Audi' program gives participants the chance of working in project teams. Financial assistance for the duration of the program is being offered by the carmaker, as well as the possibility of spending up to two semesters abroad. At the end of the training program, students will be given a degree in applied sciences (from the Ingolstadt University of Applied Sciences) as automotive mechanic or mechatronic and a vocational-training certificate.
Some might even be as lucky as to be employed by the Ingolstadt-based manufacturer, as it plans to add to its payroll 350 new experts.
“Because StEP participants work in various specialist departments, they are thoroughly knowledgeable about Audi upon graduating – which is naturally of tremendous benefit,” Michael Gross, Audi head of Personnel Marketing said in a statement.
“Practical experience is valuable and prepares young people very well for the working world. And this is precisely the benefit that our StEP program offers,” added Werner Widuckel, current chief of the carmaker's Human Resources.
Audi offers the slots to all those interested, provided they have a secondary-school diploma (Abitur or Fachabitur). Applications can be submitted at the following link. The carmaker is receiving applications starting today, July 26, until summer 2011. Additional information about the program can also be found at the aforementioned link.
