InnoTrans announces Eurailpress career boost

Jan. 27, 2020
The new career pitch format puts job candidates center stage.

Taking as its slogan "Your.Future." the InnoTrans Campus in Hall is presenting numerous informative and interactive formats for students and young professionals in search of a career in the mobility sector. The aim of the new career concept is to offer talented young people a platform where they can network and exchange views with startups, international companies and other decision-makers in this field.

One particular highlight of the new program for young professionals is the Eurailpress Career Boost which will take place on the Talent Stage at the Recruiting LAB Sept. 23 from 2:00-4:00 p.m. The new recruiting format, organized in partnership with the trade magazine Eurailpress, gives five candidates each per category (Technical Careers, Engineers, IT Experts, Skilled Trades and Business Careers) a 90-second opportunity to introduce themselves to prospective employers. After each pitch employers can put three questions to a respective candidate.

”For the first time the innovative Eurailpress Career Boost gives you a chance to take center stage and make a proactive pitch to the industry in an altogether new format," said InnoTrans Director Kerstin Schulz. "Stand out from the crowd and take this opportunity at the InnoTrans Campus to make an impression on the mobility sector’s recruiters."

Manuel Bosch, head of Publishing at DVV Media Group, added, ”The Eurailpress Career Boost format turns the tables. Instead of companies advertising their jobs, talented young  people can make their pitches to them. This is how we are making young professionals visible to the rail industry.“
