Job Shadowing for Career Starters - A Podcast with BI Scientists

In two podcast episodes, our scientists tell Ariana Kravchuk from TU Dresden their stories about how they became researchers.

Do you want to be a researcher more than anything? Or are you aspiring to shape the future as an engineer for the technologies of tomorrow? Most of us don’t have a clear idea of what constitutes our dream job. But most of us would agree that a job should be enjoyable and meaningful. It should be compatible with our lifestyle and our abilities and also enable us to advance personally and professionally. And ideally, our job will turn into our passion. In our time, we are lucky because there are ever more exciting professional fields and opportunities to forge a career path. But this also requires continuous vision and courage to make important decisions for ourselves. And this can be a real challenge for students and young professionals.


In this podcast series, Barkhausen Institut therefore cooperates with TU Dresden to give interested career starters an insight into our working world. Our employees are as diverse as their career paths. But they have one thing in common: the decisions they took in their professional lives have ultimately led them to us – a world in which we strive to shape the technologies of tomorrow for the benefit of society. It is precisely these different paths in life that come together at our company that makes our teams so successful – where everyone contributes with their unique background and experience. 
In these two podcast episodes, learn more about the people behind the research that is done at Barkhausen Institut. Listen to our scientists Sandra George, Merve Tascioglu, Tobias Kronauer and Joshwa Pohlmann as they share their personal stories about how they started their careers, what drives them and what their daily work looks like today.
