After the presentations we will enjoy a delicious lunch in Esplanada. During the lunch you have the opportunity to have speed dates with some of the companies.
* Speed dates
If you participate in the speed dates you will have a one-on-one conversation with the recruiter of a company for about 10 minutes. During the speed date you can ask for some more information about the company and perhaps discuss the possibilities of an internship or for writing your thesis at that company.
During the case you will get a good impression of what activities an employee of a company performs on a daily basis.
* Networking drink
The networking drink is the perfect opportunity to get to know a company in a more informal way. You can discuss the day and ask questions if you still have some. It is a relaxed way to end the day with your fellow students and the recruiters present.
