Careers Day 2020

Every year, the Careers Day is organised for all students of Utrecht University. Through this day, the organisation of the Careers Day wants to help you gain insight into the possibilities with your degree (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 or request advice for your thesis. To end the day successfully, there will be an informal networking reception at the end of the company fair. Careers Day 2020 is a unique chance to broaden your career perspectives. And above all, taking part is free!

Workshops

Meet organisations and discover their possibilities. What is it like to work at a certain organisation? What does a consultant have to deal with? And what makes the municipality disruptive?

1-on-1 interviews

Have a chat with a recruiter! In 30 minutes you will talk about internship, job or traineeship possibilities or a specific vacancy.

Company fair

In the afternoon, there will be a company fair where organisations are represented with stands. Talk to organisations in an informal way and get to know more about what they have to offer.

Networking reception

At the end of the event, there will be an opportunity for a drink. This is your chance to network with an organisation that has caught your attention.
