Rick likes that.


“I see a secure future as one where I can plan my life so that I have enough time for myself, my personal development and my family. In terms of my career, I’d like a job that is challenging and still highly relevant in 30 years.
Yes, I think I’ve found my dream job.”

Here, responsibility is assumed.

Stefanie is convinced.

“For me, a dream job or as close as you can get to one lets me combine professional and personal goals. Support for the next generation begins in our science-focused kindergarten and continues in our Futurea Science Center, where chemistry is hands-on.

I think a secure future is a company that works responsibly and sustainably.

Maybe there is such a thing as a dream job after all.”

Stefanie not only found her dream job in Saxony-Anhalt, she also found her dream wedding: Congratulations to now Stefanie Mehre.

Working at Mercer is a dream job because there are lots of opportunities to progress. I have enough free time and a secure job that pays well.

I’ve landed my dream job.”

Here the environment encourages excellence.

Christine loves that.

“How did I get here?

It was love. I met my husband in Houston where I was doing a bachelor’s degree in chemistry. He had to go back to Germany and I wanted to go with him. So I ended up here. The region has given me so much over the last few years. It’s a beautiful area with great people. I did my MBA here and then started looking for a challenging job. And I found it.”

My department’s right behind me. We’re a team of young, committed people. I've made a lot of friends.”

Here you’ll find a good work-life balance.

Johannes values that.

“I started at Dow as an apprentice chemical lab technician. Then alongside working shifts, I did a distance learning course at a local university and finished up with a degree in process engineering. Not long ago, I even went to Canada for work. Now I’m responsible for several areas of the plant. The trust that they put in me has really boosted my self-esteem.

Here ideas meet ideals.

Kathrin enjoys that.

“The concentration of companies and research institutes is very special. People don’t imagine that so many important things are happening here in Dessau. During the pandemic, we produced coronavirus vaccines here alongside our normal work. We draw up the dosages of medications. Pharmaceutical and chemical lab technicians can prepare and formulate drugs. And every day is different, every day there’s something new happening!”

Here it’s new and exciting.

Matthias finds this inspiring.

“The equipment is amazing and the working conditions are great. But what I find most inspiring is the flexible, creative approach to developing new solutions. I arrived by a fairly direct route. I did an internship here during my degree, then I got a job as a biotechnologist and now I’m a head of department with people reporting to me. I can go on making progress, because there is a lot of emphasis on the corporate culture here.”
