Theoretical knowledge and experience gained must also be applicable in practice. We have therefore set ourselves the goal of translating this knowledge and experience into practical action. This includes a consistent accompaniment of our talents from the concrete search for an adequate job offer, the appealing application, the correct handling of personnel managers up to the behaviour during the interview.

Finding the right job

Finding the right job

You just finished school or you’re about to? Then the time has come for you to choose a profession. This decision is very important because it will accompany you all your life. It determines when and how much you work and how much you earn. Therefore, you should not rush but take your time and think about it in peace. In our job-finding seminar we will help you by teaching you everything you need to know. But first, we want to give you a few tips on how you should proceed when choosing a career.

1. take career choice tests

You can find numerous career choice tests on the Internet. It is best to take several of them to get a first orientation. The tests ask about your interests, skills, competences, job requirements and salary expectations. On this basis, they will recommend several professions.

2. collect information

Find out about all professions that interest you. Use books about training and studies, and write down everything important. Collect your information in a folder so that you always have everything at hand. You can also get information about your professions at job fairs where companies present themselves. They take place at regular intervals, especially in larger cities. It is worth going there!

3. ask a friend

Ask friends and relatives about their profession. They provide you with first-hand information. Anyone who has worked in a profession for many years has a lot of experience and can give you lots of tips. Also ask about career opportunities, salary and everyday working life.

4. do an internship

In any case, you should do an internship. In an internship you spend a few weeks or even months in a company. As a rule, you will work in all departments so that you can get a feel for everything. A trial internship of only one week is also possible. For longer internships you will sometimes also receive a salary. An internship gives you an insight into the day-to-day work of a company. You will quickly find out whether the job suits you or not.

5. attend a seminar to get concentrated information

In our seminar you will get compact information about the choice of profession. Together we will develop a strategy for finding your dream job. Experienced instructors will give you tricks and tips on how to best use your talents in the working world.

We have developed three steps to give you the best possible support. In the first step, you can play a human resources manager and create your own job ads. This will give you an insight into the Personaler perspective, which will help you with your own application.

In the second step you will view and evaluate the applications. In this phase you will create your own application.

The third step is the matching. This involves comparing the company’s requirements with the applicant’s qualifications. Here you will find out how application processes work in companies and how you can best prepare for them.

In addition to these three steps, we also explain how to read and interpret job advertisements. We will help you to create correct application documents and give you tips for a successful CV and a gripping cover letter. The seminar teaches you everything that is important for your career choice. 

Companies apply to apprentices – 3 tips for entrepreneurs

Companies apply to apprentices - 3 tips for entrepreneurs

Demographic change also demands its price from entrepreneurs: potential trainees are becoming scarce. This requires companies to rethink. They have to present themselves better and actively approach young people to convince them to train. In this blog article we show you three steps you should take to attract future employees. 

1. offer attractive conditions

Young people today have a choice. They can do an apprenticeship, but they can also study. They often choose the option that seems most attractive to them. And that is often studying with all its freedom and amenities. That’s why companies have to do more to convince young people to take up an apprenticeship. This works by offering them attractive conditions and actively promoting them.

One main argument is the training allowance. This should be reasonably high and should be put forward in the face of studies. After all, students only enter the working world at a later stage, while trainees can look forward to their first salary at a young age. They should emphasize this again and again in discussions with potential applicants.

On the other hand, you should ensure a comfortable workplace and a pleasant working atmosphere. This includes a team that sticks together as well as an attractive working environment. This can be modern office equipment, but also a variety of machines and devices. Point out to your interlocutors that a nice, almost homelike workplace is far better than anonymous lecture halls at mass universities.

Also consider to what extent you can assign trainees to responsible jobs at an early stage. After all, young people don’t just want to do boring routine work, but to do work with sense and responsibility. In the job interview, show where the trainees can develop and contribute to your company.

2. addressing trainees correctly

If you want to win over trainees, you first have to address the pupils and high school graduates. And in the right way. You must reach them in the areas in which they are active. Present yourself at job fairs, take part in job-finding days in schools and advertise in school newspapers.

Use the Social Web by placing advertisements, for example sponsored posts, i.e. paid articles. Place them in media that young people use. Also make use of your company’s location by putting up posters inviting students to take part in training. Produce flyers and info brochures that provide information about your company and contain detailed information about the training.

3. a good self-presentation

In everything you do, you should pay attention to a good self-presentation. This applies to your appearance at a trade fair as well as to the design of a flyer. Make sure that your company presents itself in a uniform, serious and attractive way. Confidently show your strengths and emphasize the advantages of training in your company. Don’t be afraid to play off the advantages of an apprenticeship against a university course. Remember that young people are looking for exciting jobs with an attractive employer, and therefore meet them halfway. Be prepared for the wishes of the young people. If you present yourself as an excellent company, this attitude will also be transferred to potential trainees.

So, to sum up: What is important are attractive conditions for trainees, the right approach to young people and good self-presentation. If you take these tips to heart, you will have a good chance of getting a good start in your “Applying for a job with a trainee”.

A compact coaching on this complex is available in the company seminar “Companies apply to apprentices”, led by graduate business economist Samuel Mulugheta. In three blocks you will learn everything about the above-mentioned points. The experienced course leader will help you in your search for qualified trainees and will work out a branch-specific solution together with you. The seminar comprises 10 teaching units of 45 minutes each. The venue can be the AMATUM Academy or as an in-house seminar on your premises.
