BFFT helps students with career orientation
How is a company actually structured? What do I want to do after I graduate from school? Many students ask themselves these questions when graduation time is near and BFFT wants to help. So, in order to help students at the Sir William Herschel Middle School in Ingolstadt make these decisions, BFFT invited three eighth grade students to its main building in Gaimersheim near Ingolstadt. BFFT’s modern headquarters are always a popular destination for visitors. Besides politicians and universities, organizations such as the Arbeitskreis Schule & Wirtschaft (The School and Business Working Group) have also been BFFT’s guests.
Felix Schuster, Head of the Marketing and Communication Department, made use of the eighth graders’ career orientation visit to offer them a tour of our “sacred halls.” The first thing on the schedule was a short company presentation to explain to the young people exactly what BFFT does, which occupational groups work with us as a vehicle technology developer and where BFFT is located. The students also learned more about training and what training opportunities BFFT offers. In order to make all of this as practical and interesting as possible, a BFFT trainee was there to help give the presentation. The students were also very interested in the presentation on the Ingolstadt-based electronics specialist’s core competencies, driver assistance systems, digitalization and energy storage systems. The presentation also showed them the exciting tasks which await them at BFFT.
To help the students recall their try-out day when they got home, they were also introduced to the Whatchado career orientation tool, where they can watch various BFFT employees talk about their careers and their current work. The event ended with a question and answer session in which the students were able to actively participate.
We would like to thank all the students of the Sir William Herschel Middle School for their visit.
