ILA2008: Aviation and space industries creating employment

May 16, 2008

ILA Career Center presents vocational opportunities in the hi-tech sector on 30 and 31 May.

According to the BDLI President Dr. Thomas Enders, although there has been an upturn in the aviation and space industries there is still a shortage of suitably qualified specialists and engineers. As Enders also stated at the annual press conference of the German Aerospace Industries Association (BDLI) at the end of April in Berlin, the member companies of the BDLI are planning to “create jobs for almost 4,000 engineers and 2,000 skilled workers in 2008. Furthermore there are some 900 vacancies in our industry which cannot be filled at the present time.” In the medium term Enders believes that this poses a threat to Germany’s position as a major location for the industry. In view of this situation the ILA2008 acquires particular importance in its efforts to encourage newcomers to this sector.

On 30 and 31 May the Career Center at the ILA2008 will provide a special service for anyone considering a future in the aerospace industry, whether currently still at school or university, at the start of their careers or already specialists in their own fields: The Career Center in Hall 6a offers them all an opportunity to obtain in-depth details about career openings and to make direct contact with future employers such as Airbus and EADS, Air Berlin and Lufthansa, MTU and Rolls-Royce. The patron of the Career Center is Michael Glos, Federal Minister for Economics and Technology.

With more than 50 participating companies and institutions all available space at the Career Center has already been reserved. The programme will be rounded off by various papers, company presentations and advice on how to successfully submit job applications. The growth sectors of aviation and space are a powerful factor in the creation of jobs in the fascinating high-tech field and will offer numerous career opportunities for qualified staff over the coming years. Representatives of business and politics, as well as trainees and test pilots, will be speaking about the complex and varied kinds of employment available in the aviation and space industries. The latest programme details can be found on the internet at www.ila-berlin.com/careercenter.

Useful tip: a prize draw on the website www.ila-berlin.com/ila2008/ careercenter/ offers a chance to win tickets to attend one of the two Career Center days.
