Vocation Information Day 2018
The Hohenlohe Industrial Park hosted its annual Vocation Information Day on 21 March 2018. Together with STAHL CraneSystems, other businesses from the region opened their doors to inform youths and other interested people about training opportunities in their companies.
Every year STAHL CraneSystems offers young people apprenticeships and degree courses in the fields of electronics, mechanical engineering and technology at its headquarters in Künzelsau. The Hohenlohe Industrial Park’s Vocation Information Day gives potential candidates an optimal opportunity to find out more about what is on offer. Like other companies, STAHL CraneSystems presented itself with an information booth in the factory hall at R. STAHL AG. These other companies included Würth Elektronik eiSos, SWG Schraubenwerk Gaisbach, GEMÜ, LIDL and Ziehl-Abegg. Organised in this way, the information on offer was kept clear.
The two information booths of STAHL CraneSystems in the factory hall and company restaurant were staffed by personnel competent in every question: What apprenticeships does STAHL CraneSystems offer? What do I learn during a technical apprenticeship? And do I have the possibility to educate myself further right from the start? Current apprentices reported about their experiences and described their everyday working lives. The training workshop of R. STAHL AG, which is also used by STAHL CraneSystems, gave visitors an insight into the many different practical activities in the various vocations. From the smallest gear wheel to metre-long cable drum, STAHL CraneSystems manufactures every single part itself in its Künzelsau plant. The company has always had a keen interest in training motivated young people to ensure it has a reliable supply of competent talent. The vocational schools in Künzelsau and Öhringen as well as the Künzelsau campus of the Heilbronn University also present booths at the Vocation Information Day every year to inform visitors about the theoretical aspects of their training.
“BIT 2018 was once again a resounding success with many good and stimulating talks,” says Timo Pfeiffer, master instructor at STAHL CraneSystems. With about 450 visitors to R. STAHL AG, he can look back on a successful day.
