Apprentice wins apprenticeship prize awarded by AGA Unternehmensverband and INW – Bildungswerk Nord to the best young salesperson in the field of foreign trade in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern
Mr. Löwe shortened his professional training from three to two years and achieved one of the best results in his year. Before starting the apprenticeship, he had already studied four semesters of business economics, but wasn't very happy with the course.
In the company, Mr. Löwe worked in the purchasing and materials management departments among others, where he established an extremely high standing. He impressed his colleagues and quickly began working independently on large projects. With his technical knowledge and his passion for innovations and new developments, he made a number of good suggestions, which were gratefully received.
Mr. Löwe now works as head of department in a jewelry company based in Hamburg, where many new challenges and international assignments await him.
AGA and INW have been awarding the apprenticeship prizes in the north of Germany for 17 years. The winner of the award receives 500 euro and a training voucher. Requirements for taking part in the competition include a good overall result in the Chamber of Industry & Commerce examination and very good marks in the practical and oral part of the exam. A jury of experienced personnel managers chooses the best apprentices from the applications received.
For the first time this year, the top three apprentices in the north will be chosen from the apprentice prize winners from the five north German states. In an award ceremony held in Hanover on 12 November, all winners of the apprenticeship prizes and the Apprentices of the North will be honored by Lower Saxony's Minister for Economic Affairs, Olaf Lies, and former national football player and organization founder Christoph Metzelder.
