Making the right career choice

25 July 2012

Verallia Deutschland has enabled German students aged 12 to 15 to get a taste of the workplace. Called “You are a talent,” this program has been developed in partnership with schools in the municipalities where the company operates. Students learn about Verallia Deutschland’s activity and visit its various sites. It is an opportunity for them to talk about their dream job and to identify a possible career.

Verallia Deutschland and the partner schools have a shared objective under this program: overcome the shortage of qualified labor in Germany, and introduce young people to potential career paths. The partnership started with schools in Neuburg, Wirges and Bad Wurzach. It will continue for three years and will guide young people until their graduation in a secondary school to provide some of them with certificate-level training.
