"To extend our pioneering role into the future, we are going to continue to need talented engineers with initiative and new ideas." With these words, Cem Peksaglam, CEO of Wacker Neuson SE, opened the 12th Family Business Career Day, which was held at Wacker Neuson SE’s corporate headquarters in Munich.
For the first time a separate area was set aside on the exhibition floor where a total of 30 leading family businesses from all over Germany were able to showcase their activities, primarily for the benefit of engineers amongst the approximately 600 accredited job candidates. In the so-called ‘Engineering Lab' engineers representing some of the exhibiting companies demonstrated how their products are produced. Thus, technology was the bridge to inspire candidates about a given company.
Some 450 university graduates and young professionals from all over Germany came to Oetker-Welt in Bielefeld to attend the 11th Family Business Career on the 28th of June. More had applied than ever before, wherby over 3,000 candidates were selected in advance based on the strengths of their applications. They were welcomed by Stefan Heidbreder, Director of the Foundation for Family Businesses, Richard Oetker, Managing Partner of Dr. August Oetker KG, and Stefan Klemm, owner of the Entrepreneurs Club e.K.
