Career Day 2017 with face-to-face recruiting + 4 symposia

This year's, in the meantime, third Recruiting Career Day of bbw University of Applied Sciences started on 17th October 2017 with a new attractive format. In Haus der Wirtschaft two events made that day very special: on the one hand, 27 companies introduced themselves and offered students and graduates a high number of internships, student work or trainee positions for their career start, and on the other hand, visitors could discuss interesting topics at four sessions taking place at the podium.
Suitably to the event, all four sessions dealt with the topic of the future, especially with so called working environments 4.0. Thereby, professors and students compared their scientific approaches and visions with the experiences and perceptions of practitioners from economy in lively and valid debates.

These were the fields of tension:

Fashion and sustainability
Digitalization: cultural shock for engineers?
Start-ups versus Grown-ups
Tourism in times of crisis

The complex preparation of the panel discussions was completed by a project team under the direction of Prof. Dr. Frank Wolter and with students of different semesters from the study programme Business Sciences (Tourism and Event Management). They were supported by students of Business Information Technology, Fashion Management and Electrical Engineering. Students and professors worked months on the preparation of the topics, developed guiding questions, searched for suitable speakers, and made sure that high-level representatives and exciting discussions were achieved. Marie M. from the TU Berlin, who absolved her Bachelor at bbw University of Applied Sciences and now studies in the Master programme in Media Management there, says that she attended two of the sessions. Concerning the topics fashion and start-ups, she "heard lots of convincing arguments and finally had the impression that she has not to be afraid about working environments 4.0. I will have lots of opportunities after graduation. I can envision a start-up for my career start, and I am happy having met so many today. I could most likely shape my working environment there."

Prof. Dr. Frank Wolter said: "I am very glad that we could win really good representatives as speakers for the format of the podium discussion together with the professors of each department and the board of the university. For example, the successful and in the fashion industry well-known founder of tausendkind GmbH, Dr. Kathrin Weiß, attended the sessions, as well as Jobufo founder Thomas Pauker, top executives of greater companies, like the sales manager Paul Scodellaro from Germania Fluggesellschaft mbH or even from major companies like Nico Gramenz, Head of Business Development of Siemens AG or Dr. Volker Bachmann, expert from DB Projektbau GmbH... I am glad that the sessions went so well." The ones who came together in conversations with the companies at the fair stand could discover their chances in fashion industry if they rely on sustainable production and a transparent supply chain, or how to organize the return management in an economically and ecologically sustainable way. They could inform themselves about the attractive MINT-jobs in times of digitalization and about job security, content and career opportunities, as well as about corporate culture in major and minor established and younger companies, and thereby evaluate the pros and cons of an independent or dependent employment, or eventually discuss the changing demands on employees, e.g. in the tourism industry in times of crisis.

Hundreds of students, but also graduates of bbw University of Applied Sciences and of other universities in Berlin used the opportunity to get in contact with the companies that offered job vacancies in almost every business sector. 27 companies of all sizes, established ones and start-ups of all sectors introduced themselves and gave all visitors of the Recruiting Career Day the opportunity to come into conversation with owners, directors, personnel managers and graduates of bbw University of Applied Sciences and to apply for internships, student work or trainee programmes for the start of their career. Many business cards and CV's were swapped and appointments for interviews were planned.

The entire organization of the day was carried out by the head of the Career Service of bbw University of Applied Sciences, Nina Karth, who said: "It is important for bbw University that our students use the opportunity to try out practice and to already find out during their studies where and how to start their career. Thereby, we want to support them. This is why our Bachelor full-time programmes include two internships. For this, we as a Career Service are constantly in touch with companies from all over the world to help our students to find suitable internships and jobs and to organize Career Days, such like this. It is nice to see that the students and even graduates of previous years used the offers of today's Career Day and that so many companies came. Thanks to everyone for this."
