from programming or from consultants. Whoever gives them to me is then also the contact person. If I have questions or ideas, the direct line is optimal; the answers come quickly and are well-founded. That helps to achieve correct results quickly.

Exciting work

Every now and then, however, there is idle time. Together with another trainee, I have used this time to lay the foundations for Java programming. Here, too, the corresponding programmers support us when we have questions.

After one year at IMS, I can say that I feel very comfortable here. The colleagues are open and helpful, the work is exciting and I learn a lot, also compared to other apprentices I meet at the vocational school.

My interim conclusion

For me, the training at IMS is a real stroke of luck.

All the best

Maren has been in training at IMS for just under a year. She now speaks C#, JavaScript, HTML, and her first websites show that she also knows CSS and web design. After work, she kicks or plays the piano - and if "Die Mannschaft" wins the fifth star, maybe both together 😉
