With SCHEMBERG to Down Under
Whether for a semester abroad, "Work & Travel" or as a holiday trip - Australia is probably one of the most popular countries when it comes to going abroad as a young person. Maximilian Otte, carpenter apprentice at SCHEMBERG, was offered the opportunity and he immediately took it.
The 20-year-old Mettinger has been working at SCHEMBERG for over two years. The adventure for Maximilian Otte started just over three weeks ago and he took a big step forward. He traveled to Australia for five weeks as part of a program of the European Educational Association to work in the carpentry "Husk & Co." of Sebastian Kopiec in the field of luxury furniture and custom-made furniture.
The program was financially supported by the Federal Ministry of Economics and the HWK Münster.
Personnel Manager Kirstin Rakers explains: "SCHEMBERG is committed to providing its apprentices with the full range of their expertise. Stays abroad such as this contribute significantly to an increase in self-confidence of our trainees."
"My first week here is over and I've had a lot of new experiences. I have come here in a small business, which specializes in high quality furniture for exclusive customers. We have both, customers who are in close proximity to the operation as well as customers in Sydney and the surrounding area. ", reports Maximilian Otte.
At the weekend there will be some private time to explore the country. "At the weekend I was traveling by bike and could discover some beautiful places.”
SCHEMBERG continues to wish Maximilian Otte an experiential stay, exciting impressions and sends many greetings from Mettingen to Australia.
