They are our latest round of interns at Sulzer, US! We have one intern in project management and two in application development. They are all full-time interns who come from abroad. (Each of them hails from Germany!)
Janina Seluga is our Project Management Intern from Munich, Germany. She began her six-month stint with Sulzer US in August 2017. Janina is a student and had a requirement to complete an internship for her university. Since she was already working for Sulzer GmbH in Germany for the past four years, she learned about the possibility of completing the requirement with Sulzer in the US! Not only did she have a knowledge base of the company, but Janina was also interested is seeing other countries, so she applied! As our Project Management Intern, she is proud of her work and the fact that she is given responsibility for small projects. This is not an internship where you need to be getting coffee or working on a superior’s project! She manages her own projects and is gaining great experience since the scope of her projects are all different. The best advice she’s received while being here is, “Problems are no problem. Think of them as challenges!” Outside of work, Janina likes to run, play tennis, read, cook and travel!
Rafael Muselmann is one of our Application Development Interns. He is from Gaimersheim, Germany. Since September 2017, he has been with Sulzer US working on various projects such as BA Online, a web application used to display a car’s manual, as well as the ChargeForward project alongside another intern, Martin. Like Janina, he is also a student completing his six-month internship requirement. His favorite parts about being at Sulzer US are the friendly colleagues and meeting up with each other outside of work for a game of soccer! When he’s not working, he likes to windsurf and play piano. He’s also a fellow blogger! He writes posts regularly about his time in the US and shares them with his family and friends back in Germany. It’s a great way to keep in touch and share his experiences!
Janina and Rafael took weekend trips to places like Atlantic City, Washington, DC, and Philadelphia!!
Martin Langbecker, our other Application Development Intern, is also here for a six-month internship. He resides in Hamburg, Germany and studies Computer Science in Ilmenau, Germany. He decided to apply for an internship in the US the moment he saw the opportunity! He previously lived in the states and knew he wanted to continue his studies abroad, so he’s back! Since September, Martin has been with Sulzer US working on interesting and relevant e-mobility projects, specifically, ChargeForward. The best advice he’s received so far is, “Transparency, honesty, and communication are keys to a successful project.” Outside of work, Martin likes to go bouldering, reads, and plays guitar. He takes his passion for music even further by organizing living room concerts! He put together more than 20 concerts when he lived in Germany!
Interning in another country is quite the experience and these three have been making the most of it! And while they are only here for a couple more months, we have all enjoyed working with and getting to know our wonderful interns.
We look forward to continuing to provide a learning experience for interns like Janina, Rafael, and Martin, and we value the hard work that they contribute on a daily basis!
