COMPANY DATING

This initiative was inspired by the romantic concept of speed dating, and promotes a lively meeting (10 min 'speed interview´ per student) between companies and candidates - welcomed in an informal and relaxed atmosphere with coffee, music and candlelight’s. Because sometimes it does not take more than a cup of coffee and a chit-chat to find out if a company and a potential employee match.

Every Wednesday afternoon

CAREER NETWORKING DAY

Replacing the traditional job fair, twice a year we organize an event called “CAREER NETWORKING DAY”. This is a hybrid event with four distinct formats (company dating | mentor dating | masterclass | brainstorming), bringing together students, alumni, academic staff, career professionals and companies. Focusing on reciprocal partnerships and strong relationships with stakeholders, we want to transform our office into hubs of connectivity and provide tailored solutions/services.
