Several of EADS's top bosses are at ILA this week to persuade students to consider a career with Europe's largest aerospace player.

The company is dedicating a 200m2 (2,150ft2) pavilion to its recruitment activities and wants to "meet young people from all over Europe" in 20 workshops designed to showcase its business.

Those appearing at the seminars include chief executive Louis Gallois and chief technology officer Jean Botti, who will "share their vision" of the group's future with engineering students.

All EADS units will host sessions. Airbus will discuss its work on eco-efficiency and its impact on aircraft design and manufacturing. Many disciplines will be catered for, including finance, "proving the group is not only interested in engineering profiles", says EADS.

Thorsten Möllmann, head of employment strategy and operations, says ILA will be "an occasion for students to discover what it's like to work for EADS". He says visitors will have a chance to talk to recruiters, sign up for an internship or even be hired on the spot.
