  • When is the best time to come to the fair and what are the highlights of the day?
    The job fair will be open all day long – 7 hours non-stop. We advise you to come early in the morning or right before 12:00 if you don’t want to meet many recruiters.

You can find this program on the Conference section of the official website.
  • How do I get to the fair?
    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. LuxExpo the Box is in the Kirchberg area. If you come by train, you can take the bus 1, 18 – Stop «LuxExpo Sud» or 16, 120, 125 – Stops Kirchberg, JFK (300m).  If you want to come by car, you can park in the LuxExpo car park (Parking South & Nord) or in the Auchan car park. If you see flying banners at the entrance of a big building, on a wide place, you have reached your destination!

    You can access the restauration point on site during the day. Otherwise, you can go to Auchan (3min walk) and choose between the 16 restaurants and snacks proposed.
  • Is there wifi on site?
    There is no wifi on site but don’t forget that roaming is no longer a thing in Europe. You can now use your phone data in Luxembourg with no additional fees.
  • Can I print CV/resume on site?
    You will be able to print and copy your documents at the entry of the fair with Image Center.

After the event:

  • How to optimize my chances of being contacted after the job fair?
    The key is to contact before being contacted! 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. Then, collect as many business cards as possible to send an email to the recruiter after the fair. We advise you to wait at least one day before sending your email, then a few days after sending another one.
  • Why the recruiters ask me to register once again on their career website?
    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.
