To get the most out of the fair, it is important to know how to approach the companies and therefore we want to share some useful tips for you:

  • Be prepared! Check out what companies you are interested in and do some research. To do this, visit the company's website and LinkedIn (QR-codes for the companies are found in the catalog).

  • Update your own LinkedIn page and print out your resumes and cover letter to hand it out for interesting companies.

  • Prepare questions (look at our 20 questions!) for the companies that you are interested in.

  • Pitch yourself! Talk about what other experiences and roles you have had and why you are suitable for the company.

  • Ask what they can offer you! You need to know if this is a company that will suit you.
