Are you looking for opportunities to grow your career in the logistic sector in Germany? Jane Kerl, originally from Kenya, successfully did the apprenticeship programme in logistics (Lagerlogistick) and shared her career path with us.
After training as a teacher in Kenya, I relocated to Thailand to advance my career in teaching. While in Thailand, I found an opportunity to relocate to Germany with the hope of continuing working in the same sector. Unfortunately this was not the case due to the fact that I never had good German skills and it was a big challenge to have foreign qualifications recognised in Germany. After doing several career consultations, I settled for an apprenticeship programme in the logistic sector since I was very interested to understand the ecosystems between Germany and Africa. Even though I faced a lot of challenges as a mother with no sufficient language skills and no mentor to guide me on my career path, I was very determined to join the apprenticeship programme in the logistic sector. I am very happy with the decision that I made and after finishing the training, I secured a job working with Amazon Web Services (AWS) as a Logistics Specialist. Am very passionate to empower women and young girls and I am currently a member of the Kenyan Women In Germany.....K.W.I.G as KWIG's Community Manager and Moderator and Bundesländer Representative for Rheinlandpfalz / Saarland.❤
