Career Calling ’10

In 2010, VIG once again participated in Austria’s largest career fair, “Career Calling ’10”. Organised by the zBp Career Centre at the Vienna University of Economics and Business, this recruiting event brings top national and international companies together with students, graduates and young professionals in the areas of business, science and technology. The career fair attracted 5,000 visitors this year. The focus of the presentation was VIG as a Group. All of the individual companies were given the opportunity to present themselves at the VIG stand by means of company brochures, recruiting materials and advertisements for vacant positions. The attendance at the fair was accompanied by advertising in the print media, e.g. in the Career Magazine of zBp and the Job Fair Roundup of the “Der Standard” daily newspaper.

Balkan Case Challenge (BCC) – Identification and promotion of talented young students

In its search for talented young students with international backgrounds and extensive language skills, VIG supports the Balkan Case Challenge, a competition for talented students from twelve South Eastern European countries organised each year by the World University Service (WUS). The students develop and present a realistic case study during the competition. The BCC is a unique platform offering the chance to meet young, dedicated individuals from South Eastern Europe. Discussions with the top students from the region were continued in the “South Eastern Europe Career Day” organised by the Austrian Chamber of Commerce.
