What is a SpaceJobFair?
A SpaceJobFair is our one-three day flagship event. As with every job fair, the goal is to give candidates access to internship and job opportunities, and to get insights from recruiters and professionals. The SpaceJobFair is open to the public, which means there are no requirements other than to be registered.
How is a SpaceJobFair program set up?
The program is a mix of workshops, trainings, company introductions, panels and networking opportunities. As we accommodate exhibitors ideas, we introduce new topics to the agenda as they seem to create additional value. However, each SpaceJobFair is slightly different.
Who is it for?
The SpaceJobFair is intended to be a place for everybody interested in a career in the Space industry. Our goal is to create more awareness about opportunities and showcase candidate success stories to inspire future generations.
Who do you work with?
Companies like HE Space, Sobriety, ESA BIC Prague, RHEA Group, Inmarsat, Airbus, OHB Czechspace, satsearch, and IBM among others supported and attended our events in the past.
How did you have the idea to create SpaceJobFair?
It started at the International Space University with the intention to bring job opportunities to students.
Are there other events like yours?
There are companies and agencies organising similar events. But SpaceJobFair is the first and only independent event with an exclusive focus on career and leadership development for the Space industry. To date, all combined events exposed more than 5.500 students, graduates, and professionals to space job offers and company profiles.
Are you hosting online events?
Yes definitely. We provide preparation workshops, trainings, and company presentations online. We also live stream some of our SpaceJobFairs. This, however, will not give you the same feeling as attending the events directly. The real power of SpaceJobFairs is to get immersed and talk to truly amazing people.
What is the best way to prepare for the event?
Get your documents (resume, cover letters, references) updated and bind them together. Understand what do you want and which companies / job positions you are looking for. Think about what you can add to a company and how you can support them building better products. Check out our preparation workshops and additional workshops here https://careercenter.space. Consider getting a haircut, the first impression still counts.
