MATCHing is an annual get-together event for tech-students and tech-companies to network and make new contacts.
Thursday September 16th 2021 – 11-15.30!
Do you need a thesis topic? Summer job? Perhaps you’ll soon graduate and need a new employer? If this is your situation, or if you’re interested in making useful contacts for the future, this is the event for you!
The purpose of MATCHing is to pair up technology students with technology companies, we help you find a match!
Between 11.00 and 15.30 we have a fair with company exhibition stands, two Speed Dating sessions and a Singles Café with free coffee and buns!
There is also speed dating between companies and students, and if you happen to get a match during the event, you can go and sit down in the Singles Café and have a chat with your new beau over a free cup of coffee.
The event was first arranged i September 2019 and had an approximate 1000 visitors!
The event is for ALL technology students. Doesn’t matter what area you study or which year, everyone is welcome!
(Eventual effects due to the actual Covid-19 risk situation then will be monitored. More information will follow closer to the event whether it will be held locally or arranged virtually.)
The event is (of course!) free of charge for students. Come and meet up with companies and see what they have to offer you and grab a free coffee at the café.
We will hand out stickers/badges to all students according to what field you are studying (see the color codes), to make it even easier for both you and the companies to find your perfect match.
TIPS FOR A SUCCESSFUL EVENT:
- Do your groundwork and get acquainted with the companies in advance.
- It’s not a bad idea to have to have copies of your (updated!) CV and/or business cards with you, leave the companies something to remember you by!
- Participate in the speed dating, perfect opportunity to get a personal one-on-one with the companies. Sign up for the speed dating (max 60 pers. total) during week 36.
- Don’t have time? Remember that you don’t have to spend the whole day at the event, fifteen minutes is better than nothing! And you can just drop in at any time.
