Agritechnica 2015 – the source for agri-talents

Campus & Career – new at Agritechnica


As the world’s premium and biggest international event for the agri-machinery and equipment sector, Agritechnica offers immense potential for meeting the right people – in the form of talent and career opportunities – for tomorrow’s increasingly technology driven commercial agriculture sector.

For the first time this year, organiser DLG will host a complete career section for job-seekers at all levels. Campus & Career will function as a one-stop career orientation centre on everything related to jobs, training, skills upgrading and career resilience, as well as technical research and development in the agriculture sector. It will also feature an on-site recruitment fair where job-seekers, mid-career professionals or anyone interested in exploring new opportunities can interact with different companies at the different stands and find out more about the company’s brands and current job offers.

“We are thrilled to introduce this new segment Campus & Career at Agritechnica this year,” says Nathalie Joest, who manages the Campus & Career at Agritechnica. “The agriculture sector is truly at the most exciting stage where technology applications are concerned. You name it – in the field of robotics, electronics, global positioning or precision engineering – we have been seeing nothing but a steady uptrend in the use of cutting-edge technologies invented specifically for agriculture. The search for skilled talent and personnel of varied experience and transferable skills is now more critical than ever,” adds Joest.

Technical programme with relevant seminars topics

Campus & Career will feature a technical programme featuring a red sofa for live discussions, setting the stage for an inviting and interactive forum. There will also be specific areas dedicated to career counselling and advice for mid-career professionals, or those looking to make a career transition in their 40s and above. The forum will also feature tips on how to stay relevant in the job market and how to avoid a burn-out, and address the topic of adapting to the rapid changes in today’s job market and industry needs.

Complementing the programme will be familiar segments such as Young Farmers Day, the Campus where universities will present relevant academic or vocational programs for the agri sector, and the DLG Career and Profession Advisory Service.

“Our hope is for Campus & Career to be an interactive, lively and real place. A place where businesses can have a platform to brand themselves in the job market for talent, and where anyone wishing to check out the latest employment trends can do so with ease, ask questions and speak to different companies for themselves, all in a conducive and congenial environment,” adds Joest.

The Campus & Career Lounge, a dedicated area with meeting rooms, will be made available for free to companies exhibiting at Campus & Career, for personal discussions between interested parties. Participating companies can also take advantage of a full suite of services for advertising their recruitment intentions:

- Advertisements and advertorials in Germany’s top career magazine for the agriculture sector, DLG-Mitteilungen, including the Campus & Career catalogue

- Job advertisements on the Job Wall at Campus & Career

  • Brand building through sponsoring opportunities:

Companies interested in showcasing their recruitment opportunities at Campus & Career are invited to contact Nathalie Joest on with their expression of interest.
