Every year the Careers Day is organized for all students in Utrecht. This day is meant to show you what is possible with your education (internships, jobs and traineeships). For every student, there will be multiple interesting organizations!

You can get in touch with organizations in different ways. You can meet recruiters during the company fair, join one of the workshops and/or have a personal interview with a company. Furthermore you can get your CV checked, have a professional photo taken or get career advice. To close off the day, we have informal drinks at the end of the company fair. The Careers Day is the perfect way to broaden your career perspective. Participation is free!
