Melike Lachenmann, member of the German graduate rotation program

My name is melieke. I'm a new graduate student from Germany.

The graduate rotation program has been in operation for 40 years, but 2015 is the first year for Danfoss Germany to start employing graduate students. There are five people in our group, three of them are sales and marketing, one is finance, and I am supply chain. The plan lasts for two years and consists of four six-month projects. The first and last project I will participate in will be in new Minster, Germany, while the second project will be in Arkansas, USA.

Our projects started on September 1, at the same time in Offenbach, near Frankfurt, Germany, and in new Minster, north of Hamburg. My project is located in new Minster, which is the manufacturing factory of hydraulic motor and pump. In the current projects, I am responsible for writing service level agreements for customers. The main content is the latest development of all related supply chain topics, such as delivery time, Danfoss packaging and marking standards, etc. My other task is to write a new KPI report to measure the accuracy of customer forecast.

Even though I have been involved in the project for a very short time, I have learned a lot, not only about the supply chain, but also about the relationship between the supply chain and the company's strategy, as well as the importance of the supply chain. I'm very excited about the next project I'm going to participate in. I'll meet my American colleagues and I'm sure I'll learn a lot from them.

Hello, my name is Yue Luo. It's the fourth month for me to participate in the Danfoss graduate rotation training program. I'm very glad to share my gains with you.

This year, Danfoss has recruited more than 20 members of the graduate rotation training program in many countries / regions around the world, including Germany, Denmark, India, the United States, etc. I am the only member of the program in China. However, although I am the only one, I am not alone. After participating in the program for one month, Danfoss arranged a PGP novice training camp in Denmark. Through this activity, we deepened mutual understanding, also understood the company's values and culture, and even spent an afternoon in an amusement park together! Through participating in Pgp, we have contacted many members of Danfoss PGP. Most of them have very rich experience and are very willing to help. Take Danfoss's CFO, who used to be a PGP member!

For me, the biggest benefit of the program is not only the ability to build interpersonal relationships with members from different countries, but also the ability to go abroad and participate in many practical projects. At present, I am working with my tutor on my first project in Shanghai, and the next project will be in Germany and Denmark. I am very excited to get this opportunity because I have never been to these places. As a member of Pgp, you will have the opportunity to contact with foreign cultures and understand the way people think and behave in other countries. For me, this is not only a great challenge, but also a great opportunity. I think I can definitely learn a lot from this unique experience.

Martin Lindberg Kristensen, member of the Danish graduate rotation program

I'm Martin, and I'm honored to be one of the five members of the 2015 Danfoss Danish graduate rotation program. Over the next two years, I will be involved in four different projects at four Danfoss plants around the world. At present, I am working on my first six-month project in vaelle, Denmark. My team is the global marketing team. In this team, I am mainly responsible for the release of new products, and also participate in many projects related to business development and market research.

Being a member of the Danfoss graduate rotation program means being exposed to many new tasks and facing many challenges from the beginning. I feel very honored to have the opportunity to work with so many excellent colleagues in the industry; of course, I will learn as much as possible.

For me, one of the biggest advantages of participating in the graduate rotation training program is flexibility. We can choose and control our own interesting and challenging projects according to our learning plan. Personally, it means that I can constantly challenge myself in different areas of sales and marketing.

I'm looking forward to the next two years in Danfoss. The pace of learning here is very fast, colleagues are also very enthusiastic, we are also involved in some global projects, very challenging! I think this is the best starting point for my career!
