Business Backstage

“Business Backstage” is the careers-guidance format of the Cap&Couch Group.

The aim of this video format is to give young people an insight into the widest variety of professions in order to help them find their place in the world of work. A survey conducted by the Bertelsmann Foundation found that school leavers have no problems finding information about different careers, but lack the opportunities to speak to people in those jobs within a structured environment. This gap is filled by “Cap&Couch – Business Backstage”. We invite people from all professional groups to join us on our couch and talk about how they got into the job as well as the responsibilities and challenges they face every single day. The videos are produced by “Cap&Couch – Media House”.
