Do you see the trees or the forest?
The term exact education is sometimes misleading. Anyone who knows students of scientific studies knows that among them are sharp people who can carry out complex analyses with great precision. But also apparent scatterbrains who thrive in chaos and can recognize the patterns in it. Both types of people are needed in our R&D department. Many people can’t recognize the trees in the forest. Others can’t see the forest for its trees. We are looking for people for the trees and people for the forest.
So you are the man of precision who can identify and count the trees, who knows how to bring order in complexity, using software that you can make yourself, then we would like to get to know you. Precision is a must. So is having obtained a university degree. Only the masculinity is unimportant.
Or are you the woman with vision who immediately sees the difference between a deciduous and coniferous forest without counting the trees, who can recognize the patterns, using among others software that you can make yourself, then we would like to get to know you. You see through the story behind the facts. You demonstrated that with the completion of a scientific university study programme. Only the femininity is unimportant.
