INHORGENTA MUNICH Career Day
The first-ever INHORGENTA MUNICH Career Day took place at INHORGENTA MUNICH 2016. For young designers or graduates from the jewelry sector it was a fantastic new opportunity to kick start their career.
At our Career Day, graduates from design schools and colleges could find out how best to embark upon a career in the industry. This event run alongside the main trade fair, meaning qualified candidates could meet and talk with potential employers face-to-face.
We were working in cooperation with associations and institutions to put on lectures, interactive exercises, and role-play interviews to prepare the industry's next generation for their new career.
