WROCLAW CAREER EXPO 2012 JOB FAIR NEW DIMENSION The Company Career EXPO Poland ( and simultaneously the job fairs Wroclaw Career EXPO) was officially founded on 1 June 2012. It was for us extremely intensive half-year, filled with hard work, negotiations, consistently implemented plans, as well as implementation of the new ones, often risky ideas. For several years, we have been watching polish and foreign market - a lot of unused golden opportunities and so many mistakes had been a pretext to introduce something new and fresh to the job fair segment. The event like Wroclaw Career EXPO. This happening is in many ways different from the other trades. One of the most important changes was the way out of the campusesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; area to a neutral object<bez przecinka> which had to influence (and in fact influenced) on the diversity profile of visitors. According to statistics, Wroclaw Career EXPO was visited by approximately 70% of students and just-graduates, but also about 30% of professionals who had already gained their work experience. Another innovation that we have introduced - a need for registration - was supposed to be a perfect remedy for the casual visitors â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with a full consciousness we can say that anyone who visited the exhibition on November 14 knew what they are and how should they be prepared for them. At the same time we established the exact number of registered participants - 3007. This fact gives us a strong basis for planning another events and performing reliable statistics. We have also a possibility to have contact with every single participant which gives us a brand new opportunities and challenges in the future. We are very proud of the fact that we have won the trust of both visitors and businesses, and that our event resulted in mutual satisfaction. Above all, we are pleased that the success that we have achieved gives us a strong basis for continuous improvement and making the Wroclaw Career EXPO in the near future - we are sure of that- will become the market leader in job fairs. The only one which has a positive effect on the competitiveness of similar events and sets the highest quality standards. The next edition is scheduled for 9 April 2013. As a result of the fact that the event has become quite popular we will also change its location - it will be hold in the main building of the Centennial Hall.

OPINIONS OF COMPANIES: These job fairs are one of the best organized ones I’ve ever been to. Małgorzata Zawada, PwC What is most appreciated in cooperation with the Career EXPO organizers is primarily their openness, commitment and a great attitude of "everything is possible ", by which we were able to jointly complete all objectives assigned to the project.

We evaluate ver y positively our participation in the Career EXPO and the whole cooperation with the organizers of the job fairs. Success of fairs resulted not only in the wide promotion of the event and the great interest of participants, but also the professional approach to the business partner. Getin Noble Bank

Skillfully and consistently maintained dialogue with the media is one of the most effective promotion tools. For the purposes of promotion of Wroclaw Career EXPO we were in constant contact with approximately 500 journalists from more than 200 editors from the Lower Silesia and the entire Poland. Press releases about the event were delivered regularly, which resulted in numerous publications, mainly in the local and student media. We cooperated closely with seventeen media (Gazeta Wroclawska, Biznes Dolnoslaski, Eurostudent, HRStandard, Employer Branding Institute, GoldenLine,,,,,,, ESKA, AMS, Te l e w i z j a D o l n o s l a s k a T E D E , K a m p u s T V ,, giving most of them the title of our Media Partner. Their task was greater involvement in the promotion, such as placing banners on their websites, sending newsletters containing information about Wroclaw Career EXPO, or publishing dedicated graphics.


The total number of those publications in the media was more than 200, including:




105 - mentions on the Internet 90 - radio emissions 5 - mentions in the press 2 - reports in the television

The list of all the publications can be found

Due to activities on the Internet in a few months <bez ‘around’> Wroclaw Career EXPO began to create large, engaged community of young and ambitious people. Every day we dialogue with them throught a few social media channels. In less than four months our Facebook profile liked nearly 1300 people, a group of dozens of experts keeps our actions on GoldenLine, we do not resign even from a bit less popular in Poland: Twitter, Google Plus and LinkedIn. Keeping interest in the event has also taken place in student services and industry, as well as forums and universities. A week before the event we launched a movie promoting it, which at the same time started Wroclaw Career Expo’s channel on Youtube. After a while it turned out that one of the Internet users voluntarily developed their individual concept for a movie that promotes our job fairs.

Both movies you can see on our channel:
