Gain international experience, make contacts, and build up a network

Even during their vocational education, the BLANC & FISCHER Training Academy enables young people to think outside the box: learning languages, gaining professional experience in another country, and personal development create an excellent foundation for future professional success.

“Stays abroad last between eight and 12 weeks and are an important component of vocational education — all our trainees and dual program students are given the opportunity to gain experience abroad at the sites of our business groups,” says Gabriele Lintner, Director/Head of Corporate HR Management Germany. It doesn’t matter which BLANC & FISCHER Family Holding business group is involved. Any combination is possible. After all, the BLANC & FISCHER Family Holding business groups are represented at 55 sites in 23 countries.

At the beginning of 2023, three dual program students specializing in industrial engineering at the BLANC & FISCHER Training Academy gained international experience at the various sites of the BLANC & FISCHER Family Holding.

Noah Volz, a dual program student at BLANCO GmbH + Co KG, went to the Steinhausen site in Switzerland, where several business groups work together. He worked in E-commerce for E.G.O.:
“I felt very comfortable from day one as my colleagues were very open and friendly in welcoming me. Even during my first week, I was able to gain insights into the sales structure of the economic area of Europe, the Middle East, and Africa as well as our customer support. For the following three months, I was able to provide support in the E-commerce division and work on my own task packages. I was particularly impressed by the great working atmosphere and the openness across the different departments.”
Maja Zerrer, dual program student at E.G.O. Elektro-Gerätebau GmbH, moved to the E.G.O. site ETA d.o.o. Cerkno, Slovenia:
“The colleagues at ETA gave me a very warm welcome. Even after a short period of time, I felt included in the Variant Development team and could assist with ongoing projects. I also found the people here open-minded and helpful across the departments. During a tour of all the production facilities, I gained interesting insights into the manufacture of the product groups thermostats and hotplates. At weekends, I went hiking along a mountain river and visited an old mine. The snow also enticed me to go snowboarding in the nearby skiing region. This gave me a first impression of what Slovenia has to offer.”
David Korke, dual program student at E.G.O. Elektro-Gerätebau GmbH, was a guest at the E.G.O. Componentes Electrónicos S.A. de C.V. site in Mexico:
“Employees at the Querétaro site welcomed me with great warmth and introduced me to their working culture. In the first week, I received a detailed insight into the electronics production. There, I supported the department in the continual improvement process and worked on the optimization of production lines. I spent my free time doing lots of tours around Querétaro. I visited the cities of Santiago de Querétaro, San Miguel, Bernal, and their sights.”
