Angelique Reichelt, apprentice process mechanic glass technology in her 2nd year of training

Apprenticeship directly on the doorstep

"My former boyfriend who also works at the glass plant in Ernstthal made me aware of the profession of process mechanic for glass technology. It was important for me to be close to home and to have a technical profession. During my apprenticeship, simply everything impressed me, from the variety of my tasks to the collaboration with my colleagues. At the glass plant in Ernstthal I have good chances of being taken on after my apprenticeship and perhaps also of developing further within the company.”
