"Working at LKW WALTER has much in common with travelling."

Michaela F., Transport Manager and passionate musician

Michaela F.

Like many school classes before her, Michaela visited the WALTER GROUP in her final year of high school. You might say the visit was the decisive factor because afterwards she applied for an internship. For sure it was no coincidence that the Tyrolian born immediately saw a career path there for herself. But first she went on an extended trip around the world.

Mark Twain once said, 'you have to travel to learn'. And as it happens Michaela didn't just encounter foreign countries during her seven-month world trip. She also realised what professional path she wanted to pursue once she was back home: LKW WALTER. But even from afar it was easy for the Tyrolean to decide on obvious matters at home as she had been offered a long-term position at the company before her departure.

Michaela started her new job as soon as she returned. "Undoubtedly it was the right decision at that time. Working here has much in common with travelling. You get to know amazing people, experience incredible linguistic and cultural diversity and you never stand still". Her decision also meant that the enthusiastic dulcimer player continues to have time for her music. Her first CD with folk songs from different European countries will be released soon.

"You get to know amazing people and experience incredible linguistic and cultural diversity."

Michaela's personal tip:

If you want to live in your home country Austria and still have an international career, you should definitely apply to LKW WALTER. The cultural and linguistic diversity is unique. And after just a short time, travelling is a part of your daily routine.

Generally professional experience or industry knowledge are not necessary for entry into our operational business.
