Information for students

Like every year in the Company Forum all of the students will have the chance to present themselves to attractive companies and to obtain first-hand information.

Why our students should not miss this unique opportunity? The FIFO will give them access to renowned and internationally operating companies which will be available as always for one-to-one conversations on the company stands. In 25-minute presentations the companies introduce themselves and answer the students‘ questions. Further, in interviews the students have the opportunity to obtain a place for an internship, a thesis or even a job offer.

The FIFO makes the application process significantly easier for our students:

  • Students get to know their direct contact persons for applications and do not have to spend a lot of time asking around for the correct contact details
  • They know beforehand which jobs are being offered by the companies
  • The can be sure that their academic education and qualifications are interesting for the companies (otherwise they wouldn’t come to the FIFO)
  • Our students don’t have to travel all over the world but the companies come directly to them on the campus of Reutlingen University!

Even if you do not wish to apply for a particular job, by attending the fair you can build up and expand your network and establish contacts to industry.

Our FIFO is therefore interesting for students from any degree programme and any semester. We hope that all of the students at ESB Business School will make full use of this opportunity again this year. We are looking forward to two highly interesting days in autumn!

Welcoming address

Dear company representatives,
Dear students,

We are pleased to invite you to this year's ESB Firmenforum on the 6th and the 7th of November on the Reutlingen University Campus. The fair is dedicated to interesting meetings and discussions between students and partner companies.

We are honoured to welcome a variety of well-known companies on our campus, that can offer our students a platform to establish contacts with regional and international renowned companies. The FiFo Fair is the ideal place to get in touch with companies from different industries and to find information about internships, final theses or direct entries. As part of a series of speeches, the company representatives have the opportunity to report on their everyday life and provide valuable insights into their daily work. Furthermore, companies can arrange interviews with students on the day of the fair prior to the event in order to find suitable candidates for open positions.

The FIFO app, which was developed for ESB career fairs, helps to keep an overview of the event by providing site plans, event schedules and the company description of the firms who will be present at the fair.

We hope to be able to tie this year’s FiFo up to the success of the previous career fairs and would like to thank all helpers and participants for their commitment in advance. Without you such an event would not be possible!

Sincerely, FiFo-Team 2019

Philipp Heinzelmann, Natalie Knabe, Wiona Slawik und Verena Reis
