More Power for Your Career!
Many exhibitors at the IAA are directly offering jobs for truck drivers and career tips for high-school and college students.
At the IAA young people and skilled personnel can obtain a sweeping overview of the economic strength of the transport industry and learn about exciting job and career opportunities in the commercial vehicle sector. "Big names" such as MAN, VW Nutzfahrzeuge, Rheinmetall Automotive, Mahle and Jost position themselves at the IAA as attractive employers. At their stands, visitors can get direct answers to questions about career opportunities. Company reps will explain the diversified options, ranging from student internships and collaboration on seminar papers and degree theses to job openings. DEKRA will again be offering opportunities for education and continuing education on topics such as transport, warehousing and hazardous goods as well as professional fleet management.
workING 2018 on September 24 – sign up now!
Students from all academic disciplines can learn about entry-level programs and jobs in the automotive industry at the IAA Commercial Vehicles. At the "workING" held in Room 15/16 of the Convention Center on September 24, vehicle manufacturers and automotive suppliers will give specialized presentations providing a glimpse of the broad spectrum of job prospects in the automotive industry. Major brands such as Daimler, Hengst and Knorr-Bremse will be there, too – as will the Bundeswehr to explain the wide range of careers in the German Armed Forces, which have about 15,000 to 20,000 openings each year. Admission to workING and thus to the IAA is free. Registration closes on 18 September 2018.
Every day about 2.8 million commercial vehicles are "on the road" in Germany. In the transport sector, in particular, skilled personnel is in short supply; it is estimated that up to 50,000 truck drivers are lacking. The IAA is thus a meeting place for truckers seeking work and forwarding companies doing hiring. The start-up JobMatchMe located in Pavilion P11 of the New Mobility World offers the online job exchange www.truck-jobs.de aimed at matching drivers and forwarders via a questionnaire. The "job truck' of the HR service provider BHGo Logistik will be parked on the CC grounds. The truck's trailer houses eight PCS on which job-seekers can obtain comprehensive information about job openings for professional drivers. Besides accessing the job portal, users can view educational films produced by the Federal Office for Goods Transport and various manufacturers.
