Liebherr visited around 250 school students in several secondary schools to answer their individual questions about starting a career. This tailor-made concept gave school students the opportunity to clear up any questions or uncertainties directly with representatives of the company, and get to know about their potential training company before they come for an interview. “We want to make it easy for tomorrow’s young employees to get started in their careers, and we try to help them with highly individual careers advice. Ultimately everyone benefits from this format: we find out first hand what the biggest questions are about starting a career, and the school students benefit from comprehensive careers guidance. So everyone ends up happy,” says commercial training manager Jasmin Fackler from the Kirchdorf site. The school students agree: “It really makes a difference to hear about training from the company itself, and to have actual trainees tell you details about working life,” says school student Florian from the Memmingen Realschule, summing up the visit.
The school students will not have to rely on purely theoretical knowledge about Liebherr, however. Some will visit Liebherr at Bauma – the world’s leading construction machinery fair – in Munich, for an up-close experience of what it is like to work for Liebherr. Alongside numerous activities in the outdoor area, including demonstrations of our latest products, visitors to our own training stand in the ICM Foyer can try out a mini excavator, drive a crane, enter one of many prize draws and consult an interactive careers advisor. A visit to Bauma complements the Ask Liebherr format, giving prospective new trainees a detailed insight into the working life that awaits them.
