What has been your career path?
After graduating from middle school, I completed a dual vocational training program to become a bank clerk, during which I earned my high-school diploma at the same time. Afterwards, I did a voluntary social year in a day nursery and then spent another year in Australia and New Zealand to gain experience abroad and improve my language skills in the form of a Work & Travel stay. In 2019, I decided to study business administration at the University of Applied Sciences Munich while working as a student employee at a bank. Since I decided to major in taxation and was able to gain initial work experience in one of the Big Four auditing companies during the internship semester, I decided to work in this field in the future. Therefore, I am now happy to work as a student employee at the law firm HLB Linn Goppold.
What motivates you in your everyday work?
In my daily work, I am motivated in particular by the varied tasks, as well as the feeling of having helped clients in their tax matters or in financial accounting. In addition, there is a pleasant working atmosphere, which makes it possible to apply and deepen the knowledge gained from my studies in practice. Furthermore, the firm always offers opportunities for further training and supports this with flexible working time models.
