A day as a commercial employee apprentice
I start by reading through my emails and answering them. Every morning, there is a meeting with my team where everyone lists what they have coming up. In addition to tasks with a specific deadline, there are also tasks that are ahead of schedule. Being a clerk at J&J involves different tasks depending on which department you are in. Generally, you learn how to book payments, enter an invoice, author professional emails, conduct meetings, how to organize an event or help with a project. Working carefully and being able to organize myself well are among my core competencies. I have learned how helpful effective communication is in challenging situations. My highlight in my training period so far was when I was able to visit our site in Zug. There was a lot of new stuff to see, and it was remarkably interesting. My team was extremely helpful, reliable, and friendly. I felt I was in great hands at J&J. It was important to my team that I could learn as much as possible and be optimally prepared for my future career. All processes at J&J are regulated and documented. Before I end the day, I check my emails again and prepare a plan for the next day.
