"I'm fascinated by the responsibility I share working for large companies."

Philipp Z., Division Manager at LKW WALTER

Philipp Z.

Originally, Philipp had no particular interest in logistics. He just wanted to gain some initial professional experience. And so, during his time at the commerical academy in Wörgl, he applied for an internship at LKW WALTER. With an unexpected result.

Because during his internship, Philipp quickly realised that the job at LKW WALTER was more than just logistics. This was mainly due to the fact that he was in the middle of the action right from the start. "My colleagues and I made sure that the just-in-time supply chain for a well-known Italian car manufacturer was working without a hitch and that their belts kept running."

After his internship, basketball fan Philipp immediately scored a three-pointer and agreed on a permanent position, which he took up a week after his A-levels. "I'm simply fascinated by the responsibility I have as a transport manager for large companies, among others. That's just exciting."

Currently, Philipp is climbing another rung on his career ladder by learning to speak Polish.

Note: Philipp was Transport Manager at the time of the interview. He was appointed Division Manager in December 2021. Congratulations on this career move!

"You should never underestimate yourself, you need to trust in your own abilities."

Philipp's personal tip:

You have to believe in yourself. Especially when it comes to a job application, it's important that you have confidence in yourself and in your abilities. Even if you're not very sure of yourself yet. To give you an example, I used to be intimidated by phone calls in a foreign language, but today that just makes me laugh!
