Berne, 28 May 2009
This August, thousands of newly qualified trainees all over Switzerland will be starting the search for a permanent job. Swisscom is responding to the current difficult job market situation for trainees with a bridging programme. The programme is aimed at young people who, having completed an apprenticeship at Swisscom, have neither found a job nor lined up any further training, trips abroad, military service or the like. The bridging period is limited to a maximum of nine months.
The bridging programme and temporary employment will give trainees more time to look for a permanent position. The advantage for the young professionals is that they can give notice on a Job Bridge placement at any time within 30 days to the end of a month, as soon as they have found a permanent position. Swisscom is thereby embracing its social responsibility as a sustainable employer by enabling young people to stay in work, gain more work experience and therefore improve their prospects in the job market.
