Bears Trading, St. Gallen
Practice company of the club school Migros Ostschweiz
Under the name Bears International AG, a training firm was founded in October 2003 in cooperation with the Office of Labor of the Canton of St. Gallen and the Migros St. Gallen Club School. In this labour market measure, up to 25 job seekers find temporary commercial employment. Our participants are between 18 and 60 years old. Due to the excellent location of the business premises at St. Gallen main station, our catchment area extends from Wil to Oberriet, from Rapperswil to St. Gallen and across the two cantons of Appenzell.
The practice company Bears Trading is a fictitious, virtual company that works in a network of over 7,500 practice companies worldwide. Fictitious sales and purchases are carried out - in contrast to the free economy, however, there is no flow of goods. Orders are placed from catalogues and flyers or also in online shops. In the "learning by doing" system, participants improve their commercial knowledge and skills in the various departments such as administration, sales/marketing, accounting and purchasing.
