“The coolest thing about my job is the versatility. I deal with people a lot and can be at a customer’s side from their request all the way to assisting them after concluding the contract.” Daniel Jankowsky feels like he is in the right place in real estate asset management. His day-to-day work consists mainly of answering customer requests, creating offers and direct customer support. “Interpersonal and technical understanding as well as numerical knowledge are very important.”

 

“What I enjoy most is how happy people are when I can answer questions in their language.” Diana Mangel is a terminal guide and works in shifts. Her two work areas are the information desk, where she answers passengers’ questions and provides flight information, and the terminal, where she manages passenger flow and supports the fire brigade, police and rescue personnel. “You need good geographical and linguistic knowledge and have to be able to deal well with people.”

 

“I work with many different colleagues for each job and get to know people from different parts of the world.” As security personnel, no day is exactly the same for Jennifer Jany. She checks passengers and their luggage for prohibited substances and objects and ensures that all passengers can board their plane safely and happily. “You receive practical and theoretical training in a 4-week course.”

 

“One of the coolest things about my job is that I can sometimes cruise around in a car between the air planes. It’s always impressive.” Silke Bernögger is responsible for maintenance and operations. She deals with the facilities from commissioning all the way to demolition. “Technical knowledge and a good sense for the requirements are essential.”

 

“The coolest part of my job is that I can freely schedule my time and be a part of projects from start to finish.” Monika Jochymek is a project manager and together with her team is responsible for 40 buildings at Vienna Airport.

“I’m out in front with the air planes, can see the planes from below and enjoy views that others don’t have.” Roman Brunner is in the 4th year of his dual training as systems engineer and machinery and metal construction engineer. The topic of this occupational training is maintenance, repair and trouble shooting for airport systems. “You have to be interested in the job, and you can learn the rest through training.”

 

“When there are troubles with deployment, I have to jump in and help - usually over the phone or computer. Matthias Karl is a web developer and works in the passenger systems division. His job involves teamwork with his colleagues and is project-based. He designs databases, programs and supports operations with software deployments. “English skills are a must. And you have to find a project that interests you.”
 

“The coolest thing about my job is being in the middle of the action.” Martin Prandner works as a ground handler, come rain or shine. His duties include the loading and unloading of various aircraft types.

He works as part of the team in shifts, which means that he sometimes works at night. “Physical fitness and the ability to adjust to the working hours are essential.”

“It is really fun to think in business-simulation terms about how the airport can develop in the future with all its tasks and functions.” As part of Flughafen Wien AG management, Julian Jäger is responsible for a wide range of areas such as management of flight operations, IT and technology, security and all operational tasks.

 

Günther Ofner offers these words of advice for his 14-year old self: “Open your eyes, leave Austria for a while and look beyond your boundaries, and get as much experience as possible.” The daily challenges in his role as management for the Vienna Airport is that “every little thing that happens here at the airport can become an enormous problem for the many people who use this infrastructure.”
