More than 320 companies at the 30th careers forum

Anniversary year for IKOM

In 1989, 15 students at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) launched the first IKOM careers fair with 26 companies taking part. Today the 30th edition of IKOM will open its doors – as Germany's biggest student-organized careers fair. For four days, more than 320 companies will be on hand to present themselves to the approximately 15,000 expected attendees. The fair will be flanked by the one-day IKOM Start-Up.

The IKOM became a polished, professional event long before this anniversary year, independently organized by about 130 students, working in their spare time. The forum brings together companies in search of skilled employees with students planning their entry into the career world. Apart from visits to booths manned by company representatives, students can arrange one-on-one meetings.  In addition, IKOM offers training for the application process, a CV review service and a program of information and discussion events.  

Along with the main IKOM fair, the team stages several specialized events every year. These include IKOM Startup, which will take place tomorrow (June 19). Last week the first winner of the IKOM Award for employers with exceptional corporate responsibility was announced.
