Careers Day 2020

Every year, the Careers Day is organised for all students and alumni of Utrecht University. Through this day, the organisation of the Careers Day wants to help you gain insight into your career options (internships, side jobs, traineeships, starters jobs). For every student, no matter which study programme or study phase, there will be interesting organisations present.

At the Careers Day, there are several possibilities of getting in contact with the organisations present. You can meet recruiters at the company fair, take part in a workshop and/or sign up for a personal interview with recruiters. You can also do a cv check, have a professional photo taken for your CV or LinkedIn profile or request advice for your thesis. Careers Day 2020 is a unique chance to broaden your career perspectives. And above all, taking part is free!
