The first edition was an immediate success – around 350 students visited the “Campus@Schunk” careers day held in Heuchelheim at the end of November.
The aim was to address students throughout the region, draw their attention to Schunk and introduce the Schunk Group as a technology corporation and potential employer. The approximately 350 visitors were students from the big technical universities of Darmstadt, Karlsruhe and Aachen, as well as from Hamburg and of course also Gießen and Friedberg.
“We were able to conduct many interesting interviews and establish contacts. The visitors were very interested and their feedback was uniformly positive”, says Head of Human Resources Steffen Friedrich summing up the event.
Technology and careers
In the afternoon a supporting program was held, with talks on starting a career, career paths and Schunk technologies. The event was concluded with a panel discussion with participants from Schunk and two professors from Mittelhessen University of Applied Sciences. The students were also able to go on a factory tour, find out about the four divisions of the Schunk Group in an exhibition, talk to human resources managers and have their applications checked.
