Here, our former students and apprentices tell us about their time at INDUSTRIA.
My name is Behzad Fahim, I am 23 years old and come from Afghanistan. I have been living in Nidderau in the Main-Kinzig district since 2016.
After intensive German lessons and a one-month internship at Sparkasse Hanau, I completed an entry-level qualification as a bank clerk at Degussa Bank from October 2017 to July 2019.
After the summer holidays in 2021, I will start my third year of training as a real estate agent at INDUSTRIA.
I am very interested in this line of work and I am glad that INDUSTRIA made it possible for me to continue my training without any major constraints, even during the Corona pandemic. In the school year 2020/2021, the vocational school held lessons in a partly virtual and partly face-to-face format.
During my apprenticeship, I am getting acquainted with all departments and their various tasks. With my commitment and ambition, I hope to finish my apprenticeship next year with a successful exam result.
I am happy to be an apprentice at INDUSTRIA.
I have been working at INDUSTRIA since January 2020. I started as a part-time trainee and was able to gain an initial impression of the company. From March 2020, I worked as a temp at INDUSTRIA, which allowed me to gradually gain more positive impressions of the company.
Because I had never worked in the real estate industry, I was a little worried at first that I wouldn't be able to find my way around. My fears were soon allayed. The understanding and supportiveness of the entire staff was extremely helpful; I felt I was good hands right from the start.
Thanks to the variety of tasks that I received from my colleagues, I was able to expand my knowledge of the real estate industry in a very short time and gain a lot of experience.
Due to the great atmosphere and the help and patience of my colleagues, I soon realised after my first few weeks at the company that I would like to train as a real estate agent. This wish was made possible for me here.
I feel extremely at ease at INDUSTRIA and am grateful for the amazing opportunity to successfully complete my training here and to contribute to the company's success.Read less
I feel it is important to experience things in practice rather than just relying on theory. That’s why I knew I would go on to do a dual study course when I obtained my Abitur (higher education entrance qualification). In my view, the main advantage of the dual study programme is the opportunity to internalise and actively use what you have learned. You are part of the world of work from day one and do not need to worry about the much-feared shock of entering professional life at the end of your studies.
I am interested in real estate. It is a future-proof, incredibly varied and innovative topic. I found INDUSTRIA through my own research and was quickly convinced by the corporate philosophy, the professional concept and the company’s many years of market experience. It is a great place to get to grips with various aspects of the real estate sector.
I successfully completed my dual study course in September 2022 and am now part of INDUSTRIA’s Fund Management team. The experiences I gained from the practical phases reinforced what I learned in the theoretical part, and I am ready for new challenges.
I am looking forward to my future at INDUSTRIA.Read less
I have now been working at INDUSTRIA for over eight years. In November 2014, I successfully applied for a place on the dual study programme starting inOctober 2015.
I was very grateful to be offered a temporary job from January to October 2015. This gave me the chance to get to know the company nine months before the start of the dual study programme.
I really wanted to do a dual study programme, because in my view this is the optimal way to combine a university degree in Business Administration with a practical job in a company. In addition, the real estate business is very diverse, which means there are numerous interesting areas of activity.
INDUSTRIA is a company that covers many areas of the real estate business and is very prominent in the fund business. I find the working atmosphere particularly positive and motivating. Despite having over 100 employees, I see INDUSTRIA as a family company that places value on harmonious and respectful collaboration. At INDUSTRIA, you are not seen as a "functioning machine" as seems to be ever more the case in today's success-oriented working world but rather as an individual who contributes to the success of the team through knowledge, commitment and personality.
In general, you should of course enjoy working in real estate. Personal contact with other people and good communication skills are particularly important in this industry. In addition, a certain interest in numbers and IT-related topics is helpful. Especially for INDUSTRIA, it is an advantage if you enjoy working in a team and appreciate a good relationship with your colleagues and superiors.
I have successfully completed the dual study programme and now actively support the portfolio management team as a junior fund manager. I am especially thrilled that I was given the opportunity to remain part of the team and in the field of activity that was the focus of my practical training.
