Training at MAPAL
As part of her training as an industrial clerk, Lena Klaus gains valuable insights into business processes.
Genuine all-rounders work well in various business departments and carry out tasks in administration and management of business processes. Thanks to her training as an industrial clerk, Lena Klaus appears to have found her calling.
"In the commercial areas of the company, I provide assistance with orders, processing queries, preparing quotes and creating purchase orders. In some departments, I also assist with analysing and processing data", says Lena, summarising her varied range of tasks. She started her training as an industrial clerk at MAPAL in September 2019.
After completing secondary school, the trainee from Göggingen first completed a voluntary social year before deciding to study architecture. Due to the various jobs she took on during the holidays, she noticed that accounting and organisational tasks suited her well. This inspired her to seek a profession where she could receive hands-on training. She had intensive discussions with her parents, who both have many years of experience in business careers. "From this moment on, it became clear to me that this was the direction I wanted to go in and that training as an industrial clerk would provide me with the broadest range of opportunities for my future. At a health insurance company, I would probably have been limited to the health and insurance industries, and even in public services employees often end up stuck in a particular area", Lena reckons. As one of the largest employers in the region, Lena had already heard of MAPAL. "I've driven past the company premises many times and knew that they were active in the tool sector." When she researched the training content during her application process, MAPAL was immediately put on her shortlist. "The fact that MAPAL is both a family-run and a global company was a decisive aspect for me, as it would allow me to gain a varied perspective during my training", explains Lena.
