A successful first campus-wide Career Day

Fontys Venlo can look back at a successful Career Day which took place on the 25th of February. This day was for the first time organised for all study programmes on the campus. The stands of the more than 70 companies were busy all afternoon, because of the more than 1000 students that visited this event. Besides different stands, students also had the opportunity to visit workshops about amongst others, personal branding, start-ups, Euregion & you, and how to apply for a job. The students really liked this!

Meeting each other

Together, students and companies got to explore what they could mean for each other. A lot of contact details were exchanged and the first meetings for job interviews for internships or graduation assignments were planned.

Satisfied students and companies

The companies said that they were extremely happy with this year’s approach and they like to work with Fontys in this way. Many companies that were visitors this year mentioned that they want to participate in the next Career Day with a stand. Also the students were satisfied, since they could quickly check at what kind of company they would like to work as interns or graduates in the future.

The Career Day will definitely get a follow-up. It’s a nice occasion for companies and students to explore what they can offer each other.
