Internships provide the opportunity to gain on-the-job experience for students, who are looking for a future career in a particular area. Usually, internships can be a compulsory part of a university degree program. Both, the intern and the company benefit from this model: the student gets the opportunity to apply his theoretical knowledge from his studies and gain practical working experience. The company, on the other hand, can establish contact with potential future employees at an early stage.

"I love being part of the automotive evolution."

Elisa, Maintenance Engineer Apprentice, X-FAB France

At X-FAB, we value apprenticeships and internships: we value new-generation engineers who bring new perspectives and are willing to gain experience in our highly diverse work environment.

Elisa is fully integrated into the X-FAB team: aged 19, she joined the company a year ago and is managing her own project to analyse vibrations on specific equipment in order to prevent wafer quality issues. 

 “This is my very first professional experience, and my really open-minded colleagues made it so easy for me to adapt,” Elisa says.

What Elisa likes best about her job is that she has the chance to discover new things every day and to put into practice the theory was taught at school. Elisa got to learn from all her colleagues, who are always available whenever she has a question. But why she has decided to come to X-FAB?

"One day, I went to a car museum in France. Looking at the prodigious evolution of cars through the ages, I said to myself that I wanted to be part of this great adventure, and here I am, working at X-FAB where automotive is part of the company’s DNA!"

I learn from others and always respect those around me, whether it’s in my personal life or at X-FAB.

Elisa is well on track: as a maintenance engineering apprentice, she monitors equipment performance to ensure consistent wafer quality.

What does a healthy work–life balance mean for you? 

The most important for me is to feel at home in my work environment. Diversity is what makes a good team; I learn from others every day and always respect those around me, whether it’s in my personal life or at X-FAB.
