Leandro Ceriani (18)
IT trainee in the fourth year of training, currently in Security Service Delivery, Zurich
"Even as a small boy I was fascinated by technology. Deep down I knew that one day I would work in IT. I learned about the profession at trade fairs, information events and online. I came across UBS on the yousty.ch apprenticeship portal.
It was clear to me that I wanted to do my apprenticeship in a large firm, that I didn’t want to be the only IT trainee. My father recommended I apply for an IT apprenticeship with UBS and he was entirely right.
What I especially like here is that although IT is global, there are certain regional differences, which makes this area very interesting. And I think it’s great that I can speak a lot of English here, was integrated into the team quickly and can work productively.
My next goal is to successfully complete vocational school, get a permanent position at UBS, get my mandatory military service behind me and then possibly attend a university of applied sciences."
