Towards a secured future
Only those who can fall back on solid basic professional knowledge and sufficient experience have a good chance of securing a successful future.
With its long tradition of apprenticeship, Festo helps to ensure that young school leavers receive high-quality vocational apprenticeship. Personal mentoring by experienced educators is a crucial element of our corporate philosophy.
The dream job: desires and reality
Once a student leaves school, the choice of profession is often no simple matter. Festo offers support In this phase of orientation: with short-term placements, information brochures and discussions with apprentices and trainers, we give young people the opportunity to get to know various vocational fields, so that they can find out whether their dream job is in keeping with their own skills and ideas in everyday practice.
The application process
In a three-stage selection process, it is determined whether a candidate is suited to Festo. We are not concerned here with finding the best applicants, but the right ones. The first step is the application: a candidate’s documents must convince us. To meet this challenge, we organise special job application apprenticeship sessions in schools, in which valuable hints are given. Once this first hurdle is cleared, we invite the chosen candidates to a written aptitude test in which we assess to what extent their capabilities match our requirements. If this proves successful, the candidates are invited to group and individual interviews. A apprenticeship contract is then negotiated.
Parents and Festo
We work in close cooperation with the parents of our apprentices throughout the apprenticeship period. At regular parent-teacher meetings, we inform you of important processes and give you the opportunity to ask questions. After all, Festo sets out to provide comprehensive, high-quality apprenticeship on a basis of trust and with the cooperation of parents and educators.
