Whether you are looking for a position in Controlling, IT, Procurement or management trainee programmes: the wholesale and food specialist METRO and its subsidies and group companies offer students and graduates a wide range of opportunities for starting their professional career. The Employer Branding Team explains the different options for joining the company – from internships to national and international trainee programmes, dual study programmes all the way to the METRO POTENTIALS programme which is geared at master graduates. Employees from different divisions will be available for personal conversations with interested visitors at the trade fair stand C62.
The Absolventenkongress graduate fair kicks off with a pre-opening workshop hosted exclusively before the opening of the congress. 100 participants will receive networking tips from METRO experts which they can directly put to use. The experts will also explain how networking works within a company. At the METRO stand, interested visitors can inform themselves about the different options for joining METRO throughout the duration of the congress. In addition, the graduates are invited to find out which qualities they personally consider to be important for their career. With mixed bags, METRO gives them the opportunity to compose different career recipes using sweets that each symbolise the different personal qualities. Is’ fun’ more important or rather ‘passion’ or ‘curiosity’? Or all of them at equal shares? To express their personal mix, the visitors of the stand can compose their individual mixed bags of sweets. At the “Career Speech”, Mutlu Paksoy, Category Manager at METRO Germany, will give a recount of his international career at METRO. Interested visitors can learn how he went from “fascination to passion” on 22 November 2018 at 12:00 noon in the speech hall. The “Feel Good Lounge” that METRO sponsors, offers time for further conversations or relaxing.
