Business Goes Back to School
In 2008 the German Chamber of Commerce and Industry (IHK) founded the “Wirtschaft macht Schule” (Business Goes Back to School) project, designed as a clearing-house for partnerships between schools and businesses to help school-leavers take their first steps into the world of work. These partnerships may take the form of regular offers of school student work experience, reciprocal visits by schools and companies, job application and interview training, or other activities. To bring the world of work to life for the school students taking part in the project and help them choose the right career, Arvato Financial Solutions works with various secondary schools at our Baden-Baden location. After all, we benefit from the project too – by getting to know you at an early stage and being able to encourage your strengths and talents.
