Career Interview

 

What is a career interview?

A career interview is your chance as a student to establish closer contact with a business representative in a more relaxed environment. During 20 minutes you will have the opportunity to have an individual conversation with a business representative from a company that you are interested in. The conversation is held in smaller group rooms at Ekonomikum during the fair days. As a student, you can use the time to find out more about the company, what career opportunities are available and tell more about yourself and what kind of job you are looking for. A career interview is not a job interview, it is more of a relaxed conversation that gives students and business representatives an opportunity to have a chat with each other.
