Every year, we offer more than 150 high school students the opportunity to get to know our company and our apprenticeship professions through taster internships.
During your taster internship, we give you your first insights into the world of work. At ODU, you will experience real-world applications and discover first-hand how rewarding it can be to work successfully as a team. Our goal is to give you a detailed and clear understanding of our various apprenticeship professions. Of course, you can also actively choose (for example) to make a locomotive out of metal, create drawings in CAD, or create purchase orders. You can even have lunch in our company canteen free of charge.
Then feel free to send us your application by email. We will need a short cover letter and a copy of your latest annual report card. Tell us your preferred dates for your internship and which area you would like to explore.

You can explore the professions of toolmaker, CNC technician, mechatronics technician, molding technician, and surface coating technician in the course of a work-experience week:
These six professions are combined into one work-experience week.
You will gain insights into the work in five different administrative departments: Sales, Marketing, Human Resources, Financial Accounting, Purchasing, Shipping/Warehouse Management
You will also get to know all departments that are involved in training an industrial clerk: Sales, Corporate Communications & Marketing, Human Resources, Financial Accounting, Purchasing.
Our apprentices will explain their tasks and allow you to record employees’ leave passes, book invoices, or order office supplies on your own.
As a commercial clerk for wholesale and export, you will gain an understanding of all organizational tasks in the area of logistics. Our goods are shipped all over the world, which naturally involves a lot of commercial activities!
You will learn about the role of a metal technology specialist, a warehouse clerk, and a warehouse logistics specialist.
You will also be introduced to our semi-automated and fully automated machines.
Our customers’ extra requirements are your daily challenges!
You will visit our design department and learn how to create small 2D and 3D models by yourself. You will shadow our apprentices and gain an understanding of the team’s daily workload. Technical product designers produce the designs for our new connectors or their variants. A step-by-step introduction to the creation of CAD drawings is therefore an important aspect of their training.
Do you have permission to do an internship during school time? Great – then feel free to apply to us!
Get a taste of our metal, plastics, chemical, electrical, and design departments in the course of one day – and explore our various apprenticeship professions.
You will gain insights into the following professions: CNC technician (m/f/d), toolmaker (m/f/d), industrial mechanic (m/f/d), mechatronics technician (m/f/d), molding technician for plastics and rubber technology (m/f/d), surface coating technician (m/f/d), and technical product designer (m/f/d).
A work experience day is the perfect opportunity to get to know ODU and explore your skills and interest in technology – by making a metal cube by yourself.
Technology Day is also a great way to get a first taste of our apprenticeship professions. If you like the sound of a particular job description, you can apply for an internship for the next school year.
Technology Day is also suitable for high school students who have already completed several internships in other professions or at other companies – and therefore can’t do any more – but nevertheless want to get to know ODU.
These videos are a great way to find out what our trainees think of life at ODU and how our apprenticeships are structured:
