Getting ready for the event | EURES - European Job Days

Getting ready for the event

  • Register as a jobseeker (entry is free of charge, but prior registration is mandatory, since limited places are available).
  • Study the available information on the participating companies, their main projects and recruitment profiles / needs.
  • Search for the jobs for which you meet all or most of the requirements and apply to those which match your profile.

Participating companies may invite you for one or more recruitment interviews on October 9th or 10th. If you are pre-selected, you will get a notification by employer(s) on the possible time slots for an interview. You should reply to this notification as soon as possible.

  • Take the time to check the programme regarding workshops and company presentations (updates may be added up until September 30th).
  • Take the time to prepare. Select the companies you want to approach, carry out research into them, identify the questions you want to ask them and anticipate possible questions.

During the day(s):

Participating ONSITE?

  • We would advise you to save the whole day (October 9th) to take advantage of the information and advice on offer.
  • The ideal approach is for you to apply for jobs on the platform in advance of the event; however, you should also bring along a few printed CVs in French or English – they may be useful when approaching exhibitors, and/or if you wish to benefit from EURES advice.
  • When approaching the company information points, it is vital that you create the best possible impression. This includes showcasing fluency in English and/or French and a positive and assertive attitude. You should also demonstrate your knowledge of the companies and their current main projects. This will make a difference, generating the maximum positive impact.
  • Make sure you arrive on time for any pre-scheduled interview.

Following the programme ONLINE?

  • Minimum requirements: a PC / laptop, tablet or smartphone with stable access to the Internet (wifi or cable connection) and speakers or headphones.
  • Check the final version of the programme the day before the event at least; watch the presentations, which may be of interest to you and ask questions on the chat.

For this event, interviews will mostly take place at the Engineers’ Order, but if you agree on an online meeting with the employer, make sure that you:

  • Have a webcam, (headsets with) microphone and (ideally) a Skype setup.
  • Connect on time for the setup meeting.
