Immerse yourself in the world of jobs
After a two-year break due to the pandemic, the cross-border EuRegio job information fair BIM is taking place again today as a live event. For visitors, the 32nd “BIM” offers an unprecedented variety of experiences and information, as project manager Stefanie Thim from the EuRegio Salzburg-Berchtesgadener Land-Traunstein promises in a press release. Bavarian companies and educational institutions from the EuRegio area also contribute to this. Well over 200 exhibitors from western Austria and the neighboring region of southern Bavaria have registered.
At “WorldSkills”: Experience the world’s best young professionals live
Visitors to “BIM” can look forward to a huge range of experiences and information. Among other things, the education and career orientation fair is the stage for the world skills championships called “WorldSkills Competition 2022 Special Edition Austria” (www.skillsaustria.at). From November 23rd to 27th, around 150 international World Championship starters, accompanied by their experts and teams, from around 40 WorldSkills member countries are expected. “The skills competitions offer the unique opportunity to look over the shoulder of the world’s best specialists in seven professions at work,” says Lukas Mang from the Salzburg Chamber of Commerce, chief organizer of the career information fair: “A great thing for them Trade fair visitors and a great honor for us as trade fair organizers.”
Another highlight of the “BIM” are the six “Just try it out!” stations. Visitors can test their talent and skills there and try out activities in various professions for themselves. For example, at the Milwaukee station, you have the option of using a variety of cordless tools to cut metal or sand wood. “It has always been the strength of ‘BIM’ that visitors can also lend a hand at the stands.
You should definitely take part in the “BIM application route” on Friday afternoon and Saturday. Visitors have the opportunity to complete all the steps to a successful application, accompanied by experts. The offer ranges from a professional check of the CV or application documents to free styling and the creation of an application photo. “We are pleased that we can make this attractive offer together with our trade fair partners. All services are free of charge and are certainly a great help for our visitors,” emphasizes chief organizer Mang.

It includes, among other things, extensive information on apprenticeships and internships, a contact area for exhibitors, a dynamic hall plan including a planning tool for visiting the trade fair and a regional filter that sorts exhibitors by distance to their place of residence.
