“I wish you all a successful day“, were the words used by Professor Dr Oliver Götz, Vice-Dean for marketing and corporate contacts, to greet the exhibitors and students at the start of the 2019 International Business Fair (IBF) last Tuesday.

At the annual career fair, organised by ESB Business School, 60 top-class employers, including 26 partner companies, introduced themselves on Reutlingen University’s campus. “The IBF offers students and companies an ideal platform to establish contacts. Today our students are given the opportunity to gain interesting insights into many different areas of activity“, continued Professor Dr Götz.

International Business student Clara Beger appreciated the chance to meet exciting employers during conversations at the fair: “A great opportunity to learn about internships, traineeships and job prospects.”

Exhibitor Lisa Rapp from Payback GmbH reported on what can result from a conversation at the IBF. She studied at ESB Business School herself and met her present employer at the IBF: “An internship at Payback came about through the contact at the IBF. I have been a member of the permanent staff there since 2017.“ 

“Today is a day full of opportunities“, underlined Antonia Eitel. The International Business student together with Marsela Bebic and Vera Spindler are members of the fair’s organisation team. It is a tradition that the International Business Fair is organised by students from ESB Business School, in close cooperation with the Career Center. The organisational team of the 2019 IBF was supported by a core team of 15 students. Today an additional 80 people are helping out.   

Career fair networking on campus will continue in autumn 2019 at the Company Forum (FIFO). You will find some impressions of the 2019 International Business Fair 2019 in the photo gallery.
