Finally live again! After the Corona-related cancellation in 2020 and the digital edition in 2021, connect me went live again on September 22, 2022 at the campus of Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences in Kamp-Lintfort. And what a great event it was. More than forty companies were there and presented themselves to the students who came in large numbers. The organization team and the fair exhibitors were highly motivated and happy that finally again a live event was possible and one could come into the personal exchange.
On the eighth edition of the training fair the enterprise atmosphere was in the center of the discussion. It seems to play an increasingly important role for students when they start an apprenticeship at a company or institution. This was shown by the questions that the estimated 900 students asked the representatives of the companies. They were mainly ninth- and tenth-grade students, some of whom were about to graduate from high school. They came from the towns of Rheinberg and Neukirchen-Vluyn, Kamp-Lintfort and Moers, which are also home to the 45 companies and institutions that presented themselves.
The fair is also highly interesting for the many students at the Kamp-Lintfort campus. Here you can get an impression of the diversity of companies in the Lower Rhine region and find out where there are offers for student internships, jobs or support for bachelor’s or master’s theses. Thus, connect me is also an important offer to attract students in the wir4 region as junior staff.
The eighth round of connect me will be held in September 2023. We are already looking forward to it.
