The IZB Job Fair on 20th October 2016

Career Contacts for Students, Graduates and Young Professionals

The Job Fair is one of the long-standing traditions and a successful event of the International Suppliers Fair (IZB). Every two years, it brings together the companies of the automotive industry and jobseekers. On 20th October, representatives from the human resources departments of exhibitors at the IZB will provide answers to all questions concerning career entry, career, employment and further education opportunities. Current job advertisements will be displayed on the Job Wall in Hall 1 and will also be published online at www.izb-online.com/en/events/job-fair, enabling companies to present their vacancies to a wide audience. Visitors can make the most of the opportunity to have their application portfolios checked for free by Wolfsburg AG at the company's stand. On 20th October, students and school pupils can enjoy free admission to the IZB upon presentation of a valid student/pupil ID card.

On the occasion of the IZB Job Fair, Wolfsburg AG is working in cooperation with the trade newspaper "Automobilwoche", which will publish its special "Karriereführer" publication shortly before the start of the trade fair. This publication is aimed at specialists and executives from the automotive industry and contains both job advertisements and employer profiles. Jobseekers can also find more than 50,000 advertisements for jobs in the automotive industry on the Automobilwoche online job portal at "jobs.automobilwoche.de".

The IZB Job Fair has constantly been attracting more and more interest among both exhibitors and jobseekers in recent years. At the IZB in 2014, for example, more than 2500 students, graduates and young professionals made the most of the opportunity to establish direct contact with the exhibitors.

The fact that the IZB Job Fair is promoted across a campus network of over 100 universities offering courses in automotive subjects, business and technology, applied sciences and information technology throughout Germany enables more than 370,000 students to find out about the event.
