Prior to the Career Days you have the possibility to pre-register here on our website.

Pre-registration will ensure you following advantages:

  • You jump the line at the door. Having pre-registered, you receive an e-mail confirmation. This contains a QR-code that you scan at the entrance to get your name tag. The QR-code can be scanned directly from the e-mail on your phone, or you can bring a print of it.
  • Win a DKK 3000 prize. If you win, you chose which prize – e.g. a Nespresso coffee maker, an iPad or a digital camera.
  • Get spotted as a talent on the fair, when you have registered. At the Career Days, you will meet several exhibitors that use your QR-code to enter you into their talent pool. Following the fair, they keep in touch with you; send you invitations for open house events, job offers, information regarding professional events etc.

In the Job gallery, you are able to get an overview of participating companies and organizations. Also, you will be able to see which studies they are interested in. Knowing which companies might find your competencies valuable will, inevitably, make it easier to engage in conversation with said exhibitor. In the Job gallery participating companies display any relevant job vacancies. Drop by and find out if your dream job is among one of them.

In the Job Gallery you are able to meet professional career counselors, representatives from trade organizations as well as HR-representatives from companies and organizations participating at the fair.

All of them ready to provide you with input for your CV and relevant career counseling to help you get closer to your dream job. Joint CV check works as a mini workshop, where up to 10 individuals at a time are able to receive feedback. Both individual and joint CV check provides you with tools and strategies to improve all parts of your CV. Come prepared – this will make the feedback more valuable to you. And bring a printed version of your CV.

Generally, employers spend very little time on each application they read. A professional picture can thus make a good first-hand impression. The Job Gallery offers a professional photographer, who takes your picture free of charge. The picture will be sent to you electronically.
