How your assignments could look like? For example like this:
I was born and raised in Nigeria. After my bachelor’s degree in Akure, Nigeria, I obtained a master’s degree at the prestigious Technical University of Munich, Germany.
The SGP program stood out for me because it is a wonderful training ground for leadership, learning, and networking. I have been able to meet so many wonderful people, while learning much more than I anticipated.
In my first assignment, my task was to create a Business Intelligence pipeline to understand the market and competition for a new Siemens business area. This required strategic thinking, strong communication skills, and the ability to create well-considered content. It was very exciting to know that I was part of a team working on future technology. Besides my assignment, I really enjoy participating in and organizing events for SGP participants.

What to expect from our application process?At the SGP program office, we believe in a thorough and holistic assessment – for us but also for you. This is an important step in your career and we want to give you ample opportunity to understand if the program is the right choice for you. We on the other hand want to get to know you, your personality, experience and capabilities. The process contains three major steps – they do vary slightly in the different SGP countries but they all follow the same flow and logic.
The Siemens Graduate Program gives you the chance to make an excellent start to your career with a wide range of prospects through various assignments in your home country and abroad, comprehensive trainings and mentoring. A key advantage of the program is that it is tailored to to your strengths and skills as well as to the needs of the respective company. Immediately after the SGP, you will take on your first challenging position. However, your individual career path always depends on your own initiative as well as your motivational strength.
In general, at least one assignment abroad is planned. Being a global company, the assignment abroad will prepare you for an important aspect of our culture. We will support you in selecting the best destination for your assignment abroad so you can get the most out of it. We try to ensure this also during the pandemic, but of course we need to adapt to the current requirements and the international travel restrictions.
If the SGP is not available in your selected country, or if there are no open positions, it is possible to apply in other countries. Please check the country requirements above and please note, you should only apply in a different country if this meets your career aspirations and you can get work authorization. You can also view your local careers page for other development programs or entry-level opportunities.
You’ll directly work within our divisions and experience different areas, such as product development and distribution, product management and marketing, manufacturing, project management or procurement and logistics. Ultimately these are decided by your interests and qualifications as well as our business requirements.
This greatly depends on your performance and interests during the program. You’ll discuss this with your mentor throughout and they will support you in your transition once the program comes to an end. You may be offered a position in your home country or abroad based on availability. We’ll support you in either an expert career, management career or project management career.
