Every other year, the canton Basel-Landschaft and the Chamber of Commerce Baselland jointly organise a career fair (Berufsmesse) in Pratteln. In the years in-between, Basel-Stadt hosts its career and education fair in the exhibition halls of Messe Basel. The cantons of Aargau and Solothurn also organise alternating career fairs. Posters and invitations are sent to schools to inform them of these popular information and networking events.
The career and education fairs give an overview of the full range of professional and educational opportunities. Their purpose is to highlight possible development and career tracks, allow teenagers to interact with corporations and enhance the appeal of vocational training. Issues regarding their career and their future are extremely important to teenagers. The personal contacts and conversations that take place at the career fairs are particularly valuable, where teenagers get to meet professionals, but also young people in training. The fairs are also an opportunity to get some hands-on experience with applications, processes and equipment.
