DaimlerChrysler is visiting universities in Europe in a move to tempt graduates into careers in the US-German carmaker. Its 'Europe Tour 2001' will visit Imperial College, London on November 22/23.
During the tour DaimlerChrysler is visiting eight European universities and business schools between October 22 and November 28, 2001 and providing information about the 'attractive and global' career prospects in the company.
Jill Palmer, DaimlerChrysler UK's head of human resources, said: "We want to win over the best junior executives for DaimlerChrysler, because we need highly qualified employees worldwide. We're involved in intense competition in the market for graduates. So we're continually adopting new approaches to get top graduates interested in our company early on."
The DaimlerChrysler "Europe Tour 2001" is visiting eight cities, Milan, Stockholm, Barcelona, Eindhoven, Darmstadt, Paris, Zürich and London.
In addition to the company presentation and the comments of experts on current topics, graduates also hear about the various ways to become part of the company and the career opportunities at DaimlerChrysler. There are also opportunities to talk with managers and junior staff members from various company departments about their careers so far and their experiences in the company.
In 2001, DaimlerChrysler will probably hire approximately 2,700 university graduates worldwide, 70% of them engineers.
