For students

Every year, the Careers Day is organized for students from Utrecht University. We want to show you what the possibilities are with your education (internships, side jobs, traineeships and starter jobs). Regardless of your studies or education phase, there are several interesting organizations present for each student. The Careers Day 2019 has an integrated programme.

You can connect with the present organizations on the Careers Day in several ways. You can meet recruiters at the fair, you can attend workshops and/or you can have a personal interview with recruiters. Furthermore, you can have someone check your CV, take a professional photo or get advice for your thesis. To end the day well, there is an informal gathering after the market. The Careers Day 2019 is a unique possibility to broaden your career perspectives. Besides, participation of the day is completely free! 

Check out the participating organizations from last year here!
