Exhibitor Statements

Hofer KG

For us as a company, CAREER & Competence offers a good opportunity to exchange ideas with students and graduates and to present ourselves as an employer in an authentic way. Owing to the large number of trade fair visitors, we can make many valuable contacts each year and hold promising talks about the career prospects at HOFER.

The fair was a great success this year too and a great platform to get in direct contact with dedicated students. We had very good discussions and received interesting applications for positions at various Deloitte locations in Vienna and Tyrol directly at the fair. The students asked very specific questions and discussed career opportunities extensively with us. It was a great pleasure to see how many dedicated students are interested in starting a career in counselling. We are looking forward to the next time!

The CAREER & Competence is a great forum for the successful dialogue between businesses and students. Congratulations to the organisers. Everything was well arranged by the organiser. We were also thrilled about how professionally many of the visitors were prepared. So we were able to hold several interesting discussions and occasionally even clear important points for further job interviews. C&C was therefore a great success for Porsche Holding.

CAREER & Competence 2020

The Career Fair for Students, Graduates, (Young) Professionals

Career fair for the academic job market

Around 55 regional, national and international companies and organizations will be represented at CAREER & Competence in 0, looking forward to meeting and speaking to the 2,000 to 2,500 expected visitors. Young professionals, top performers, graduates and students who are about to complete their studies will have the opportunity to get to know potential employers in a personal conversation and get an overview of the current labour market situation.

For companies, the event offers a unique opportunity to engage in dialogue with well-educated job-seekers, to establish important cross-industry contacts and to simultaneously present their businesses to a broad audience.

Career Fairs: A win-win situation

Put simply: recruitment fairs are all about making contacts – those between job-seekers and HR personnel, contractors and businesses, graduates and recruiters. Companies that have training places and / or job vacancies present themselves there and offer job-seekers the opportunity to get to know the company, view vacant job offers and apply for relevant jobs. More often than not, potential job applicants have the chance to have their application documents checked on site by experienced HR personnel and get tips for upcoming job interviews.

At a strong university and business location like Tyrol, job fairs, particularly CAREER & Competence, offer considerable advantages to both employers and applicants – so a real win-win situation. To fully exploit the potential of the career fair, there are a few things both sides need to bear in mind.
