Cisco and Telekom trainees working together for a successful future of the girls

For the sixth time in a row female students of the “Integrierten Sekundarschule Wolfgang Borchert“ school  from Berlin-Spandau came to the Cisco Office in Berlin to find out more about jobs and the work environment in the IT sector.  The Girls’ Day at Cisco started with a TelePresence Demo which was very interesting for the girls – everyone knows about Skype – but the girls directly wanted to know how much it would cost to have such a technology at home…

Carsten Johnson, who organized the Girls’ Day, welcomed the visitors. Before that they had a tour through a server room led by Thomas Gerneth.  Director transformational and Enterprise Accounts and also the father of two girls, Uwe Peter presented the company and explained the importance of that day and their future career choice to the girls. Afterwards Evelyn Feldhoff, Account Manager, demonstrated how the Internet works. This started with a little movie

Finally the girls had various workshops with trainees of Deutsche Telekom discussing subjects as “security in the Internet” or “cyber-bullying”.  Taking apart computers and putting them back together as well as practicing job interviews concluded the day.
