The 29-year-old started out as a trainee repairing buses for the city of Lübeck’s public transport system. She then went on to study automotive engineering for several semesters in Dresden before moving to the production line at the Transparent Factory, after which she took leave in order to qualify as an industrial foreman. After her return to Volkswagen, she was stationed at the pilot halls in Dresden, Wolfsburg, and Zwickau – until the company started seeking employees to support the launch in Bratislava, which is currently still the case. Mid-2016, Sarah Lüttjohann decided, “I’ll rock it!”
Global Assignments created the deployment contract, organized the move and a new apartment, as well as intercultural training and a language course – and the young woman was ready to start her adventure abroad.
