“I felt warmly welcomed by everyone at Deutsche Börse. My journey kicked off positively thanks to the enjoyable, informative and smooth two-day onboarding, as we learned about the business model and corporate structure of Deutsche Börse Group. With regard to the special circumstances, I felt nevertheless safe thanks to Corona-compliant safety, health and hygienic measures that had been implemented. This way, we were able to meet in person at the office, get to know each other better and network with senior managers throughout the induction days.”

“From day one I knew that joining Deutsche Boerse meant becoming part of an exceptionally dynamic, virtuous and sincere environment. The main take-away for me was to be self-confident. Deutsche Börse wants you to fight for what is worth, fight the right battles, those that can improve the business or work environment. Be persistent and persuasive and always keep in mind your strengths and weaknesses.”
