02.2019: Plant-a-Talent and Amazon launch second joint mentoring program

Integration und Wachstum durch Arbeit – this is the motto of Plant-a-Talent, one of the leading non-profit companies in Munich. The job exchange has set itself the task of bringing together refugees, other immigrants and employers. It also offers integration consulting, coaching and training for companies and their employees. Since April 2016, the young team has already filled more than 220 positions. A success that is possible because Plant-a-Talent looks after each candidate individually, develops and prepares for the new job. From big business to small business, employers can submit their vacancies and get documents from handpicked applicants that fit.

In the Munich Plant-a-Talent-Team many employees have a migration background or sought asylum. Not only do they understand the concerns of asylum seekers, they also often speak their language. They give good examples of successful integration.

Another advantage of Plant-a-Talent: The benefits for candidates are free. Donations and sponsors fall on particularly fertile ground here.

01.2019: PaT candidates undergo the pre-vocational workshop with goetzpartners.

Together with goetzpartners, we organize a workshop in which employees of goetzpartners voluntarily support our candidates. The one-on-one sessions aim at the personal support of the candidates during their respective application process. The CVs of the participants are professionalized, their career options are assessed and they get the skills to be able to apply independently in the future. Many thanks to goetzpartners for their outstanding commitment.

New mentoring program with Amazon!

On February 14, 2018, another corporate mentoring program was launched, this time in cooperation with Amazon! Ten Plant-a-Talent candidates are brought together with two mentors and supported by them on the way to integration.

Our program has three main focuses:

Education: The regular contact of the mentee to the mentors should accelerate the learning of the German language.
In addition, the program aims to improve the personal, social and methodological skills that are essential for sustainable employment in Germany.

Employment: Mentors can assist their respective mentees with job interview preparation exercises. Furthermore, they can answer specific questions related to the job search and provide practical advice on professional communication at the later workplace.

Cultural Integration: Mentors can facilitate mentee access to German society and support the removal of cultural barriers through proposals for and joint participation in social and cultural activities involving German citizens.

We are looking forward to the results and will be happy to announce positive feedback in our next newsletter!

Integration und Wachstum durch Arbeit – so lautet das Motto von Plant-a-Talent, eines der führenden, gemeinnützigen Unternehmen in München. Die Jobbörse hat sich zur Aufgabe gemacht, geflüchtete Menschen und Arbeitgeber zusammen zu bringen. Außerdem bietet sie Integrationsberatung, Coachings und Trainings für Unternehmen und deren Mitarbeiter.
Seit April 2016 konnte das junge Team schon mehr als 150 Stellen besetzen. Ein Erfolg, der möglich ist, weil Plant-a-Talent jeden Kandidaten individuell betreut, weiterbildet und auf den neuen Job vorbereitet. Vom Großunternehmen bis Kleinbetrieb können Arbeitgeber ihre Stellenangebote einsenden und erhalten Unterlagen von handverlesenen Bewerber, die passen.

Im Münchner Plant-a-Talent-Team haben viele Mitarbeiter Migrations-hintergrund oder sind geflüchtet. Sie verstehen nicht nur die Sorgen der Asylsuchenden, sondern sprechen auch oft ihre Sprache. Sie geben gute Beispiele für gelungene Integration.

Noch ein Vorteil von Plant-a-Talent: Die Leistungen für Kandidaten sind kostenlos. Spenden und Sponsoren fallen hier auf besonders fruchtbaren Boden.
