14 yo boy looking for 3-day Apprenticeship

My 14 yo son came home from school yesterday and said that he needs to find an apprenticeship placement for 3 days in November. He would like it to involve Economics (wide spectrum, I know..) and in the area of Basel. He is fluent in English, German and French. Does anyone have any ideas or tips? Perhaps some HR people out there who could recommend their company as a springboard? Please PM me if so.

Your help would be greatly appreciated!

Re: 14 yo boy looking for 3-day Apprenticeship

This is what we call a "Schnupperlehre". The idea is to have a 'sniff' of working life and if the envisaged trade and company appeals to the future apprentice.

Check with http://www.lenabb.ch/schnupperlehren/

Dozens of companies offer Schnupperlehren.
