Companies introduce themselves to young talent

This year, once again, Invest Region Leipzig supported the University of Leipzig and HTWK Leipzig with the event “Work in Leipzig”. Students, doctoral candidates and alumni of all disciplines were able to join the discussion group online again and find out about job prospects at young and new companies in and around Leipzig and ask your questions.

The aim of the successful annual event is that young talents become aware of companies, enter into an exchange and find out which entry opportunities they have after their training in the Leipzig region. After the brief introduction of the participating employers, the participants were able to use the chat to share hot topics with the group. Whether about working hours, internships, remote jobs or lateral entry – many questions were asked by the numerous interested parties.

This year the companies XITASO, Sprin-D, Natuvion, AKKA and UK company Huboo presented themselves.
