Career Day

Foyer 5.1/6.1

Presented by: VDI Verlag – your strong partner

A leading media company, strong brand and trustworthy advocate for engineers, technical specialists and managers: VDI Verlag supports its target group competently in their professional activities and career development and draws on over 20 years of experience in successfully organising recruiting events.

Do you realise how sought-after you are?

The baby boomers are leaving the labour market, skilled workers are becoming increasingly scarce and companies are competing internationally in the search for qualified employees. So far, so familiar. But did you also know that most recruitment worldwide - 57 per cent - is planned in the engineering sector? So the prospects for professionals looking to change jobs are excellent. But a career change naturally also raises questions: Which position is perfectly tailored to me? Does a company really suit me? How can I take action myself without relying solely on headhunters?

On Thursday 13 June 2024 it is Career Day at ACHEMA: Use this opportunity to get in touch with top recruiters who will give you individual advice on your career. Due to the on-site presence of exciting potential employers, you will come into direct contact with company representatives and HR managers - and can find out first-hand about vacancies, job profiles and career opportunities as well as the company itself. Regardless of whether you want to start your career or are planning your next career move: Your visit of the Career Day at ACHEMA will definitely get you ahead.

By the way: VDI Verlag will provide you with free vouchers for admission to the fair.

Ideal for your career prospects

At Career Day, ACHEMA companies showcase themselves in their entirety – as a combination of products, brands, personal interaction and an abundance of captivating moments. As well as experiencing the most innovative technology and extensive networking, you will gain profound insights into the companies themselves. What makes Career Day truly exceptional is its ability to offer a diverse spectrum of opportunities, allowing attendees to engage with potential employers in an environment where focus and openness converge. Experience shows that an informal technical discussion can surprisingly quickly turn into a successful job interview.

Who belongs here?

If you’re on the lookout for the ideal job, want direct contact with companies and would like to find out more about careers, then the ACHEMA Career Day is ideal for you. It targets engineers, technical specialists and managers. The offer is aimed primarily at young professionals (up to 3 years of experience) and professionals (>3 years of experience) but is also suitable for graduates and career starters.

What is the Job Board?

The Job Board is a specially designed wall in the Career Day activity area in Foyer 5.1/6.1, where the job offers of all participating companies at ACHEMA are displayed. You will find these job offers also on this website in due time.

How does individual career counselling work?

In consultations lasting around 20 minutes with an HR expert, you have the opportunity to ask your own personal career questions and get advice. If you wish, you can bring your application portfolio with you to gain a better insight into your career and make any improvements to your documents.

Please note: it is essential to register for the career counselling session.

There will probably not be sufficient guaranteed appointments for a free consultation for all those interested. Registration will therefore be on a first-come, first-served basis. Appointments will be allocated on site on 13 June 2024 from 10:00 h.

What does the lecture forum offer?

An all-day supporting programme kicks off at 10:00 h in the Foyer 5.1/6.1, which you should definitely plan in for your visit. As well as diverse employer pitches, it offers informative keynote speeches on jobs and careers, such as engineer salaries or the impact of AI on the recruiting/application process.
