Twenty-two ninth-grade students from the Großer Griechenmarkt middle school in Cologne had appointments at the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies as part of a weeklong project. They came to have a make-believe interview for an internship. The interview was to take place in the most realistic circumstances possible. Jürgen Lautwein, Administrative Director of the MPIfG, Katrin Schilling, a representative of the Caritas Youth Office for Work and Careers, and Udo Schmidt, the retired managing director of a chemical firm, played the role of their future superiors, conducting interviews with the 14-to-16-year-old youths and offering concluding feedback along with tips for applying. The job camp was organized by theYouth Office of the Caritas Association for the City of Cologne. The MPIfG allows employees to work 16 hours a year on charitable projects as part of a corporate volunteering program.
