You can sign up to attend a morning or afternoon session on any of our career day dates:
Morning session: 09h00 – 12h00
Afternoon session: 13h00 – 17h00
Note: There is limited space available for each session.
How the Event Will Work
Our students’ CVs and work portfolios will be accessible to all attending organisations prior to the event. This will allow you to get to know each student and their specific competencies in order to identify students you would like to further engage
with at the event.
Each attending organisation will be allocated 20 minutes to present themselves. As soon as we
have an indication of the number of organisations that will join us, a schedule will be drawn up
and forwarded to each company. You are free to use your presentation time as you see fit, but
here are some suggestions on what you could include:
• A short intro/background on your company.
• Your mission/vision.
• Projects that your company is involved in.
• The type of students you are looking to recruit, e.g., bachelor’s degree or diploma.
• What it’s like to intern/work at your company.
• What your company culture is like.
• Opportunities for growth and development at your company.
After each organisation has presented themselves, we will have a one-hour contact session to allow each organisation to meaningfully engage with small groups of our students. Each company will be provided with an exhibition space with a table and chairs to do this from.
NB: Our student body comprises both face-to-face and online students.
We request that each company elect an online representative to engage with our online students during this time. This representative can engage with our students from the comfort of their own office.
