Career Calling is a career fair for students and young graduates from all universities and FHs in Austria. The employers attending Career Calling only bring information and jobs for this target group, so participation only makes sense if you have an academic background. 

Networking always makes sense and employers welcome it. However, please note that employers will have primarily internships or entry-level positions, and positions for the first career step with them.

Yes and no. Most Austrian employers use German as their corporate language, so they do require it. Still, each year there are also a few international companies where German language skills are not a prerequisite.

Yes, of course! Especially when you have no professional experience on your CV, personal contacts can give you an edge.

Employers are attending Career Calling Digital Days to find tomorrow’s employees. So they are actively looking for talent in the Career Calling TalentPool. When you share your profile, you become part of this talent pool. This allows companies to address you directly and invite you to 1-1 chats. If you don't want to share your profile, that's fine too, of course. However, employers won’t be able to contact you then, so you will have to be proactive yourself.


Preparation

Well prepared is half done. Inform yourself about exhibiting employers, look through vacancies in advance, prepare an elevator speech about yourself ... and get inspired.

Click on a company profile, select an employee in the “1-1 Chat” tab and send a 1-1 chat request. Once the request is accepted, you will have to select a time slot – now your chat is set. Just log in at the agreed date and get started. Tip: Check the tool's mailbox on a regular basis to see which of your requests have been accepted.

Click on “Session” in the company profile and "Register" to sign up – and participate on October 21 and 22 at the stated time. You want to have a say in a session’s content? Then ask your question under “FAQ” – or vote up another question that has already been asked. The more likes a question receives, the more likely it will be discussed in the session.

No problem! Simply click the “Forgot your password” link, and we will take care of it. 

It is up to you. If you do apply for vacancies in advance, then address it directly at Career Calling – your application documents may have stuck in their memory. If you apply afterwards, don’t forget to reference your fair conversation in your application letter.

There are only a few mandatory fields, so for the most part you can decide for yourself whether you want to fill them out or not. But: The more information you provide, the higher your chances of being discovered by employers. For one thing, completed profiles are prioritized in the search. Also, this will make companies curious about you. A bar in your profile will let you know the status of your completion.

 

On fair day

No, you can attend Career Calling Digital Days however you want. Whether you want to stop by for an hour or be online for several hours on both days – we look forward to seeing you. However, please note that parts of the event program, such as keynotes or employers' insight sessions, will only be available at a certain time. If you don't want to miss it, make sure to be online on time.

Absolutely! The companies are looking forward to welcoming you at their virtual booths. Plus, you will find loads of on-demand information about job entry and application. Keynote speeches also don’t require prior registration.  

There are many ways in which you can use Career Calling for your path to a job – first and foremost, 1-1 chats, chats at the virtual booth, insight sessions, or by writing on the Q&A board.

Each employer has its own company profile, where you can find facts & figures, FAQs, jobs and company pitches. In addition, you will have the opportunity to see company representatives from Deloitte, EVN, Österreichische Post, Raiffeisen Bank International, Takeda, Unilever and WU on the dais during the panels “Working 2021” and “Being a future leader”.

The best way to do so is via their company profile. For one thing, there is a Q&A board: Employers will provide the answer to your question to all participants. (Extra tip: Check FAQs before asking your question – it may have been answered already.)
