Define Your Journey
I am only in my second project now, but I have already got to know different ways of working. It can be a challenge to absorb all of this, but it's also fun.
Especially when it comes to finding my own style. IGP is the best way to meet colleagues and managers from different divisions and to build my own network. What is your personal advice to other applicants for this programme?
Look at the programme as a booster for your personal and professional development, not just as a pure career driver! My personal highlight of the IGP is that it provides exceptional opportunities for shaping my own future within innogy SE. I can very easily explain my personal highlight by using the three terms that make up the name of the international graduate programme:.
The IGP provides me with an excellent opportunity for meeting people from all over Europe and working with them, living abroad for a while and in this way building a personal, international network within innogy SE. This allows me also to gain a better understanding of different perspectives on energy industry topics as well as for cultural differences within innogy SE. As an IGP participant I have the fantastic opportunity to learn plenty of new things every day and to gain a wealth of experience.
Also, I am always given opportunities to contribute my own ideas. In addition, I can decide myself in which department I will take up my next project, enabling me to individually develop my personal and professional skills. For me personally, IGP is a unique programme: Furthermore, seminars and feedback days supplement the project tasks and help me expand my horizon.

The IGP is a multi-disciplinary graduate trainee programme. It is targeted at highly motivated third-level graduates with above-average exam results and some initial practical experience.
As a rule, each graduate trainee is responsible for driving forward their own projects. In exceptional cases, two graduate trainees may sometimes work on the same project.
However, between projects all participants meet on the feedback days and at complementary training courses in Essen. At the IGP, self-initiative is the key.
We will organise the first project phase for you so that you can familiarise yourself with the programme. All other projects will take shape independently at innogy, with active personal support from your mentor. Each project lasts about three months and is self-contained. You alone are responsible for your project. You determine how it will progress and come to successful completion.
To make sure this happens, we talk to you about your goals in advance and document them in a target agreement. At the end of the project, we carry out an evaluation together with you.
