Here, our former students and apprentices tell us about their time at INDUSTRIA.
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 October 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 education 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 cooperation. 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 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 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 as a junior fund manager. I am particularly happy about the opportunity to stay in the team and the field of activity in which I focused during the 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.
As I had been interested in real estate since secondary school, I decided to start my career in a company in the real estate industry after my A-levels.
In August 2017, I started my apprenticeship as a Real Estate Agent at INDUSTRIA, as this company covers a broad range of areas in the real estate industry.
From the beginning, I felt very comfortable due to the pleasant working atmosphere and the colleagues are always helpful and friendly. By working independently, I learned the practical and theoretical knowledge that is needed for the everyday work of a real estate agent. Therefore, I found it very positive that I was intensively involved from the beginning.
In June 2019, I successfully completed my apprenticeship and moved to the subsidiary NEUBAUWERTE Vertriebs GmbH. I work there as a Junior Acquisition Manager.
I look forward to the time ahead and am excited about what the future will bring.
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 that I am accepted as an equal member of the team and part of the company and have been able to expand my language 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 made 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 4 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 one of them. This was optimal to generate knowledge in each area in order 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 am particularly interested in the subject. So I was extremely happy when I was able to become part of 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 preparation for the start of your professional career.
As 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 studies 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 later professional life, as the theoretical knowledge gained can be directly applied. This allows a lot of experience to be gained during the training.
With INDUSTRIA, I found the right company to combine with my dual study programme, as many areas of the real estate business are covered. 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 studies, I quickly realised that I particularly enjoy working in purchasing. Today, I am even happier to have found my permanent place there.
Overall, I am very happy to have taken the path of dual study at INDUSTRIA. Within a very short space of time, I felt very comfortable and part of the company due to the positive working atmosphere. I am looking forward to the time ahead of me with ever new challenges.
My name is Mohammad Alokla. I'm originally from Syria and have been living in Germany for about 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 have with great pleasure now successfully completed. Since then, I have experienced the good atmosphere in the company and the respectful cooperation 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 support 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 activities in the Finance department as well as the environment. Therefore, I am very happy to be a part of INDUSTRIA.
