Blog Post by the Boys’ Day participants David K. and Nico D.


What is the Girls’ Day and Boys’ Day?

The Girls’ Day and Boys’ Day gives young people once a year the opportunity to get some insights into the normal working life. It could be helpful to decide, which jobs might be interesting for them after school. The goal of this day is that boys try jobs, which are normally done by women, like educators or industrial clerk. The girls could try typical men jobs, like mechatronic engineer or specialist for warehouse logistics. The management of Elementar supports this events and welcomed the students personally. Furthermore, all together got some information about the company and what Elementar is generally producing.
