FAQ Career Fair

General Questions

What is the KIT Career Fair?
The KIT Career Fair is the annual company contact fair at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). It is organized by Career Service & Alumni at KIT. The fair is aimed at students, doctoral candidates, alumnae and alumni of all disciplines and offers them the opportunity to find out about potential employers and career entry. At the same time, it offers you as a company a platform to present yourself to qualified young professionals with vacancies and information on the application process, recruiting and career paths in your company.
Please note that the fair is intended exclusively for recruiting purposes.
When will the next KIT Career Fair take place?
The KIT Career Fair usually takes place in May, the date for the next fair is May 14 and 15, 2024. The fair is open to participants on both days between 12 and 6 p.m.
Where will the KIT Career Fair be held?
The KIT Career Fair 2024 will once again take place on site on the South Campus of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) as an open-air event in front of the Audimax.
What does the KIT Career Fair look like?
The relaxed open-air concept will remain, but in 2024 there will again be company stands to make it easier to find the companies. The companies will present themselves either in an open community tent with a high table or individually in 3x3m or 4x4m pagodas - the latter with outdoor space for branded beanbags/deckchairs, popcorn machines or exhibits.
Colored dots on the stands indicate the companies' areas of expertise.
We are retaining the open, sustainable open-air festival character with food trucks and seating areas so that students and company representatives can exchange ideas at eye level in a relaxed atmosphere.
