  2. Warning: (we never know) the job fair Unicareers.lu takes place in Luxembourg-city, in the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg, not at the Luxembourg Garden of Paris. Yes, this confusion is made every year! Luxembourg-city is well served with high-speed trains (TGV) at the Luxembourg rail station, an international airport, but also buses, cabs and public bikes. Luxembourg Congrès is in the Kirchberg area. If you come by train, you can take the bus lines 1, 125, 16, 8, CN4, 38 and stop at the station: Philharmonie or Mudam. You will see the Philharmonie, a big white building which looks like an organ. Luxembourg Congrès is just behind the Philarmonie. If you see flying banners at the entrance of a big building, on a wide place, you have reached your destinations! (Back to the main menu)
  3. You can park around Luxembourg Congrès in the parking lots: Trois Glands, Place de l’Europe, Adenauer, Coque 1 and 2, but also in the Shopping Mall Auchan, which is free during the first three hours, but farther from Luxembourg Congrès. (Buses can bring you back to Place de l’Europe). Here is the full list of the parking lots and the prices. (Back to the main menu)
  4. If the closest surrounding parking lots are full, we advise you to park in the free parking called: P+R (Park & Ride), in the suburb areas of the city. Those parking lots are served by buses. The closest parking for the job fair is P+R Kirchberg on Boulevard Konrad Adenauer. Here are all the P+R in Luxembourg. (Back to the main menu)
  5. To help you organize your visit in Luxembourg, we thought about a Facebook event for you to exchange about car sharing. Click on this link to see if there is a path for you or to offer one. (Back to the main menu)

  6. There is no printer on site, so think about bringing enough CVs with you. Otherwise, there is a Mister Copy Avenue de la Liberté, next to the central train station. (Back to the main menu)
How to prepare for the career fair:
  1. We often hear this question: what is in for me at a job fair? Here are the reasons: you meet many recruiters and sometimes, companies you never heard about within a few hours, you put a face to a name, you gather information, and you can stand out, apply or train yourself for your next interviews. Tell yourself, it’s a first meeting. You are not going to have a real interview so find out what are the high flags and the job opportunities for these companies. After the fair, you will have to get back to the recruiters and be ready for an interview, who knows? 🙂 (Back to the main menu)
  2. Shortlist the exhibitors you would like to meet. Check their job offers and prepare adapted CVs or cover letters for these opened positions to stand out on the D-day. (Back to the main menu)
  3. You always ask yourself, in which language you should address your application in Luxembourg? Well, there are many official languages: French, Luxembourgish and German. Depending on the branch of a company, its clients, or its collaborators, the spoken language will change. To know the needed language of your application, check the language used for the job offers, if it is French, then write in French, in English, then in English. You need to check also the languages required, even if the job offer is in English, it may be asked to work in Italian, so show that you do speak this language. To know more about the job offers at the fair, check the exhibitors section of the official website. (Back to the main menu)
  4. To know if the online job offers will still be available on the D-day at the job fair, we advise you to check if they are still online, or simply go to ask exhibitors. (Back to the main menu)
  5. To get the most out of this fair: target the exhibitors you are the most interested in. If a waiting line is shorter at another booth, pass it by first. This might not be the case afterwards. Do not forget that some recruiters will present conferences, this can be an opportunity to see what they should say and ask specific questions. (Back to the main menu)
How to approach exhibitors:
  1. Recruiters will often ask you to register on their career website. Why? Because it’s easier for them to manage your application with their software. They can get back to you whenever they have an interesting opportunity, while a piece of paper can be lost. (Back to the main menu)
  2. Be careful about empty booths between 12PM and 2PM. Recruiters might be having lunch! They meet hundreds of candidates during the day, a short break will do a world of goods, don’t you think? 😉 (Back to the main menu)
