Virtual Career Talk by Henkel board member Jan-Dirk Auris

Monday, 21 October 2020

Following on from a series of lectures held by the Henkel Group in recent years, which has been particularly enriching for our students, we had the great honor today to welcome Mr. Jan-Dirk Auris, a member of the Management Board of Henkel AG & Co. KGaA, virtually today.

Mr. Auris took the time to give an inspiring career talk to selected ISR students. He shared personal experiences as well as valuable tips and recommendations with the students, who had to apply for this exclusive meeting in advance.

What made the event special was not only that it was conducted virtually, but also that we were able to welcome Vincent, an Upper school student from our sister school, Franziskus Gymnasium Nonnenwerth, to the lecture.

After Mr. Auri’s lecture, four Henkel employees reported on their career paths and everyday work and thus gave the students an exclusive look behind the scenes of the corporation. The event was rounded off with a Q&A session, where the students had the unique opportunity to ask Mr. Auris and his team open questions about their career paths and the opportunities for entry and promotion at Henkel.

Lectures and meetings like these are held regularly at ISR to introduce our students to the best possible career paths as well as to corporations and companies. We are therefore all the more pleased that this event was able to take place despite the more stringent corona measures and that the students were thus able to take advantage of this unique opportunity.

We would like to thank Mr. Jan-Dirk Auris and his dedicated team colleagues for their time and expertise!
