On 7 and 8 October 2015, Jobday came around again – the careers event for secondary students at the Kunsthaus Weiz.
The interested young people were able to talk to 42 employers from around the district of Weiz about the professions and work opportunities in their companies. The well-practiced team of Josef Wagner and fourth-year trainee Moritz Kirchpal were there to advise on the opportunities and challenges of working at BT-Anlagenbau.
The main activity on the first day was a parents‘ evening, but the second day was all about the students from grades 8 and 9. Many groups also came from other districts to give their students a full picture of their career prospects in Styria.
Sending an old hand and a young trainee turned out to be highly successful and aroused a lot of interest in BT-Anlagenbau and electrical engineering. Visiting students were able to chat easily to Mr. Kirchpal about his experiences as a trainee; Mr. Wagner was able to relate to parents, with a wider and longer-term perspective.
“It was exciting and a great experience to represent my company at the Jobday and to meet the next generation of trainees“, said Moritz Kirchpal.
After this successful involvement in the event in 2015, we are looking forward to presenting BT-Anlagenbau again this year.
