Career Opportunities in Craft Sector

In the past, parents lured their offspring into craft professions with the slogan “Craft has golden ground". Today, craft has a somewhat dusty image and many young people prefer to study. But there are many career opportunities, especially in craft. Many professions and training courses are adapting to the digitalised world. Mechanic became mechatronics engineer and an electrician is also familiar with smart home applications. In times of full capacity utilization, solid craft training is basically like a job insurance.

Master Craftsman or Master of Science?

Salary statistics show that a master craftsman can earn just as much as a Bachelor, a good entrepreneur can even surpass a Master[1]. And the chances of taking the step into self-employment are almost rare. Only in Germany approximately 150,000 business transfers are planned by 2022[2]. So anyone who has the master craftsman's title required in many trades can take the step into self-employment without great risk.

Retaining Young Employees

Young career starters in particular have a high digital affinity. They use the possibilities of digital communication as a matter of course. Craft businesses that move with the times here show the young talents that they are innovative. Especially in the competition for good trainees, a trend-setting digital tool like zip.app can make the decisive difference.
