This event involves mock job interviews with real industrial representatives. Each participant will have the chance to be interviewed by a company of their choice. Previously representatives from Beca, Navico, Rakon and Vodafone have also attended. The interviews last for 30 minutes each, which involves a 20 minute job interview and a 10 minute feedback session on the interview and your CV – a rare opportunity to improve your employment skills.

After the event there is a chance to socialise and network with all the employers from the day. Making good professional contacts is crucial for a successful career in engineering. This is a very rare and valuable opportunity for a student and should not be missed by anyone! There is also free catered finger food and drink available at this function.
