  • Also check the 5th November Programme regarding workshops and company presentations (possible updates up until October 31st);
  • Get ready, select the companies you want to approach, document yourself about them, identify the questions you want to place, anticipate possible questions by the recruiter.

During the day(s):

  • If participating onsite, we advise you to save the whole day (5th November);
  • If only online, please check the final version of the Programme a few days before the event; get organized to watch and interact in the presentations which may of interest to you (you can and should be selective);
  • The ideal approach is for you to apply to jobs on the platform beforehand; however, you should always take with you one or two printed CVs in English as well, namely if you intend to benefit from EURES advice;
  • When approaching the company info points, a careful image is important, but also a good level of English and a positive and assertive attitude; also the demonstrated knowledge regarding the companies and their main projects will make the difference. Therefore, you should document yourself as much as possible beforehand.
