“I never thought I’d get the chance to work in Silicon Valley. With the three-month abroad assignment for the Audi Global Graduate Program, I can now fulfill this dream.”

A big step toward your dream job

Alrisyadani Rafles loves programming. Alrisyadani came to Germany on a scholarship to study mechatronics, IT and robotics. Now, with the Audi Global Graduate Program, he’s taking the next step toward his dream job in the field of machine learning and data analytics.

And it will be a big one, because Alrisyadani will be working in Silicon Valley during his three-month abroad assignment for the Audi Global Graduate Program. “It’s an absolute dream. I’ve always wanted to go to Silicon Valley,” he said. “I never thought I’d get the chance.” There, he’ll work on data that cars exchange with each other or with traffic infrastructure.

Before his stay in the US, Alrisyadani was in Ingolstadt, where he supervised a sustainability project in the field of upcycling with young people. Together with his team of trainees, he developed a concept for a sustainability initiative. Its goal was for young people to make art out of materials that can neither be recycled nor used in car manufacturing.

Those who experience so much should remain flexible and be prepared to take on new challenges. “I need to get out of my comfort zone. That’s important not only on a professional level, but also on a personal one,” Alrisyadani said. “The best chance to do that is in the Audi Global Graduate Program.”

“The Audi Global Graduate Program is perfect for anyone who wants to try things out after graduation. As trainees, we can get familiarized with a variety of fields and work methods. I find this change in perspectives very enriching.”

Diverse insights: Yangling's experiences at the Audi Global Graduate Program

“I’m fascinated by the various departments that I’ve already gotten to know and how diverse the people who work there are,” said Yangling Tong. During the Audi Global Graduate Program, she got an impression of global communications and the Technical Development division, where she worked on her favorite topics of data analytics and artificial intelligence. The business informatics graduate wants to find out what Generation Z – which she also belongs to – demands with regard to the car of the future in China. What does Gen Z represent? What trends are important to them? To that end, she uses algorithms and data analytics to do a lot of research on social media – especially Douyin, as TikTok is called in China.

The community of trainees and alumni is a huge support for Yangling. “We regularly meet up once a month, and we also take the opportunity to have fireside chats with members of the board and top managers,” Yangling said. “Everyone is very open, creative and unbiased.”

In the Audi Global Graduate Program, Yangling attended a journalism school and learned a lot about data journalism and how to communicate to target groups. She also worked in production, the cafeteria and vehicle delivery. “In the three months we spend in a department, we can’t delve too deep into a topic, but we get a really good overview,” Yangling concluded.
