First steps into the working world: your work ecperience at COG

world of work

The path to working life can be rocky. Not least because of the vast array of options: What jobs are there actually? And which is the right one for me? What does it look like in a manufacturing company? What does manufacturing involve, exactly? Perhaps that is something for me?  

If you have already asked yourself these or similar questions, then a work experience placement is just what you need. Because in just a short time, you will learn lots about our company and our products. But above all, you will get to know your own preferences. In turn, this can be an important help when it comes to making the right decision for your personal life path.  

Depending on your educational level, we offer three different work experience placement opportunities.

COG develops and produces precision seals, predominantly O-rings. We are one of the world’s leading O-ring specialists.

After completion of your work placement, you will safely be able to answer the following questions:

  • What departments does a manufacturing company have?
  • What work is carried out in them?
  • And: Is this something I’m interested in?

2.) Theory and practice: The specialist placement
