From German Army into the free economy - get the re-entry with blu

My name is Stephan Schultejann. I have been part of the blu family since February 2015 and appreciate each day that I found in blu Systems an employer who is willing to keep the bigger picture in view and give talented people from a variety of backgrounds the chance to re-enter the labour market.

As my experiences are not commonplace, I would like to share my personal story with you in the hope that I can encourage other people finding it difficult to search for new challenges.

By joining the German Army, I had a career, a long-term career, all planned out. First an IT degree, then working in transport aviation in the German Air Force. Unfortunately, an unexpected and serious illness put an end to my well-laid-out plans. After fully recovering, it was no longer possible to re-enter the German Army.

From one day to the next, I had the feeling of starting from scratch. I had to reorient myself and try and find a new career in the private sector.

With my solid foundation in IT, thanks my degree and my first technical deployments in the Germany Army, it quickly become apparent that I should develop this area professionally - especially as it is an area that I have always found very enjoyable. However, I had to overcome two challenges. On the one hand, I had had a two-year break in my CV due to illness that is often not well received by HR departments or easy to explain. On the other hand, the German employment agency only had limited funds at its disposal to be used on training that could update my expertise and thus increase my chances on the job market.

Under these circumstances, I knew it would be difficult to find an employer willing to invest me.

Luckily there are still companies like blu with its corporate philosophy.  After a great and uncomplicated interview, they offered me an internship to give me the chance to gain an insight into the profession. It gave us both the opportunity to get to know each other and see if the chemistry was right.

And what can I say? It was right. After brief period, I was offered a permanent contract and have been an integral part of blu Systems since June 2015.  As an IT administrator, I am responsible for all technical matters within the company on the one hand. On the other hand, I am currently part of an exciting project at a leading car manufacturer, which has given me the opportunity to expand my IT know-how with SAP knowledge.

I never would have expected such a positive working atmosphere at blu. I work in a great, motivated team that has welcomed me with open arms and integrated me straightaway.

I couldn’t have dreamt of a better re-entry into the labour market. Thus, I can only stress the blu motto at this point. Ethical conduct and success are not mutually exclusive. blu does both!
