Why organize a job fair?
We often hear about how fast Leipzig and region are growing. But even with quite a few job search engines and job fairs serving the area, companies and staff that would be a perfect match still have trouble finding each other. As a result, many become disenchanted and leave our area for “greener pastures” (*cough* Berlin).
We lose many bright, promising job-seekers of diverse backgrounds and talents – and job-givers as well, in a vicious cycle.
As the only local-based international web magazine, The Leipzig Glocal is in touch with this reality. We have launched a campaign to connect great companies with qualified employees among the broad, diverse audience we have been building up – from Germany and over 160 countries.
Our popular jobs page, which reaches thousands of people per month, is part of these efforts. The other is to go offline with our 1st Leipzig Glocal Job Fair, in cooperation with Basislager Coworking, Universität Leipzig Career Service and Techniker Krankenkasse.
Our webzine currently gets about 15,000 views per month and has nearly 8,000 followers combined on social media. We will use these channels and our local institutional partnerships to make sure we reach as many job-seekers as possible.
Where, when, for whom?
The LeipGlo Job Fair will be held at Leipzig’s WERK 2 on 13 November 2018, 1-9 PM.
All interested job-seekers and companies with local headquarters or branches are invited to join. The event is free for job-seekers and was first-come, first-served for job-givers, who had to purchase a stand in advance.
Job-seekers must register through our ticketing system.
Thanks to our experience in event organization, enthusiastic follower base, and extensive networks in our community, we are able to host an event that
- will cater specifically to international-minded people: foreigners and Germans with experience in local and more global contexts (“glocals”); and
- will connect companies with a highly diverse, motivated and talented work force, in a more direct and personal way than online job search engines or gigantic job fairs could.
What are the exhibit options and rates for companies?
START ME UP: Thanks to Die Techniker (TK), 7 smaller companies got to join our job fair at a discount. They will pitch in a competition from 5 to 6 PM in Halle D, for a chance to win cash prizes.
