Career Fair UniMA Digital 2021


The Career Fair is the University of Mannheim’s annual career event. For students and graduates of all bachelor’s and master’s degree programs, it offers the opportunity to make initial contacts for entry into professional life. Numerous national and international companies and institutions from a wide range of industries present themselves and their entry and career paths.

Since the health of the participants and company representatives is a top priority, the Career Fair will be held in digital format for the first time.

The digital Career Fair will take place on April 28, 2021 from 09:00 – 16:00.

You can participate in the digital Career Fair at any time. Interested employers are looking forward to your visit and will be available to answer your career questions – in addition, interesting program points await you.
