Scouting for talent on MCI campus

Successful Recruiting Forum 2016: 55 national and international employers meet 1,000 students at the Entrepreneurial School®

On November 14, 2016, the MCI Recruiting Forum took place for the ninth time in the MCI main building in Innsbruck. A total of almost one thousand students and young graduates, that is more than ever before, filled the halls of the Entrepreneurial School®.

On the search for attractive career options, they seized the opportunity to meet 55 national and international companies from different sectors and to establish valuable contacts. Similar to previous years, this year’s Recruiting Forum provided students with the chance to get to know top employers directly on campus and to discuss entry-level career and internship opportunities with HR representatives in a pleasant atmosphere. Participants could inform themselves about the best procedure for internship and job applications, the key competences are required by future employees, and how to successfully manage the transition to working life. For the exhibiting companies, which included top brands as well as internationally thriving niche players, the MCI Recruiting Forum was once again an ideal venue to present themselves as attractive employers and seek out “tomorrow’s talent”.

Alexander Auer, Chair of the MCI Student Council, appreciates the fruitful collaboration with the MCI Career Center and the strong practical orientation of his university: “The MCI Recruiting Forum provides us students with the opportunity to meet companies for future employment or internships. From personal experience, I am aware that such personal contacts are decisive for your future career. Therefore, I can only recommend that all of my fellow students to make use of this service.”

Brigitte Huter, Head of the MCI Career Center, is delighted that once again the Recruiting Forum 2016 provided a popular platform for the networking between companies and students: “Particularly in times of social media, online application procedures, and Skype interviews personal communication can open doors in the application process.”
