Do you appreciate coming into contact with talented young students – and do you have projects that have long been on the back burner? If so, the coaching programme is just the thing for you! Give students in the last year of their Tourism & Mobility degree programme the opportunity to enhance their career aptitude by giving them deeper insights into the industry gained from active involvement in your company. As a coaching organisation, you benefit from interested and motivated young students with well-founded and up-to-date knowledge of the tourism and mobility sector.
Involvement in projects (possibly even on an independent basis); drafting concepts or strategies; benchmarking or other evaluations; organising events; assistant activities, etc.
Scope of deployment
Bachelor students can essentially work one full day in the company, while master’s students can work up to 40%. Longer periods are possible during semester holidays. You yourself specify the exact form of collaboration with the students. The first practical period lasts at least two weeks and takes place from 9 July to 7 September 2017. Remuneration is not the primary focus. We assume an amount of approx. CHF 2,000 to CHF 3,000/month (for a 100% position).
Role of the coach
You take on the role of coach and support students in the company as they gather initial work experience.
