These and many other questions asked by young people at the start of their careers in the jewelry and watch-making industry will be answered on Monday, 15 February. In order to provide young professionals with guidance and to facilitate their start into working life, INHORGENTA MUNICH organizes a Career Day which will celebrate its premiere in 2016. Klaus Dittrich, Chairman and CEO of Messe München, comments on the promising career prospects as follows: “With an annual turnover of nearly five billion euros, the jewelry and watches sector offers a myriad of interesting possibilities of entering a career. As international industry platform, INHORGENTA MUNICH additionally furnishes an ideal setting for companies from Germany and abroad to present themselves as attractive employers and persuade young talents to join them.”
