What is the most exciting thing about your job?
The everyday challenges! As a consultant, I usually deal with a wide variety of topics in which details matter, and zeb places great trust in my ability to independently develop solutions.

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.

Were your expectations of the bachelor welcome program at zeb fulfilled?
My expectations of the program were met completely. During my time as an Analyst, I was able to gain valuable insights into everyday consulting work and knowledge of the banking industry. I was treated as a colleague from the very beginning and was quickly assigned responsibility. These experiences help me considerably during my Master’s studies.

What did your application process look like?
In two different blocks of my job interview, I was first allowed to get to know two colleagues from the recruiting department and then two colleagues from my team. Both interviews were extremely fair at all times: challenging but fair. It wasn't about making me feel insecure, but about finding out in an honest way whether it would be a good idea to work together - for zeb, but also for me!
