Training also starts today at four companies forming part of Volkswagen:
10 apprentices in seven vocations have joined Sitech Sitztechnik, including one student each on the dual courses in mechanical engineering, automotive engineering and business administration. Volkswagen Immobilien has recruited a total of three real estate clerks, one of whom is studying for a Bachelor of Arts Real Estate, while Volkswagen R has two apprentices and a student of business administration. Volkswagen Financial Services has recruited 44 new entrants in two vocations and four courses of studies.
Statements from two apprentices and students:
Merle Jordan (18) from Triefenstein, dual course of studies in automotive mechatronics and computer science combined with an apprenticeship as a motor vehicle mechatronics technician:
“As a child, I was always interested in technology. I enjoyed playing with remote controlled cars, Carrera racing tracks, Lego and construction sets. I think that Volkswagen as a global group will offer a wide variety of possibilities for personal and vocational development. I am especially interested in future-oriented topics such as e-mobility, alternative drive systems, autonomous driving and the networking of vehicles.”
Lena Hilbl, (19) from Helmstedt, training vocation: vehicle paint technician:
“About three years ago I went to an open day at the Volkswagen plant in Wolfsburg to take a look at the various training vocations. As I walked through the paint shop and saw the brightly colored bonnets, I was sure that I wanted to work here later. I could well imagine developing special or customized paints for Volkswagen. At any rate, I would like to qualify as a vehicle paint technician and to take advantage of the opportunities offered by Volkswagen.”
