InnoTrans Career Concept

Career & Education

If you are a student or young professional with an interest in rail transport then why not take the opportunity to visit next InnoTrans from 18 to 21 September 2018 on the Berlin Exhibition Grounds? This is where you can meet global players, small and medium-sized enterprises, trade associations and universities, find out about the latest job and training vacancies and how to put together the perfect job application.

At last InnoTrans around 100 exhibitors participated in our Career Concept and made a major contribution to supporting young people in the rail transport technology sector. Furthermore, in 2016 some 3,500 students from Germany and abroad, including from China, the US, Japan and Sweden, visited InnoTrans to make first contact and ensure a successful start to their career.

Supported by

The Career & Education Hall 7.1c is the place to head at InnoTrans. This is where companies and associations who support young people and wish to make direct contact with you will be represented. It is where you can meet prospective future employers, visit lectures by exhibitors at the Career Forum and find out about the latest job vacancies on our Job Wall. All these opportunities are available in the Career & Education Hall under the heading ’Creating a successful future together’.


Inside the Career & Education Hall the place to visit is the Career Pavilion. This is where you can find human resource experts from companies who, besides exhibiting in one of the 41 halls, will have information on careers and opportunities with them. In the run-up to InnoTrans you can find out about exhibitors from our Virtual Market Place® and afterwards meet personnel managers directly at the trade fair, where you can make an impression and convince them you are the right person for a job in their company.

Currently registered for the Career Pavilion at InnoTrans 2018:


At lectures and panel discussions exhibitors will have information on their company, career prospects and opportunities.

The Career Point is also a part of our Career Concept, and wherever you are at the trade fair it will act as a signpost pointing the way. If you see the Career Point logo on an exhibitor’s stand area then this is where you can obtain information about opportunities in that company. You can also use the InnoTrans app and Virtual Market Place® at your leisure to put together your own personal tour of Career Point exhibitors. At InnoTrans 2016 the stand areas of about 60 exhibitors bore the Career Point logo.

Career Point
Career Tours

Daily guided tours are another service for students, and they are free! The Career Tours will stop in on the stand areas of exhibitors with the Career Point logo. Qualified partners will have information on their respective company as well as job and career prospects. This will provide a perfect opportunity to make first contact with exhibitors and arrange a personal meeting on the company’s stand later on.

Registration for the Career Tours will be open from August 2018.

Our Job Wall in the Career & Education Hall has the latest job vacancies from every exhibitor at a glance. Get an overview of rail industry job offers in Germany and abroad and meet up directly with the respective personnel managers to talk about interesting vacancies.

The online job market at the Virtual Market Place® is the ideal way to prepare for a meeting ahead of InnoTrans. As of summer 2018 this is where you will find all available job vacancies.

Job Wall

In case you are already in search of a job in the rail transport sector then why not take a look at the ’Rail jobs’ website, a project organised by Allianz pro Schiene e.V., where there are more than 4,000 job vacancies on offer.
