PTA presents itself at akademika as a sustainable employer with exciting entry opportunities

PTA experiences two successful days with positive discussions and the victory in the Battle for Talent

The job fair akademika took place again in Augsburg on 21 and 22 November. In addition to companies such as Microsoft, Brunel, hays and T-Systems, PTA GmbH from Mannheim was also present. The IT consulting company was not only able to hold positive discussions with interested graduates, but also to convince them of its capabilities in the “Battle for Talent”.

akademika is the job fair for young academics

Twice a year numerous exhibitors from the leading industries present themselves at akademika. The job fair offers an excellent opportunity for university graduates and young academics to get in touch with companies and sound out career prospects.

A tried and tested special feature at the fair is “akademika Highlighted”, where exhibitors and interested parties receive stickers in matching colours. This enables graduates to see directly which company has needs in which areas. This not only provides important clues as to whether an exhibitor is a potential employer, but also makes it easier for them to start discussions with each other. At the same time, exhibitors can also see immediately whether a candidate is a good match for the company in terms of his or her specialist skills.

PTA wins Battle for Talent

The PTA was not only able to enjoy two successful days at the fair, but was also able to celebrate the victory in the “Battle for Talent”, which akademika organised for the first time. Interested companies were able to register for these in advance and thus take advantage of another opportunity to draw attention to themselves as employers.

Five companies competed against each other in five rounds of the “Battle for Talent”. In each round a question was asked, to which the companies were each allowed to answer for one minute. The audience could then decide who gave the best answer. The PTA was able to convince in three out of five rounds and thus prevail over companies such as Capgemini or the German Aerospace Center. The PTA has thus shown that it is also an interesting employer for university graduates.
