As part of the initiative “"Experiencing Europe"”, Continental has launched a program specifically for young people. Together with Germany’s Federal Employment Agency, we offer jobseekers aged 18 to 25 short internships at our locations elsewhere in Europe. Young people who have not yet gained any professional experience or completed a degree are eligible to take part. The project is a nationwide initiative in Germany that other companies wish to join.
The aim is to make it easier for young people to access the rest of Europe and thus strengthen the sense of a European community. We also see the project as an opportunity to discover potential employees and new talents.
The pilot for the initiative was launched at Continental in June 2017. As part of the initiative "We l.o.ve. Europe" the first participants started foreign internships at Continental locations in Belgium, France, Hungary, Italy, Portugal, Romania, and the United Kingdom. Under the umbrella of “Experiencing Europe,” the plan is for more German companies to now take part in order to enable more young people to access Europe.
