The employers, including automotive company Volkswagen, are offering trainee programmes and summer internships at the fair. Volkswagen, for instance, is seeking a 100 expert workers for its Slovak factories.

Special attention is paid to those who find it harder to get a job for various reasons. Non-profit organisations and civil activists have prepared workshops and lectures targeting vulnerable groups. 

The fair is open until February 26 and the admission is free.
