The Inside Story on "Frosch" Training
To promote training at "Frosch", the family-run Werner & Mertz of Mainz participated once again this year in the career information fair (BIM Rheinhessen) in the Rheingoldhalle in Mainz. During the two-day fair young people, accompanied by parents and teachers, visited the Werner & Mertz booth to learn about the company's many different training opportunities.
Six trainees and five trainers provided detailed information about the seven jobs requiring vocational training which Werner & Mertz will offer in 2019. They spoke with visitors about training course content, requirements for applicants and trainees' employment prospects. Most young people were eager to talk to the trainees themselves to hear about vocational training from their contemporaries.
The public was drawn to the booth by the appealing join-in activities that the Werner & Mertz trainees had devised especially for the fair. As part of their vocational training, the future electronics technicians, mechatronics technicians and industrial mechanics had developed and constructed a device for live demonstrations at the booth. In a spin-the-wheel quiz commercial trainees asked the young visitors to answer questions about vocational training at Werner & Mertz and rewarded correct answers with a Frosch keychain.
Participation in BIM Rheinhessen has grown into a tradition for Werner & Mertz GmbH. The family-run business in Mainz is among the long-standing exhibitors at the popular fair. "The career info fair is a good opportunity for us to come into contact with young people from the area," said commercial trainer Selina Friedrich. "The visitors benefit from the conversations with our trainees and we learn more about young people's expectations of a training program."
Reinhard Schneider, managing partner of Werner & Mertz GmbH, said, "Thorough training is a good foundation for a successful career. Today the demand for qualified workers is higher than ever. By providing extensive information about our training courses, we want to help young people feel sure about their career choices."
Teens and young adults can apply now for training that begins on 1 August 2019 at Werner & Mertz for the following occupations: warehouse logistics specialists, industrial clerk, industrial mechanics, IT specialists, mechatronics technicians and chemical production specialists. The family-owned and operated manufacturing company will accept 11 trainees for next year's class.
The BIM Rheinhessen is put on by Rheinhessen Chamber of Industry and Commerce, the Rheinhessen Chamber of Trades and mainzplus CITYMARKETING GmbH.
