Caterpillar Careers on display at bauma 2013

Caterpillar and Cat® dealer Zeppelin were at bauma Munich 2013 from April 15-21 exhibiting more than 70 Cat machines highlighting our focus on productivity, fuel economy and sustainability.

Something else was on display for the first time - Caterpillar careers. The 2013 show was the first time the Caterpillar HR/Europe, Africa, Middle East (EAME) Recruitment Organization attended and they did so alongside Zeppelin in the main hall. The objectives of the careers stand were to advertise the Caterpillar Careers website and attract mid-career hires for the future.

The EAME Attract team coordinated a group from various locations across Europe and America to coordinate the event. The event was a great success for the team, with more than 1,700 career brochures taken by visitors to bauma, and more than 120 visitors to the Caterpillar Recruitment stand to discuss career opportunities.

In total, 69 candidates added their resumes and profiles to the bauma job opening, and 99 gave their contact details - 66 of which were engineers.

Caterpillar must make attracting the Best Team a top priority - and be successful at it globally. The EAME HR team's creative approach to recruiting was focused on building our talent pipeline in this important region, ensuring the right people and information is in place to identify and select the best talent.
