Job placement program for Saudi students in Germany intensifies
More than 50 Saudi students participated in the second job forum at the Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Frankfurt
More than 50 Saudi students participated in the second job forum at the Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Frankfurt.
The event was organized by the German Saudi Arabian Liaison Office for Economic Affairs (AHK Saudi Arabia) in order to place Saudi students studying at German universities in German companies in Saudi Arabia.
In collaboration with the Saudi Consulate General in Frankfurt and the Cultural Department of the Saudi Arabian Embassy in Berlin, AHK Saudi Arabia continues its initiative for Saudi students which started in Hanover in 2013. The Delegate of German Industry and Commerce for Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Yemen, Andreas Hergenroether, S.E. Nabil Ashri, the Consul General of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Director General International Affairs of the CCI Frankfurt Dr. Jürgen Ratzinger welcomed the students to discuss internships and job opportunities in German companies in the Kingdom.
The students came from all over Germany to Frankfurt to participate in the event and to learn about the great prospects German companies offer their employees. Three of Germany’s largest investors in KSA took part in the event — Detecon represented by its CEO Dirk Doerrschuck, Thyssen Krupp, represented by its Director Human Resources & Administration Joachim Kell and Siemens, represented by the Head of Talent acquisition Mohamed Awad. Hergenroether also promoted the online tool JobXchange on the AHK website which is the first port-of-call for recruiters and job seekers due to AHK’s key role in bilateral trade relations offering full-cycle recruitment support.
JobXchange is an electronic platform to enable fast, efficient and professional search for personnel. JobXchange works both ways: for companies looking for talents and individuals looking for job or internship opportunities in Saudi Arabia.
"We have set up this first internship program for Saudi students studying in Germany in order to support them to identify job opportunities in German companies in KSA.
