The coronavirus pandemic is currently throwing us all for a loop, and it is also causing uncertainty in the labor market. But here’s the good news: Despite the crisis, many companies are still looking for graduates. At our Digital Career Day events, you can meet these potential employers online and use the chat function to talk one-on-one about entry-level opportunities, internships, or the mentoring of theses. You won’t have to take long trips to faraway destinations or spend much time on organizing everything - simply get all the information you need online and find your way into the job market despite physical distancing.

At these Digital Career Days, up to five companies will introduce themselves one after the other via video conferencing, and participants can already begin asking initial questions via the chat function. We have allotted for about an hour for this. Afterward, students can get to know individual companies, who will be holding separate conferences, in smaller groups, directly via video conferencing, and in parallel in writing via chat. We also have one hour planned for this second part.
