Our students and graduates met employers and head hunters face-to-face, had the opportunity to present their CV and market themselves, to discuss matters concerning the job market, to network, to seek career opportunities and get a real-life experience of the interview process.

The feedback from companies’ representatives was very positive, all reporting how impressed they were from the students they interviewed, their professional approach and their value in the job market.

The Career Day comes in line with our Faculty’s strategic goals and mission for extroversion and connection with the industry.
