Young professionals with a passion for technology meet SKIDATA as part of Salzburg's Summer-IT-Week

SKIDATA opens the doors of the IT branch to new recruits

During the Summer-IT-Week from July 25-29, 2016, everything in Salzburg was dedicated to supporting young people. The goal: getting up-and-comers in the workforce excited about the IT industry and to illustrate the variety of this professional field. SKIDATA presented multi-faceted opportunities for development and gave interested young men and women the chance to get a closer look at one of Salzburg's most successful companies. Events like the Summer-IT-Week are not only advantageous for participants, but they also give companies the chance to motivate young professionals for a job in their branch.

Innovative access solutions and ticketing systems from SKIDATA – a first look for Summer-IT-Week participants

Interested IT-Week participants learned about various careers, including the variety of apprenticeships at SKIDATA, through workshops and company visits. Before things got started, participants had the opportunity to fill up in the SKIDATA cafeteria. There were many interesting looks at different apprenticeships during the Summer-IT-Week company visit. Participants also tested innovative access solutions and ticket systems themselves and learned about the technology inside. The inquisitive young participants got a better look at a software developer's everyday worklife and learned how a computer is built. The importance of data encryption was also among the topics discussed.
