"I have a very nice side job and I learn a lot for my Mechanical Engineering studies"

  

In the summer of 2018 my parents and I moved from Almelo to Eindhoven, because my dad started his new job at the DAF purchasing department in January 2018.The move was a huge step for me, since I had to leave my family and friends behind to start a new life.

After all the domestic loose ends were tied up, I started looking for a new weekend job that would fit my studies in mechanical engineering. DAF was of course my first choice. After I had received approval from the weekend team supervisor to work on Sundays and holidays, I started in September 2018. As an operator in the engine factory, my main task is to assemble parts and systems on the assembly line. A super fun side job in which I learn a lot of things which are related to my technical studies!

I enjoy this side job so much that since the beginning of February 2019 I started an internship at the Engine Hardware & Design department. We work with the entire team on further developing and improving parts and systems that are currently in production. In the first week of my internship I was already allowed to hitch a ride on a long run trip through Limburg. How cool is that?

I am extremely grateful to DAF for allowing me to gain experience. I am very happy here in the south. Of course it’s difficult to leave the past behind and to make a new start, but now that I have been living here in Brabant for a while, I never want to leave and I see a further future with DAF!
