2023 Networking Recap: New Paths, Fresh Talent

Career fairs were an integral part of our annual agenda before the pandemic. After a period of almost exclusively digital communication, the 2023 job fair season marked a new and exciting journey. Suddenly, face-to-face conversations at our booth felt like uncharted territory. Inspiring encounters and innovative input were part of this adventure.

After an eventful year 2023 packed with career fairs and networking events, ACONEXT’s HR team looks back with gratitude. From Munich to Stuttgart to Karlsruhe, we shared our passion for innovation and the future of mobility with potential candidates like you. Let’s look back at some of our highlights:

In January 2023, we kicked off the year with a test run of our booth at our office. The new design, crafted with dedication, came to life, eagerly awaiting to be showcased to our numerous fair visitors.

The following month, we officially invited engineers and engineering students to join us at the VDI Nachrichten Recruiting Day at MOC Munich. Our aim was to share our passion for future mobility and digital future with you and to establish new connections.

In March, we officially started the fair season. We were present as exhibitors at the VDI Recruiting Day and at the career fair of the Berufliche Fachschule für Fahrzeugtechnik Munich. As the latter career fair was a great success, we have decided to return to the Fachschule für Fahrzeugtechnik (Vocational School of Vehicle Technology) in 2024. We are already looking forward to meeting you there again!

The month of May began with a visit to the introduction day of the Computer Science Forum at the University of Stuttgart. A special highlight: for the first time, we took some Polaroid snapshots of the IT newcomers. The students could take the photos home and post them in their Instagram-stories. Those who shared their photo in their Instagram-stories also secured their participation in an ongoing ACONEXT raffle.

Following the IT event, we visited the KIT in Karlsruhe. The open-air career fair of the university, without the usual booth, was a completely new experience for our HR colleagues and engineering experts. The conversations were inspiring, the atmosphere energetic. This special event had a real festival atmosphere. We are curious about next steps and innovations within the area of networking events.

In June, we returned to Munich. There we presented ourselves at the IKOM at Campus Garching, Munich, where we were delighted to see many familiar and new faces. The informal atmosphere of the event provided plenty of room for discussions about career opportunities and future visions. The finale at the height of summer was another VDI Nachrichten Recruiting Day in July. This time, interested engineers could meet with us in the Congress Center Liederhalle in Baden-Württemberg’s capital.

After a long summer break, November brought the final networking sprints for ACONEXT’s HR team. With the MeetING career fair at the University of Heilbronn and the HOKO-Munich, we entered the last, but very intense round. We have had the opportunity to meet many impressive talents in fall and look forward to shaping the future with some of you.

The 2023 fair season was a great success, so we want to thank all visitors and organizers very much. Your enthusiasm and support meant a lot to us, and we are excited to see what exciting developments will come from our encounters. If you didn’t have the opportunity to meet us in person last year, just follow us on Instagram, LinkedIn or glimpse at our journal (which, by the way, you’re currently in). Whether to stay informed about important company developments in 2024 or to find out when and where the next opportunity arises to simply say “Hello” to us. We look forward to staying in touch with you, meeting new talents and driving innovations in the automotive sector together.
