Mannheim, November 4, 2021
The virtual booths of the digital apprenticeship fair of the Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK) informs high-school students about various professions for which apprenticeships are offered. Caterpillar Energy Solutions also has a virtual booth at the digital apprenticeship fair for the Rhine-Neckar area. Apart from conventional apprenticeships in mechatronics, industrial mechanics, business administration, and warehousing, Caterpillar Energy Solutions also offers integrated degree programs in the fields of business engineering, integrated engineering, mechanical engineering, and electrical engineering.
In an interview, Daniele Weidenauer, contact for administrative apprentices and students on integrated degree programs at Caterpillar Energy Solutions, and Jörg Wolf, contact for industrial apprentices at Caterpillar Energy Solutions, provide information and tips to those who would like to embark on their career with Caterpillar Energy Solutions.
Why is an apprenticeship at Caterpillar Energy Solutions so attractive for school graduates?
An apprenticeship at Caterpillar Energy Solutions is highly individualized in all professions offered. This means: small learning groups, intensive coaching, and individual assistance. The company features state-of-the-art equipment and a modern working environment. Thus, the daily work is not monotonous, but diverse and stimulating. During the apprenticeship or degree program, overseas stays at international service locations and companies are possible.
What professions does Caterpillar Energy Solutions offer apprenticeships for, and what are the most popular ones?
We offer apprenticeships in mechatronics, industrial mechanics, business administration, and warehousing. Additionally, Caterpillar Energy Solutions offers integrated degree programs in the fields of business engineering, integrated engineering, mechanical engineering, and electrical engineering. Apprenticeships in mechatronics and business administration and degrees in mechanical engineering are especially popular.
Are there still any apprenticeship posts available for this year?
This year, we have staffed all apprenticeships, but posts are still available for various professions for 2022 and can be applied for.
What is so special about the virtual IHK apprenticeship fair?
The virtual IHK apprenticeship fair can easily be viewed online from any location. Thus, you can “walk through” the virtual information booths of the companies that offer apprenticeships whenever you wish and get information about the respective professions without any time pressure. Applications for apprenticeships at Caterpillar Energy Solutions can easily be submitted using the contact details left with the apprenticeship booth.
How can I get the most out of the virtual apprenticeship fair?
High-school students should make it a point to visit the fair. Perhaps the visit could be organized by the school. In view of the huge offering, it would be advisable to focus on specific professions. Of course, digital fairs lack the human factor that plays a significant role at on-site fairs. Nevertheless, virtual fairs can serve as an initial point of contact for prospective apprentices who would like to get a sneak peek into the professions for which apprenticeships are offered. This should always be followed by a personal conversation with the respective company. For this reason, we would like to encourage all who would be interested in applying for an apprenticeship or integrated degree program at Caterpillar Energy Solutions to approach us with their questions.
