To meet the needs of companies that are looking for German-speaking talents, here is the delicate mission performed by Moovijob while organizing the 1st edition of the recruitment fair « Luxembourg in Germany ». Overall, 29 Luxembourgish companies participated and 1004 profiles were invited: the organization team is pleased to have successfully met the expectations.

While the Luxembourg job market has regain its dynamism, recruitment problems remain just as frequent, and the five-legged sheep syndrome is becoming more and more common among recruiters. Among the most sought-after skills - and the most complex to find - speaking German must be top tier. Being one of the official languages of the country, German is still in high demand in Luxembourg. As an example, the language is requested in 26% of the job offers currently posted on the jobboard

In order to attract these German-speaking profiles, Moovijob had to use considerable resources to carry out a national communication campaign with a simple yet effective baseline: "Luxembourg is looking for you!" Trier, Saarbrücken, Kaiserslautern, Karlsruhe, Frankfurt, Köln, Mannheim, München, Berlin... are some of the cities that were targeted by the organizers.

As for the candidates, no less than 1,613 people registered to participate in this event. Following the pre-selection process carried out by Moovijob in order to guarantee the language skills of the participants, 1,004 people were invited to this virtual fair. The videoconferences between recruiters and candidates were held continuously from 1pm to 8pm.

The first reactions from participating companies are very positive and several dozen interviews have already been scheduled, proving the success of this virtual event. 

This event closes the 2021 calendar of Moovijob on a high note. The company is now preparing for the return of its major recruitment fair, Moovijob Day Luxembourg, to be held on March 25 at LuxExpo.
