-I am a chemical engineer who is looking for a starter job.
-Preferable domains: R&D, Process Engineering and Validation and quality
-Personality treats: Analytical, team player, flexible, studious and an enthusiastic person.
Graduated as a chemical engineer, I began searching for a starter position. A job opening with varied tasks appeals to me, to clarify it is more interesting for me that the description contains both technical and social aspects. For the technical side I find it interesting to execute technical studies, to do research, to improve processes and/or products or to follow up day-to-day activities of a process. Thus tasks where you can use your analytical skills, the ability to look at problems at different angles, have variations in the technical tasks and last a hands-on mentality seems attractive to me. Also innovative projects are an extra plus for me. Next the social aspects that appeals to me are more in the trend of the ability to work in a team, the possibilities to come in contact with different departments or to have to certain degree customer’s related tasks. To develop myself in the interest of the company, first I want to prove myself to you by starting as a junior and acquire the necessary experience. In the long run I would like to lead a project or a team.
To give a few examples of jobs that might interest me: process engineering, R&D engineer and Validation Engineer. Of course I am always open for other kinds of jobs.
I would describe myself as a team player, flexible, enthusiastic and studious person. I am always prepared to acquire new knowledge. The latter statement I want to illustrate this to you by presenting the following, after graduating as an industrial chemical engineer I continued my studies to achieve a higher degree namely chemical engineering. Also I am inclined to say that I am slightly more a practical then a theoretical person.
If you have any remaining questions I would gladly answer them.
