More than 300 students visited the new Prangl headquarters in Vienna over the course of several information days.
The young ladies and gentlemen from the Vienna Business School in Akademiestraße and the Bundeshandelsakademie [commercial college] in the Wien 10 district, attained a comprehensive insight into the company. After a short company presentation by the company management, the students were able to "lay hands on" the machines themselves.
During a drive in a trailer they were able to get a feel for the spaciousness of the company site. Our young visitors were able to take a seat beside the driver in a heavy-haulage tractor and also take the controls themselves in a crane cab at the test site. As a last stop, there was an opportunity to ride up to a height of 50 metres with a truck-mounted work platform - a unique selfie opportunity!
Of course the students were also taken on a tour of the office areas in order to experience something of the intern places offered for the summer of 2018.
Despite the icy temperatures, the feedback was very positive, because as a school class it is a little out of the ordinary to get to know a company in such an up-close and personal way.
Alongside the information days described above, the third-year students from the Vienna Business School also had the opportunity to take part in a round-table discussion with Mr Christian Prangl. In a very lively exchange of ideas Mr Prangl described his career path whilst the students in turn talked about their experiences in the practice firm.
