ABOUT THE CAREERSDAY

Thursday February 7th 2019 Career Services from Utrecht University organizes her 12th edition of the Careersday. A day on which ambitious students, companies and organizations of different disciplines get to know each other and make connections. The Careersday offers a multidisciplinary academic platform for an optimal match between students and your company or organization.

By participating in the Careersday, your name and brand will be better known by every student through email and social media before and during the day. Besides that, you will speak with a lot of different students during the different parts of the day. Students take part to orient themselves on their possibilities on the job market. Additionally, there are a lot of students searching for an internship or starter function, depending on whether they are a bachelor- or master student.

PARTS OF THE CAREERSDAY

The event consists of various elements, such as workshops, interviews, a business market and more.

Business market

With a stand you can make your brand and name visible at this market and personally meet students and provide information about internship- and graduation opportunities or career perspectives within your organization. This is an excellent way to present everything your company has to offer and address a big number of students in an informal way.

The available space per stall will be 3 to 2 meters large. We can provide you with different materials and of course you are welcome to bring your own material (e.g. flyers, banners, etc.) as long as it fits within your assigned area.

Workshops

Do you want to attract more students through a more substantive approach? Then you can invite a personally selected group of students for a workshop which lasts 60 or 120 minutes. Students especially appreciate the combination of information and practice in a workshop. So first a short presentation about your company or organization and then a practical case or exercise with which they practice a professional skill which is important in your organization, like pitching, giving feedback or negotiation. These workshops offer capacity to 20 to 100 students.

Individual interviews

Would you like to talk to specific students? This is possible by reserving a number of individual interviews (maximum of 6). The students send their LinkedIn-profile and resume with their application for the Careersday. From this a selection can be made.

Job board

This year there will also be a job board at the careers day where you can show your own vacancies and internships. It is also possible to put them on our website. If you would like to use this, please send us an email.

Customization

If the offered parts do not fully meet your wishes, it is possible to contact us about this. We are happy to help you think about other possibilities. A few examples of additions are:

  • Extra promotion of your organization on our website and/or social media.

  • Addition of extra promotion material on the Careersday.
