Parents, teachers, careers advisors

Choosing a career – a difficult decision

Which profession should I learn? This is one of the most frequently asked questions that you as a parent, teacher or careers advisor will be asked by young adults reaching the end of their school education.

As one of Switzerland's biggest employers, we offer a whole host of attractive career opportunities. There is a market for the apprenticeships we offer and all are recognized by the Federal Office for Professional Education and Technology (OPET). Such a broad and formidable range of opportunities could only be offered by a large and innovative company such as Swiss Post.

We are currently training up more than 2,000 young people in 14 different professions. Through placements in our various units and also with our partner firms, the apprentices are learning to become increasingly flexible and independent – characteristics which are crucial if they are to hold their own in the fast-changing job market.
