Fresh start @ TMC
25-year-old Joris De Meulenaere started his first TMC assignment after his graduation in Industrial Science Mechatronics. Having been offered multiple career opportunities, he decided to work for TMC Field Service. “I had several offers from job agencies for a job at ASML. I picked TMC because of its professionalism and the way its supports Employeneurs in their career”, Joris explains.
In June 2013, Joris became a System Install Engineer. "In my job I install and calibrate complex machines in accordance to the customer’s specifications. I learn a lot about the technology, because it is part of my job to become familiar with the many aspects of these machines. If there is a malfunction I have to think logically and puzzle: this is the moment when my job gets at its most interesting”, Joris points out.
Another challenging part is travelling. "Last year I did my first install in Seoul. An experienced ASML employee travelled with me and taught me how to do the install and make a report. He shared tons of experience with me. When abroad, it is my own responsibility to arrange TMC's support for me. I was quickly forced to work independently. It was reassuring to know TMC backed me up 24/7”.
Just recently Joris started his second install; now in the United States of America. “I still have to gain a lot of experience in my field of expertise and I haven't set my goals yet. A TMC coach helps me to discover what my talents really are, so I can set my goals for the future.”
