Gunzenhausen/Auerbach/Germany, April 2015. Twenty seven pupils from the Goethe High School in Auerbach, Germany, visited companies in Falkenstein on 15 April as part of a careers guidance initiative.
Web hosting provider and data center operator Hetzner Online together with sun protection, window decoration and insect screen manfacturer erfal GmbH & Co. KG opened their doors to interested pupils providing them with an insight into a variety of apprenticeship schemes and the work of the respective departments.
Opportunities in the technical field for apprenticeship training as IT specialists and company electricians were presented as well as careers in the commercial field such as apprenticeships in Industrial Sales and Office Management.
Participating companies benefit from the change to meet potential apprentices from the area face to face and to encourage interest in vocational training in Vogtland. Joint careers guidance activities are planned between Hetzner Online and erfal for the future.
