Need a Job or Career? #PAS13


Liebherr-Aerospace distributed a press release today about what it would be highlighting at the Paris Air Show. While I would like to see the Airbus A350 flight control components and the main/nose landing gear on the new Bombardier CSeries at its stand, what really captured my attention appeared further down in the release. 

I haven't seen these two subjects appear in a pre-Paris announcement:

1. "As a future-oriented employer, Liebherr-Aerospace is always looking for highly qualified and committed employees. From June 21-23, the system supplier will therefore take part in a career fair" in the Concorde hall of the Musee de l'Air. Not only is Liebherr promoting its company and career opportunities, it also is "offering interested visitors the chance to establish contacts." In my mind, that's not just saying come take a brochure and provide us your email. "Establish contacts" sounds like a real opportunity.

2. In the next paragraph, the company says it "will present the profession of a welder in the L'Avion des Metiers campaign by the French Aerospace Industry Association GIFAS... to get young people, in particular, interested in this demanding job." I will be interested to see how Liebherr does this. With France's unemployment rate rising according to this CNN Money article, this could be an interesting draw.
