Career Concept

The Career Concept takes the idea to take advantage of the meeting of international experts in order to inspire future generations for a professional orientation in the railway sector and to assist them to enter such professions.

The Career & Education Hall with its Career Pavilion serves a central meeting point where job seekers can make direct contact with the exhibitors’ human resources departments.

Some 3 000 students from various countries including Sweden, Russia, Korea, Japan and China visited last InnoTrans.
