Schools visit MBO as part of career preparation

In the MBO showroom, the students saw a running folding machine with cobot.
The students were able to find out more about the individual professions from the company’s current trainees.
MBO gave the students a guided tour of the company building in several small groups.

MBO takes the initiative and seeks dialogue with the schools in the region
Companies in almost every industry are feeling the effects of the lack of skilled workers, and MBO Postpress Solutions GmbH from Oppenweiler is no exception. So what could be more logical than to seize the initiative and go in search of well-educated young recruits?

MBO, a mid-sized mechanical engineering company, did just that and approached secondary schools in the region. In mid-November, the 8th years of the Mörike Gemeinschaftsschule Backnang and the 9th year of the Lautereck-Realschule Sulzbach visited the company as part of career preparation lessons, which are a fixed element in the timetable of the higher classes at schools. Following a tour of the company, the students had the opportunity to speak directly to the MBO trainees in a relaxed atmosphere and ask them questions.

MBO currently has 17 trainees who will qualify in one of the six professions offered: electronics engineer for operating technology (f/m/d), IT specialist (f/m/d), industrial business management assistant (f/m/d), industrial mechanic (f/m/d), technical product designer (f/m/d) and technical systems planner (f/m/d). Great value is placed on training these young people across disciplines and teaching them to network with each other. To achieve this aim, among other things, they are assigned complex project tasks which they organise, process and implement themselves.

As an incentive for gaining good marks, MBO offers trainees who successfully complete their training a two-week stay abroad, in the company’s Portuguese production facility near Porto. The company also organises regular trips, and trainees receive subsidies for travel on the VVS public transport network.

Anyone interested in training at MBO can find out more on the website career/young_professionals_germany/__Berufseinsteiger-(Deutschland).html or apply directly to the e-mail address bewerbung@mbo-pps.com.
