Portrait Timo van Garling

“I feel prepared for working life.”

As an apprentice, I plan what I’ll learn and what projects I’ll work on. This requires a lot of self-motivation and gives me responsibility and freedom.

Before my apprenticeship at Swisscom, I studied physiotherapy for a year. Then I was pulled in a different direction. When I saw that Swisscom was looking for apprentices, I spontaneously applied. The training model stands out from the crowd. I have worked as a consultant in the Swisscom Shop in Solothurn and in the start-up team in the business customer sector, worked as a recruiting assistant for future apprentices and currently advise customers in the Swisscom Shop in Biel. I’m currently learning French intensively in addition to sales training. I find it easy to talk to people. I play football in my free time. I see many parallels between the playing field and the world of work: in both places, teamwork is the key to success.
