An exceptional opportunity to exchange with companies from the ATHENA network!

The first ATHENA Virtual Career Day, taking place on 19 October 2022 in the morning at 9:00am (for 2-2,5hrs) will give students and PhD-students the opportunity to meet companies and other stakeholders linked to the labour market of the ATHENA partners’ countries. The event specifically targets students, PhD-students, companies, and networking institutions from the fields of IT and engineering. Employers and (future) jobseekers can connect, exchange, and discuss any topic related to professional life, career opportunities, and the job market in general. 
By engaging in the ATHENA Virtual Career Day, companies can establish a first contact to a large pool of highly skilled talents having undergone practice-oriented education at nine universities in Europe. Jobseekers, on the other hand, can get valuable tips to boost their employability and find the company that best suits their individual career plans. Participants will also learn about the various offers of ATHENA, its support for personal career development, and how it connects university and businesses.
The event will feature a keynote by a distinguished speaker or company. After that, companies and networking institutions will briefly introduce themselves and are then assigned to a virtual room where they can independently moderate the discussion with students and PhD-students. These sessions are intended to work as a virtual job fair. 

Join the event and be part of our European University!
