„Die UNIQA ist aus meiner Sicht ein mittelgroßer Versicherungskonzern, aber trotzdem ist die Firma nicht zu groß, damit wir als Einzelne aus einer Abteilung genügend Möglichkeit bekommen, um zu gestalten, wie wir arbeiten wollen.“ Das sagt Chunlang Wang, Leitung Data Management bei UNIQA. „Die wichtigsten Punkte im Berufsleben sind meiner Meinung nach die Kommunikationsfähigkeit, eine gewisse analytische Fähigkeit und eine ganz positive Einstellung der Arbeit gegenüber.“
Drei Ratschläge an Dein 14jähriges Ich!
Be curious and try, first and foremost, to have great knowledge about yourself instead of thinking too much about the world that surrounds you.
Was steht auf Deiner Visitenkarte?
My name is Chunlang Wang my business card reads Team Leader of Data Management and Reporting in the Finance Department at UNIQA Insurance Group.
Was ist das coolste an Deinem Job?
The possibilities to create something. From my point of view, UNIQA is a medium-sized insurance company which has a certain degree of complexity within its group structure and still, the company is not too big which is why we, as members of our departments, have plenty of creative leeway to organise the way we work and how we should work.
Welche Einschränkungen bringt Dein Job mit sich?
Currently, I feel we have a rather high workload since the whole insurance industry is on the brink of a fundamental change which is why we are under pressure, both internally and externally as we have to do more and more tasks in less time.
Worum geht es in Deinem Job?
UNIQA is a middle-sized insurance company in Europe. I work in the Global Finance Department. It is our job to characterise our insurance operations with key figures. that is where a lot of data accumulates these numbers have to be ... absolutely precise and correct. It is my task, or much rather the task of my team, is to organise tasks of data processing across our divisions as efficiently and securely as possible. At present, I am very much involved with one particular project where we implement the new standards for accounting into our new insurance contracts. The accounting of insurance contracts is all about assessing the contracts we have with insurance policy holders in light of new regulations. In order to do that we need a vast amount of data about these contracts moreover, they need to be processed the right way. In this project, my colleagues and I discuss how the whole data processing should proceed how the architecture of our IT needs to be and to make sure that we compile our balance sheet in line with the new regulations in every quarter.
Wie sieht Dein Werdegang aus?
I was born in China and went to school there after that, I came to Germany and studied there physics to be exact. I graduated in Germany and afterwards started at a software firm. It so happened that I did a project at UNIQA where I stayed from this day on.
Ginge es auch ohne Deinem Werdegang?
I believe there is no such thing as an exclusive connection between a particular field of study and professional development. To me, the most important thing about academic training is that one finds out how he or she is learning. I would say that the most crucial points in one's professional career are communicative skills and a certain analytical ability. Moreover, a very positive mindset towards work.
