How can I benefit?

You have the possibility to explore virtual booths in which each of our partner companies presents itself.

You will also have access to a job wall, and you can hand-in your application documents to each company directly during the fair. This will allow you to get invaluable insights into the businesses of our many partner companies.

Last but not least, there will be various career-related keynote speeches to boost your confidence and success in career development.
