Attractive Outlooks for University Graduates

Rodenstock GmbH offers university graduates attractive opportunities to start their careers. For example, the company participates in recruiting fairs in Munich, Deggendorf and Aalen, as it has in previous years. In addition, selected students can complete practical training with Germany’s leading manufacturer of lenses and frames, or write a very practical thesis with excellent professional guidance.

20 Practical training positions
“We have already been working together intensively with universities for many years in order to acquire the best and most motivated specialists for our company," says Christian Klümper, Head of Corporate Human Resources at Rodenstock. Every year, the company’s headquarters in Munich offers talented up-and-coming scientists the possibility to write their bachelor’s or master’s theses on a topic with practical relevance. Moreover, practical training positions are awarded in the summer and winter semesters. “Students are very happy to make use of both offers. They are given the opportunity to get to know an innovative, industrial company with a leading, international market position in practice,” continues Klümper.

The future is in young talent
Besides a regular dialogue and contact with universities, another important way to acquire qualified specialists and management trainees is at recruiting fairs. This year, Rodenstock was already represented at the Job Market of the University of Deggendorf in April, the AIM Industry Fair of the University of Aalen is coming up in October, and the University Contact Fair (Hoko) is in Munich in November.

“Graduates of economics or communication science, the fields of design, optics, micro and precision engineering, process technology, physics and mechanical engineering have very good chances of being accepted for practical training or an entry-level job offer. However, graduates in other specialised fields are also warmly welcome in our company," adds Christian Klümper. Last year as well, Rodenstock also hired a multitude of new highly qualified graduates. Some of them had previously completed practical training or written a thesis at the Munich headquarters.

High potentials - mentorship
This year for the first time, Rodenstock plans to support the Manage & More programme of the Technical University of Munich. The goal of the programme is to make it easier for scholarship holders to obtain relevant professional experience. Rodenstock will accompany the participants on their way to a professional life in projects and through mentorship.
The “MovING” project of the University of Deggendorf has a similar approach for promoting careers especially for women. In the future, Rodenstock will support this mentorship programme alongside well-known companies like Siemens, Infineon, ZF, MAN, and Pfleiderer.
