CeBIT aims at shortfall in IT professionals

February 25, 2008

Running from 8 to 9 March, the 'IT-Fitness-Campus' will use an engaging and entertaining approach to show students, schoolchildren and trainees how to get the most out of computers and the Internet.

With 43,000 positions yet to be filled in Germany alone, skilled IT professionals are hot property. That's why Ernst Raue - the Deutsche Messe Board Member in charge of CeBIT - believes it is essential that this tradeshow harness its standing in the digital sector to help companies track down the specialists they so urgently require. CeBIT's wide-ranging recruitment portfolio - which has been designed specifically for the IT sector – is an important HR platform for employers and job applicants alike. A key aim of the show is to get future generations fired-up about a career in IT.

The new 'IT-Fitness-Campus' will be introducing young people to the benefits of a career in IT and getting them in shape for the labour market. Running from 8 to 9 March in Hall 16, the 'IT-Fitness-Campus' will use an engaging and entertaining approach to show students, schoolchildren and trainees how to get the most out of computers and the Internet. The campus is a joint project run by Deutsche Messe and Initiative IT-Fitness, which was launched in November 2006 by Microsoft founder Bill Gates. Using online IT fitness tests and free training sessions, the project aims to get four million people in Germany up to speed on the use of PCs and the Internet by 2010.

The initiative 'Partnerschaft für Lehrstellen' (Partnership for Traineeships) in Hall 6 is working to improve the training opportunities available in the IT sector. The initiative hopes to secure more training places during CeBIT than ever before, and will be sending out 'traineeship hounds' to exhibitors to sniff out job vacancies and put them on the online traineeship exchange at http://www.lehrstellenfuchs.de/. This online portal also enables users to post their own training requests and search for available traineeships.
