The Connect IT company contact fair is organised and hosted annually by the Faculty of Computer Science and Information Systems. The fair is the ideal platform for establishing initial contacts between companies and students in computer science disciplines.
Current fair dates
Finding the right company or new talent
For Connect IT, we will be using the browser-based app "talentefinder" from 2021. Participating companies as well as students of the Faculty of Computer Science and Business Informatics will receive this app a few weeks before the event to create their profiles and job offers. If there is a match, the app automatically determines so-called "matches" between companies and students and establishes the first contact. This way, appointments can be made for chats or video interviews that take place on the days of the fair.
Both sides benefit
Good graduates in IT disciplines are in high demand. That is why companies seek to talk to their potential future employees at Connect IT. The students, in turn, have the chance to get in touch directly with interesting companies. Repeatedly addressed topics are internships, practical semesters, bachelor's and master's theses, but also possible permanent employment after graduation.
Broad spectrum of companies
A broad spectrum of companies is represented at Connect IT, from medium-sized Karlsruhe companies to large international corporations. For many companies, Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences is an interesting trade fair location as an educational institution.
Connect IT brings students and companies together at an early stage. The positive feedback from all participants every year shows how well this concept works.
