Many opportunities: The career event for the public sector

The digitization of society is a process of change which is also transforming the labor market in a sustainable manner. One of the major challenges is the „War of Talents“. To attract the best young talents and the most qualified specialists, companies must act as modern employers. Work life balance, remote work, flexible working time models and new technology standards are the buzzwords that make up a successful employer branding strategy.

The digital change in society and working life creates new demands on job, career and recruiting, but also a cultural change in the choice of employer. As the largest employer of federal, state and local authorities, the public sector is becoming increasingly popular for young professionals and high potentials because of the wide variety of employment opportunities and professions in socially relevant areas.

The Careers Day of the Smart Country Convention is aimed at students, graduates, postgraduates and young professionals who are given the unique opportunity to find out about versatile professions and the best career opportunities in public administration and meet their future employers.

Whether speed recruiting, guided tours, coaching or networking, the Careers Day is your springboard to the public sector. You will get direct contact to top employers of the public sector and the digital economy. Be part of the SCCON Careers Day on 29 October 2020 and exchange ideas with recruiters. Admission is free!
