What makes zeb special?
Two aspects that make zeb special to me: the principle of “reasoning beats hierarchy” and the given freedom.

What do you like most about your job at zeb? 
Having studied German literature and linguistics, I didn’t originally have a background in business administration. But with the fantastic support of my colleagues at zeb, I have been able to familiarize myself with this field very quickly and can now do exactly what I enjoy, and that is working with texts.

Testimonial_Birgel_Jil_1920x600.jpg

Why did you decide to join zeb directly as an analyst?
My Bachelor’s degree was very theoretical, and I always wanted more practical relevance and career orientation. After my last exam it was immediately clear: first work, then study some more. The Analyst program offers an ideal link-up between a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree as well as education and career.
