Presentation of Salzburg companies at career fairs

Throughout the year, we will be attending national and international career fairs together with Salzburg-based companies to represent the Salzburg location. There are still available dates with free booth spaces!

The shortage of skilled workers poses significant challenges for companies and our economic location. This is further exacerbated by demographic changes and a rapidly growing international competition for talented individuals. The IT industry, in particular, has experienced a worsening shortage of personnel. In Salzburg, efforts are being made on various fronts to address these challenges and to enhance the development of skilled workers, education, and the attractiveness and visibility of Salzburg as a place to work. One important component of these efforts is participating in career fairs both domestically and internationally.

Below you will find the dates of upcoming career fairs. For those marked with an asterisk (*), we still have available spots for you to join us in representing Salzburg and your company.
