KIT Career Fair

FAQ for Job-Seekers

The KIT Career Fair is the company contact fair that KIT organises for its students, doctoral candidates and alumni. The fair, which takes place once a year, is organised by the Career Service & Alumni department. The KIT Career Service offers an extensive programme of advice, workshops and seminars before and during the fair. Throughout the year, the KIT Career Service is also the first point of contact for students, doctoral candidates and alumni of KIT with questions about applications and career entry.

The KIT Career Fair traditionally takes place in May. The next fair will be held as an online event on May 4th and 5th, 2021 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.


The KIT Career Fair is a major project with a lot of lead time - from the conception of the offer to the acquisition of the exhibitors to the implementation on site, a good year always goes by. That is why we have to decide at an early stage what the upcoming trade fair should look like. The development of the corona pandemic, which is difficult to estimate, and the positive experience with the first virtual KIT Career Fair@home 2020 have encouraged us to offer a purely virtual event for 2021 as well. This gives everyone involved and interested parties planning security at an early stage and enables us to improve the format further.
