    • 6th Munich Jobathlon on 7 December 2007 – Final date for entries on 11 November 2007

    • Seven leading companies in the Greater Munich area – Munich Re, Allianz, AUDI, BMW, EADS, HypoVereinsbank and Infineon – offer some 150 students an insight into the professional world of work

    Under the motto "Faster, higher, further: Top performance in the Munich area", future economists, lawyers, mathematicians, engineers, scientists and IT specialists will visit three of the seven financial services and engineering companies for a series of workshops, guided tours and presentations.

    Head of Human Resources, Dr. Peter Seemann: "The Munich Jobathlon is an ideal opportunity for companies and students alike. Young academics can gain a practical impression of working life and establish contacts with potential employers. At the same time, we as a company can get to know a lot of potential applicants in a very short time."

    Munich’s mayor Christian Ude and representatives of FC Bayern will be kicking off this year’s Jobathlon at City Hall. Students will then follow seven different routes, each one leading to three firms which will have roughly two hours to introduce students to the company and answer their questions.

    Rounding things off will be an evening get-together at which representatives from the companies and jobathletes can review the day’s events. Students will be able to talk directly with HR staff and establish important contacts for their professional career.

    The Munich Jobathlon recruiting initiative was launched in 2001 by "Münchener Arbeitskreis Personalmarketing" (MAP), a body representing the seven participating companies. Organiser of the event is the "bonding-studenteninitiative e.V.", an association run by volunteer students that has eleven university locations all over Germany. Their aim is to realise projects between universities and companies and so to link up theory and practice.

    Further information and application forms can be obtained up to 11 November at
