With a spring mood set the OXID team off for a two consecutive student job fairs in Konstanz on May 9 and in Furtwangen on May 10 in search for prospective interns and employees.
Konstanz University of Applied Science and its organized student job fair with a meaningful slogan “Connect 2012 – power for success” positively surprised us with their hospitality and a high level of organization. More than 50 firms came together to offer various career opportunities for future professionals in diverse areas. Our booth was constantly surrounded by curious students. The bright red OXID color was really eye-catching. Young people took their time to get possibly more information about OXID, the internship opportunities it is offering and other advantages. We also did our best to satisfy students’ curiosity. Hardly any student left the room without getting to know an ambitious E-Commerce Software producer OXID eSales AG. Special interest was paid to the forthcoming OXID Commons event. Students looked thrilled about the possibility to get to know more about E-Commerce world and to meet many companies in the field personally at one place. And of course people were excited to get our new OXID Commons T-Shirts, which were admitted by everyone to look really trendy. The fact that we run out of our 100 T-shirts already before 12 p.m. was another encouraging factor for coming to the OXID Commons, as our tiptop T-shirt will be distributed there as well.
I have to say a few words about the organization of the job fair as well. It was really great! The full service from the very beginning till the very end: help with parking, bringing all the equipment to the place, unexpected and nourishing breakfast, delicious lunch, complaisant and helpful staff. The overall impression about the fair was very positive. Our team came back to Freiburg inspired and full of positive emotions.
The job fair arranged by Furtwangen University was very successful as well. More than 90 companies were present there in search of ambitious students. The job fair rooms quickly filled with students carrying around bright red bags containing OXID leaflets, brochures and of course the new OXID Commons T-Shirts. Students were approaching the OXID booth with an interest and were leaving satisfied. Our team was pleased to talk to so many interesting students. OXID is coming to Furtwangen not for the first time and is always satisfied with the results and the high level of organization. Many thanks for that!
We hope to come back to the job fairs in Konstanz and in Furtwangen next time again, but for the moment, we are looking forward to get in touch with the interested students and to see many of them during the OXID Commons 2012.
