German students

Two young professionals from Germany will seek temporary employment in the United States after a semester of classes at Central Lakes College. Barbara Felix and Wolfgang Zollner are students at the Brainerd campus through the year-long exchange program, Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange for Young Professionals. They are among 75 German scholarship recipients. CLC is one of 59 colleges in 32 states hosting the students. During the fall term, Felix and Zollner are completing community service projects as required by the program, which also asks that they find internships in a career field. Felix has education and experience in health insurance customer service, having worked as a social insurance clerk from September 2006 to July 2010. Zollner worked for BMW Corp. as an industrial mechanic apprentice from September 2007 to February 2010. He attended a vocational school in Germany for advanced technical qualifications. Both students are fluent in English, have competent computer skills, and have been tutoring German students at CLC. Joan Jenkins (218-855-8263) is the international student coordinator at CLC.
