For the tenth time 80 companies with 210 representatives participated in the annual Career Days at IUBH Campus Bad Honnef last week. Over the course of two days, IUBH students and alumni had the opportunity for face-to-face discussions about internships, trainee programmes, job entry positions and career planning. Company presentations and CV checks topped off the event.
Number of alumni among exhibitors continues to increase
As in previous years, many companies return to participate each year. The steadily increasing proportion of IUBH alumni who represent their employers at Career Days is very pleasing to witness. Employers such as A-ROSA Reederei, Air Hamburg, Marriott International and Art-Invest Real Estate, to name but a few, sent IUBH alumni to talk about career paths and their own experiences in their companies.
Susanne Dusel, Head of Career Office was pleased: "To see our students in business dress and well prepared for discussions with our partner companies is a great pleasure every year and makes us really proud! In this era of job application apps and online platforms, face-to-face personal impressions and interactions are extremely valuable. About 40 % of the companies participating are IUBH Alumni, which makes me especially glad. We therefore look optimistically into the future and are already planning the 11th Career Days for 2019!”
