Today on wednesday, September 7, 2022 the second job fair for ukrainian refugees was again well attended . At least 500 interested people gathered in the foyer of the World Trade Center over the morning to exchange ideas with HR managers from 35 companies and institutions. 20 interpreters provided support.
Social Mayor Dr. Kristin Klaudia Kaufmann: »Refugees should not only feel safe but also welcome in Dresden. A job or qualification can help to make good use of the stay in Germany despite all the stress and uncertainty. We had good experiences with the first job fair in May 2022 and as such both refugees and employers wanted to do it again.«
Some of the exhibitors from the first round have been able to conclude several employment contracts and are already participating for the second time. Overall, all the trade, industrial and service companies involved were satisfied with the course of the day. Katrin Meusinger, consultant for skilled workers at the »Silicon Saxony« association: »Saxony’s high-tech landscape offers a wide range of exciting job prospects. We attended the job fair for refugees for the second time in order to promote profiles particularly sought after by our more than 400 member companies and to give interested parties an understanding of the industries we represent.«
The event was organized by the Office for Economic Development of the City of Dresden in close cooperation with the Dresden Employment Agency. Supporters include the »Ukraine-Hilfe« network, the »TUDIAS« language school, Dresden International University, the »intap« Network and the »IQ« network.
