Over 90 companies presented themselves at the job fair on Wednesday, 15 October 2023 at the university of applied sciences in Kiel. Specialist presentations were offered on the topic of job applications and career entry and lots of goodies such as socks, pens, sweets and much more were provided.

If you missed the job fair, no problem! Here is a short summary of all important information and the date for the next “Talent Transfair” in 2024.

On Wednesday, students and those who are interested in career orientation had the opportunity to visit the “Talent Transfair” on the campus of Kiel University of Applied Sciences. The career fair was organised by “myuniboard” and the Christian-Albrechts-Universität and enabled a direct exchange between companies and students. Companies from various sectors such as IT, finance, economy and social affairs were represented, offering interesting employers for every degree.

The fair offered students and alumni the opportunity to network with companies directly on campus. The focus was on career guidance, specific job offers and the professional exchange of experience and knowledge. Student Svea Husfeldt also experienced this: “I was able to have uncomplicated conversations with potential employers and ask questions that otherwise, I would have been able to only ask during a job interview. Therefore, I was able to find out whether the company was interesting to me in advance.” Student Malia Knecht also reports that she was able to get a first impression of the company and its corporate culture by talking to the company employees. “This helped me a lot in deciding whether I want to apply to the company. Also, I particularly liked the fact that I was able to get application photos taken free of charge at the fair so that I could send out my first applications today.”

However, the company presentations were not the only attraction at the fair. Initiatives such as” Kielworks”, which aims to create a connection between students and employers in Kiel through event formats such as “job tastings” or “skills coaching”, were on site and provided information about their offers. In conclusion, it can be said that the job fair is worthwhile for anyone who wants to find out about professional and individual career prospects or enjoys receiving free pens and other company goodies. 

The date for the next year has already been set: The next “Talent Transfair” will take place on 23rd May 2024 at the Christian-Albrechts- Universität in Kiel.
