Girls' Day

On Girls' Day, a nationwide program, schoolgirls learn about apprenticeships in the IT, craftsmanship and engineering sectors. The goal is to encourage girls to opt for technical professions and overcome their aversion to 'boys' jobs'.

Girls' Day

Truma takes part in Girls' Day every two years. Girls of 14 years of age and over see the theoretical and practical side of various technical professional in our company and learn how interesting they are. You also have the opportunity to try out soldering or milling and talk to women who work in these technical professions. You are given valuable tips on how to apply and can forge initial contact to our company. Our apprentices are responsible for organising the Girls‘ Day at Truma. This means that you get first hand information and can ask these girls and boys, who are just a few years older than yourself, whatever you want.

New Paths in Career and Life Planning for Boys

By the way, boys can also use this nationwide day to actively examine their own personal career and future goals in programs and workshops offered at all schools.

We look forward to receiving your application!
