Businesses in the Altmark are actively addressing young people and motivating them to stay here with attractive jobs.
In many sectors of the economy, the demand for well qualified specialists is high, whether it's in the trades, agriculture or even in industry. Businesses have to get creative to attract young professionals.
The migration of prospective skilled workers from the Altmark usually begins after they leave school. Because they want to see the world or because apparently better career opportunities and higher pay are tempting elsewhere. For companies looking for trainees, it is therefore important to make their own company interesting for pupils at an early stage and to show them that they do not have to move away for a good job. Direct contact with students, graduates and specialists is maintained at numerous events and trade fairs.
A great opportunity for many companies lies in the homecomers: more and more young people are returning to their old home, the Altmark, after their studies and a few years of work experience, and are seeking their fortune here. What is particularly appealing is a higher quality of life and the family connection.
