Everyone can show themselves at their best here
Young Talent Day is, of course, a selection process too. But the focus is less on competition among the applicants and more on team spirit, appreciation and … fun.
They are interested in training to be a real estate agent with Deutsche Wohnen, they applied via the applicant management system, performed well in the online test and made an impression with their application documents, and here they now are – the twelve applicants attending the first of this year’s two Young Talent Days.
The nervousness among the young people, most of whom are school pupils who will soon take their secondary school diploma, is initially palpable – but has then vanished by the end of the first module. They now know what to expect in the course of the day, they have all introduced themselves and the ice has been broken. “A relaxed atmosphere develops straight away,” says Katrin Birnbaum, Head of Training at Deutsche Wohnen, who has observed this time and again. “And the applicants are already benefiting from one another from the very first stage as the various presentation forms give them a lot of ideas for how they could improve their own presentation.”
