„It is an interesting, quite diverse field of activity.“
My job at Silhouette
It is not so easy to describe my job. I work in technology, in the industrial engineering department. My main job is to prepare job tickets, that is the work schedule and workflow, as well as maintaining product data and other such things. This results in detailed job instructions for production to manufacture the parts. Preliminary costing is also part of my job. That means that whenever new parts are developed, we have to calculate in advance what the new product will cost. You could say that I am the link between the drawing and the finished product.
A very special side task
In addition to my “normal” tasks, I also give behind-the-scenes tours at Silhouette International. I have an incredibly great deal of contact with all kinds of people. Everyone from NASA engineers to guys from the New York fire department to school classes – you name it! It is really quite diverse and exciting.
The best thing about it
In addition to the daily routine, there is always something new. You grow with the product. I am with a product from the beginning on, I watch it grow, seeing the influences that I have contributed myself.
