Hello everyone!

The next application round just started and if you are reading this, you are probably thinking about giving it a try. Go ahead!

My name is Samuel. I was selected for the last Proteam generation and started in April. I feel honored and very lucky to be here, and I would like to share some thoughts on the application and the first months aboard Lufthansa.

I’m writing this from my desk in a Lufthansa Cargo building at the Frankfurt Airport. Never heard from Lufthansa Cargo before? Well, neither did I before Proteam! One of the first surprises here was to realize how immense the Deutsche Lufthansa AG is and in how many different areas do they work. My contact with the business world so far had been very limited. My background is physics and neuroscience. So why did I apply here? Because Proteam promised to teach me things that I would not find elsewhere.

I remember the assessment center quite clearly. It was my first one. I arrived the night before, slept ok (kept waking up each 10 minutes during the night – is it the time already??) and then went into the danger zone the next morning. My mental check-list: relax, take a deep breath, teach them what you’ve got, you can do it!

Actually, the day was amazing. We were warmly and personally welcomed, the atmosphere was exciting, the other applicants were all very talented and funny… And I learnt a lot! I never really liked the idea behind assessment centers, but in this one I really learnt something. The exercises were fun and ingenious, and in an abstract way they showed how work could be in the future.

If you are looking for some advice on the assessment, I will tell you the following: Enjoy it. It will be fun. It will be challenging, too. It is an opportunity to learn, watch, observe, even try things out that you never did before. Don’t spend too much time thinking about how you are performing. It’s impossible to control all the variables leading to your admittance, so just go all in with an open spirit and make the best of whatever happens. That seems to work fine for everything else in life, too (:

What comes next? A deep dive into the Lufthansa world. A lot of information. A lot of excitement, open doors and opportunities everywhere, lots of excitement – and surprise, surprise… Expectations too! In the beginning I was a bit overwhelmed. (Really? Did I really make it into Proteam? Wow! I hope I don’t disappoint anyone now! ) That’s just part of the game, too, and will fade away with time. As you see, we Proteams are human, too.

 

Happy Proteamers in Zürich

Before you realize it, you will be moving into your first project. And if you came from outer space like me, everything will be new. Take your time, talk soon with your supervisor about your expectations and the concrete project goals and steps. Learn.  And enjoy (: We will be here if you need any help!
So take a deep breath and go for it! Best of luck!

  1. Hello Samuel!

    Cool post first of all. Im applying for the programm and well, Im filling out my studies and personal data. Then theres a part for uploading the video(once you make an online test). My question are:
    1. In the education part, what about exchange semsters? How can they be written?
    2. After submitting my personal data and education
    , do I get an automatic link for the online test ?
    3 If i understood correctly: the video is uploaded after the test. Correct?

    Thanks in advance!

      Buenas, Jose Alejandro!

      I’m very happy that you liked the post! And I wish you the bestest of luck in the application.

      However, I fear that I can’t help you with the technical questions. Many people have sent me similar ones. The problem is that I am not in the recruiting team nor have access to the system. Please use the contact forms in the application page (should be on the bottom left). I will let the team know that many questions are arriving.

      Saludos!

      Hello again, Francisca!

      Have you tried https://www.be-lufthansa.com/en/contact/ ? It’s the small “contact” link on the bottom left in the be-lufthansa.com pages. Please bear in mind that I’m not part of the recruiting team, so I can’t give you technical advice on the application!

      All the best,
      Samuel

      Hey Philip,

      an apprenticeship in the Cockpit would be the greatest experience! However, regulations are very strict, I don’t think we can offer one. Nevertheless, take a look at our page for pupils and School graduates and see if you find anything interesting. If you have further questions to that topic, you will find a contact link over there. Cheers to your nephew!

  5. Hi,

    Samuel.

    I am applying for the Proteam, i would like to know about the application deadline.

    The information they gave in the pro team program, Once they received 400 application, they will close the pro team process.

    I am fashionate about Airlines. I want to be in part of pro team and i want to give my best, i am making video and working for that, yet i need one week time to upload my video.

    I am bit scared about the information they given, In case, if they close the process is there any other way to apply and to upload the video.

    Thank you Samuel.

    Francisca.

      Hello Francisca!

      I wish you the best in the application process! Since I am not in the selection team, I can’t really tell you anything beyond what’s written in the Website. I imagine that you will have no problems uploading your video once you make it – just try it! If everything else fails, next year there will be a new application round.
