JOBtotal in Ingolstadt

Schirm offers a wide variety of job and career opportunities


The Saturn Arena in Ingolstadt becomes the central meeting point for issues related to jobs, training and career opportunities in the autumn every year. The JOBtotal fair opened its doors for the seventh time this year with more than 80 exhibitors – many of them SMEs from the local region – and about 6,000 visitors. The well-established fair organised by the German Labour Agency in Ingolstadt provides ideal opportunities for all those looking for a job or training place, those wishing to change jobs, those returning to work after a period of absence as well as those actively involved in further training schemes to make contact with representatives of companies in person and obtain some information about training positions or job vacancies.

Our Schirm site “Baar-Ebenhausen” attended the JOBtotal fair once again too. The team from the site, consisting of Human Resources Specialist, Janina Junghans, Katharina Fasold, a trainer for chemical laboratory technicians, and Michael Simson, Head of Production, were very positive about the day. “Our exhibitor stand was a huge success. Pupils from schools in particular obtained information about the varied range of training opportunities at Schirm. The clear favourites were the training places for chemical laboratory technicians and industrial management assistants. However, the demand for training as a chemical technician or as a machine and plant operator increased appreciably too. We were able to distribute more than 100 training brochures to the visitors and held excellent discussions with potential trainees,” says Janina Junghans.

Schirm has already made definite plans to attend the JOBtotal fair in Ingolstadt again in the autumn next year. A team from Baar-Ebenhausen will also participate in the Vocatium on 24 - 25 June 2020 for the first time. This fair is also held in Ingolstadt and Anja Karliczek, the German Minister for Education and Research, is its patron. The forum is primarily geared towards school pupils and is designed to inform them about their choice of career and training opportunities. As many as 3,000 visitors are expected to attend. “We’re already very excited about being involved in the Vocatium for the first time and we’ll naturally be attending the JOBtotal again in October too. Both these fairs provide an ideal opportunity for us to show that we can offer young people sound training with a future perspective and that the region is not just home to large corporations,” Janina Junghans continues.
