A new twist on career guidance – Training Night attracts young talents

Training new professionals is a high priority at SCHUNK. The company regularly attends a wide range of training events, inspiring young people to join the company. On top of that, SCHUNK also organized its own career guidance event in May 2024: Offered for the first time, the OPEN HOUSE Training Night should give young people a taste of the training and study opportunities on offer and an up-close experience with the company. IT and applied artificial intelligence (AI) are playing an increasingly important role in the future.

SCHUNK – Training Night During the OPEN HOUSE Training Night at SCHUNK, visitors were given their first direct insight into the training and study programs on offer.

2025 is expected to be a record year in terms of training. Therefore, the range of study and training opportunities is to be significantly expanded this year. New trends are also emerging in terms of content: In addition to IT and AI, the focus will be on technical topics such as mechatronics and electrical engineering. The trend is towards dual study options. "We always have our students' personal development goals in mind. This year, for example, we are making it possible for one of our students to transfer to the new "Applied Artificial Intelligence" course at Heilbronn University," reports Andreas Müller, Head of Training at SCHUNK. This approach helps him to ensure that the company keeps its finger on the pulse while having current trends reflected directly in the training program.

Insight into the training center

The first OPEN HOUSE Training Night took place at the SCHUNK training center on May 3, 2024. About 200 guests took advantage of the opportunity well into the late evening. Interested students, parents and other guests were given comprehensive insight into the many opportunities for internships, trainings, or study programs at SCHUNK. A variety of interactive stations and presentations engaged the visitors and provided informative insight into the world of training and studying. The opportunity for direct exchange and the chance to ask questions personally to the apprentices, students and trainers proved especially valuable. It allowed the guests to experience the SCHUNK corporate culture firsthand.
