My personal journey to SAP
I had so much fun to learn about coding that I wanted to attend the HTML Advanced course right away. A few months later, this also happened. After that, I participated in two more courses. My interest in programming increased from course to course. Nevertheless, I felt surprised by the question whether I could imagine to join the junior instructor team and passing on the knowledge I gained in the IT camps to the younger ones in future. I didn’t expect that, but I was very pleased and very happy to take this opportunity.
I remember the first course I accompanied as a junior instructor… it was “snap! Beginners – Build Your Own Blocks” and I noticed during this week that the role of trainer is a lot of fun for me but also a kind of a challenge which allows me continuous personal development when I share what I have learned. Teaching the kids and young people and seeing the resulting projects is a great experience.
As a result of my IT-Camp job, I also got a little insight into an employee’s working life at SAP, which I further deepened through a BOGY internship. I spent a week with a developer and gained further impressions that increased my interest in computer science and also SAP as an employer.
In the higher school level, I decided for the computer science performance course to expand my knowledge and get more insights into the world of computer science. I was also able to gain further knowledge with the continuation of my coaching activities at the IT-Camps.
When the final school examination came closer, I started thinking about how to go further after that. It was clear to me that I wanted to study something in the field of computer science. Even though I considered other companies in my research, the various dual programs at SAP attracted me a lot. I was most interested in the business informatics program for which I applied. Now, I am very delighted to study at SAP Business Information Technology from September 2021 on. I feel proud to be part of this company and I am curious and excited about what I could expect in the next three years.
