WE GET PEOPLE TO WHERE THEY’RE GOING. AND ARE SHAPING THE FUTURE.
The Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe (BVG), Germany’s biggest public transport company, is responding to the great ecological and social challenges of future urban travel with innovative strategies and cutting-edge technology.
The numbers prove it: we cut quite a figure.
We’ve been keeping Berlin moving for over 90 years, covering an area of around 892 km2. Our 15,300 employees from 55 nations keep everything running smoothly in over 240 different professions, 24/7, 365 days a year.
Anyone who wants to use our services and who doesn’t happen to be among our 841,993 subscribers can get a ticket at one of 1,183 machines and set off right away. With 910,000 departures every day, there are plenty of opportunities to do so. In total, we serve almost 7,500 stops and stations, getting more than a billion passengers to their destinations every year.
The webinar explains the vocational training system in Germany, based on the vocational training at the BVG. Vocational training is the instrument in Germany for covering the need for skilled workers. Other topics are the opportunity of a professional university bachelor and an internship in the various departments of BVG.
The webinar includes also the company needs regarding qualified workers on professional and academic level. The job market in Germany is increasingly characterized by a shortage of skilled workers. This circumstance offers many opportunities for career changers, people with academic degrees or completed vocational training. Graduate dropouts are also increasingly coming into focus.
In the second part of the webinar the speaker Stefan Christian will answer the questions of the participants via chat.
This webinar is for: young people looking to learn a profession as trainee or doing a dual study course with professional bachelor, students looking for traineeship, skilled workers, job and career advisers
