On 20 and 21 October 2021, the Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg's company contact fair celebrated its 19th anniversary as a hybrid career event. Numerous students and alumni took advantage of the opportunity to talk to more than 70 companies and start-ups from the region as well as all over Germany and find out about topics such as starting a career. Numerous online lectures, the creation of application photos, networking in the start-up lounge or at the trade fair stands - these and even more highlights were to be discovered by the participants this year.
After the company contact fair was offered as a digital event last year, the companies and the participants were particularly pleased to exchange information directly on site about professional entry opportunities and career opportunities in various sectors such as mechanical engineering, information technology or human resources management.
Whether internship, thesis or career entry - the company contact fair had the right offer for everyone. Using the jobteaser platform, students and alumni can choose from hundreds of offers to find the one that suits their skills.
We have compiled a few impressions of the two days of the fair below.
From October 28th to 29th, this year's company contact fair will move to a digital exhibition center. On the platform firmenkontaktmesse.expo-ip.com, around 50 well-known companies provide information about career entry opportunities and career opportunities. Just like at a real trade fair, you can meet information, videos and people at the digital exhibition stands and talk directly to HR managers. There is also an attractive program of lectures on interesting career topics.
Of course you will also find a lot of job offers at the fair. If that's not enough for you, the OVGU's career platform ovgu.jobteaser.com has further options to find the right one for you from several hundred offers.
Meanwhile on October 27 + 28. the popular photo shooting for application photos took place on the OVGU campus in the university library.
A special highlight is the competition that takes place at the same time, in which every visitor to the firmenkontaktmesse.expo-ip.com trade fair platform automatically takes part, provided this has been specified when registering. There are e.g. win an Apple Macbook as the main prize as well as other Apple products and various vouchers.

Warning notice about EXPO GUIDE, MULPOR Company, International Fairs Directory and other dubious providers
Due to the current occasion, we would like to warn you of dubious mail from foreign companies who want to sneak a fee-based entry in a business directory eg. under the guise of the Firmenkontaktmesse (career fair). Therefore our note at this point:
We have no business relationship to the following companies
- EXPO GUIDE
- Construct Data Verlag AG
- MULPOR Company
- International Fairs Directory
- or similar dubious providers
and explicitly distance ourselves from the business practices of these companies. You will never receive such a request from us.
We have been informed that exhibitors of our events were contacted from companies such as International Fairs, EXPO GUIDE from Mexico, MULPOR Company or similar dubious companies. These companies send order forms for catalog entries that at first glance might look as if they came from us. Exhibitors are also asked to compare company data and to complete or correct it in an attached order form in order to enable users to contact the exhibitor without any problems. Exhibitors who comply with this request conclude a multi-year contract for the publication of their company data, which results in annual costs of more than EUR 3000. We expressly make it clear that we have no connection to these companies at all and other companies that make such offers on our behalf. We expressly distance ourselves from the business practices of these companies.
If you already have already signed the order letter for International Fairs, Expo Guide, Fair Guide or Construct Data Verlag or similar, we strongly advise you to contest your declaration immediately for fraudulent deception.
In addition, you should terminate the contract in order to exclude a purchase obligation for the future. In this context, we refer to the judgment of the Cologne District Court of 04.07.2007, "Az. 9 S 44/07. (Https://openjur.de/nw/lg_koln-rspr.html)
Thereafter, the acceptance of the offer for entry in an Internet directory may be contestable despite mention of the monthly / annual costs due to fraudulent deception, if the offer otherwise results in a deception by means of presentation and wording. Finally, you should contact a lawyer immediately to check whether payment is required. Offers from other publishers or trade fair publications are not related to events organized by our company!

Firmenkontaktmesse (career fair) has changed its website. The new website is much more modern and, above all, responsive. The usability and the performance has been improved.
Another innovation is the connection of the job exchange to the OVGU job exchange "JOBTEASER", which was introduced at OVGU last year.
