Career examples at Fresenius Medical Care

Carola Luebbers – Engineer specializing in Medical Engineering in Schweinfurt

What are your current tasks?

I work in the Development department as a technical assistant for project and project life cycle management.

How did you join the Fresenius Medical Care family?
During my studies in medical engineering I did my practical training semester at Fresenius Medical Care at the Schweinfurt site and gained my first practical experience in the company.
Since I enjoyed my tasks there and the corporate climate, I decided to apply to do my degree dissertation at Fresenius Medical Care. The Schweinfurt plant really interested me since this is where most of the development activities take place. I had the opportunity to choose between several topics. My advisor gave me plenty of advice when I was deciding on which one to choose. Due to the positive experiences I had at the company and the fact that Fresenius Medical Care was one of the few companies in the region that was still hiring people at the end of 2009, despite the economic crisis, I applied and was hired after completing my degree dissertation.

What goals do you have within the company?
My goal in the future is to obtain more knowledge and experience at Fresenius Medical Care and to continue to assume more and more responsibilities when it comes to complex problem solving and complex projects.

What do you consider to be special at Fresenius Medical Care?
I really appreciated the support I received during my degree dissertation.
Not only my advisor but also my colleagues supported me in any way they could. At the same time, I always had enough freedom to be creative and put my own ideas into practice.