Nowadays, it is not easy to find a company where you feel comfortable, are positively accepted as part of the team and also have good prospects for the future. I am more than happy with my choice and would not hesitate in choosing INDUSTRIA again.
I have been with INDUSTRIA since August 2017. I first got to know the company through an internship and then started my training as a real estate agent in 2018.
I am originally from Afghanistan, where I attended secondary school and subsequently studied psychology. Parallel to my evening studies, I worked for four years at the Ministry of Defence in Afghanistan until I moved to Germany.
Ever since my first day at INDUSTRIA, I have felt like an equal member of the team and part of the company, and have been able to expand my language skills and technical knowledge in the real estate business on a daily basis thanks to INDUSTRIA's supportive working atmosphere. Among other things, the company supports me with targeted German lessons and technical terminology for the real estate business, so that my training as a real estate agent at INDUSTRIA is easier for me. Above all, I really like the diversity of my training and the collegial atmosphere at INDUSTRIA. You can expand your knowledge on a daily basis and have the opportunity to get to know the many facets of the real estate industry. This is done in a spirit of partnership, characterised by mutual support, constructive work and mutual respect.
This year, I successfully completed my training, was given a full-time contract and am looking forward to working with the INDUSTRIA team.
I have been working at INDUSTRIA for more than 5 years now. I successfully completed my studies at the Cooperative State University in Mannheim at the beginning of October 2021.
The opportunity to take the dual path in my studies is the optimal choice for my future career. It allows you to combine practical and theoretical knowledge from an early stage.
At INDUSTRIA, I had the opportunity to get to know many areas of the real estate business. As a student, you are directly involved in the processes and take part in the day-to-day business and are treated as an equal member of the team. This was perfect for gathering insights into each area to then be able to decide which direction to take after graduating.
I now work in Transaction Management at INDUSTRIA. Even during my studies, I realised that this is where I have the most fun and have the most interest in as a subject. So, I was extremely happy to hear that I was able to join the Transaction Team.
Looking back, I am very proud to have chosen the dual study programme at the Cooperative State University in Mannheim and INDUSTRIA. Personally, I can recommend completing a dual study programme to everyone. In addition to the work experience, you also get to meet interesting people through networking at the university and in the company. All in all, it's a great way to prepare for the start of your professional career.
As a Transaction Manager, I am now looking forward to my upcoming tasks and am proud to be part of the INDUSTRIA team.
I have been working at INDUSTRIA since September 2017. I successfully completed my dual study programme in real estate management at the Duale Hochschule in Mannheim and at INDUSTRIA in September 2020.
In my opinion, a dual study programme is an optimal choice for your future professional trajectory, as the theoretical knowledge gained can be directly applied. This allows a lot of experience to be gained whilst training.
With INDUSTRIA, I found the right company to combine with my dual study programme, as the company covers many areas of the real estate business. This gave me a broad insight into the individual areas of the real estate industry. In addition, at INDUSTRIA you are intensively involved in individual processes right from the start, something I find very positive.
I now work in Portfolio Management in acquisitions. Even in the early days of my dual study programme, I quickly realised that I particularly enjoy working in acquisitions. Today, I am even happier to have found my permanent place in this field.
Overall, I am extremely happy I went down the path of a dual study programme at INDUSTRIA. Within a very short space of time, I felt very at ease and like I was part of the company thanks to the pleasant working atmosphere. I am looking forward to all the new challenges that the future has in store for me.
My name is Mohammad Alokla. I'm originally from Syria and have been living in Germany for more than six years. I previously worked as a chemical laboratory technician in Damascus.
I had the privilege to get to know INDUSTRIA during a one-year internship. I then started my training at INDUSTRIA, which I am pleased to say that I have now successfully completed. Since then, I have enjoyed the positive atmosphere at the company and the respectful working culture with my colleagues.
During the first two years of my apprenticeship, I was able to learn a lot and further develop my language skills. I owe this above all to my committed work colleagues who supported me in my tasks. I really enjoy working with the team.
I am very happy that I have been employed on a full-time basis at INDUSTRIA since June 2019, and I enjoy my work in the Finance department and the working environment I am in. I am therefore thrilled to be a part of INDUSTRIA.
