Nearly 300 people attended the LeipGlo Job Fair 4 on Tuesday, October 17 at Werk 2’s Halle D in Connewitz. The job fair was the first that LeipGlo produced since 2019 due to the pandemic, and our 12 exhibitors were able to spend the afternoon chatting and networking with local job seekers.
Leipzig has witnessed remarkable growth in recent years, but despite the availability of numerous job search platforms and events, finding the right match for both companies and potential employees remains a challenge. Recognizing this gap, LeipGlo.com has been actively bridging this divide since 2018 through our popular jobs page and job fair series.
In all of our job fairs, we hope to create an informal and friendly atmosphere—and we think we delivered that yet again!
Over at the LeipGlo booth, we enjoyed meeting with Glocals and hearing about their experiences settling in Leipzig, and especially how LeipGlo’s articles helped them find community and feel more at home.
