The desk is my battlefield in the best sense of the word. I usually have to do rather a lot of things at the same time, which is why it is important to maintain an overview. I can organise myself and others very efficiently. As part of my vocational training as an office management assistant with Volkswagen, I learn how administration works. In addition, I get insights into how to use modern information and communication technology. Whether by phone, email or letter, I communicate constantly and enjoy doing this, and can therefore play my part in representing my company.

What is the apprenticeship all about?
