The Jobsiade Fountain is located on Husemannplatz in Bochum. The fountain was donated by Deutsche Bank and opened to the public in 1987. The artist Karl Ulrich Nuss refers to the examination scene of the Jobsiade by Carl Arnold Kortum. The group of figures consists of five people: the self-confident but highly clueless theology student Jobs, three examiners and a night watchman. In 2013, the fountain was sprayed with white lacquer by vandals. In 2018, one of the bronze figures was sprayed with gold lacquer.
