Business Speed dates
During speed dates, you rotate every 10 minutes to a new company. This way you get a fast view of what different companies have to offer. This year there will be two speed date sessions for students interested in ‘Energy’ and ‘Data Science’.
The individual meeting gives you the opportunity to speak half an hour with a company recruiter. This often leads to master project internships but can also serve as a job interview.
During the business expo, you can visit companies at their stand and get to know them. Companies will organize interesting activities at their stand such as table football and virtual reality experiences.
On March 16 there will be an interesting opening speaker at 9:00 to start of this two day event.
