EVENT: Big German Career Day – Mit Deutsch Karriere machen 2015!
Want to turn your classroom into a career fair?
Our Big German Career Day – Mit Deutsch Karriere machen! was such a success last year that we’re bringing it back this year and making it bigger and better! Instead of just one day of school visits, we’re spreading this event out over 3 months to fit in as many schools as possible!
Spanning throughout September, October and November, we’ll be visiting middle and high schools across Atlanta and the South East to talk to students about how important learning German is in their future careers.
We’ll talk about the benefits of learning German and seek to answer the following questions:
- Which and how many German companies are located in Atlanta and the Southeastern United States?
- What educational background is necessary to work for a German or international company?
- What are the advantages of studying German?
- Studying only German is not sufficient for a career, but combinations with which other courses are particularly useful or sought after?
We’ll bring representatives from German-American companies who will respond to these question and provide information about specific training and career opportunities within the business world in our region – and, most importantly, describe their ideal candidate. Students will also receive information about university programs and scholarships for American students who want to study in Germany.
Sound perfect for your school? If you’re a student, then get your teacher to contact us! If you’re a teacher then get in touch with our Outreach Director, Meredith Steinmetz by sending an email to Meredith.Steinmetz@german-institute.org and include your name, school, class times and potential dates (these cannot be guaranteed) and we will be happy to schedule a date!
We hope you can be part of our celebrations and look forward to working with you!
