See for yourself

You are not quite sure whether technology is your thing? Or would you rather get an insight into the world of EVG first before you make up your mind? If so, drop by for a trial internship or for a guided tour through our factory, for our Girl’s Day or just visit us on Facebook. More information can be found also on the website “Your Job”, a career orientation project of Grazer Industrie.

Guided tour for interested apprentices through our factory: owing to the current Covid-19 situation we regret that we are unable to indicate a date for this event at the moment.

At the beginning of my training, I was not quite sure if this were the right profession for a girl. Our preparation for vocational school is very good and we are free to change departments for more diverse training. That’s awesome. Owing to my experience and all the things I have learned, I soon realized that there is no need to worry about my choice of vocation.
