The Speed Dating Event is a recruitment event dating back to 2009 and is our biggest recruitment event of the year. The goals are to give students the opportunity to get to know companies and also have the chance to end up with internship or traineeship opportunities.
The committee is responsible for selecting a theme, acquisition of companies, promoting the event, finding sponsors and selecting a beautiful location. During the two-day program, participants engage in one-on-one conversations with recruiters, looking for a ‘match’. The event also includes relevant and challenging workshops as well as additional networking possibilities through both a lunch and a closing drink.
All participating companies have one or more marketing positions to fulfill, so participants have a good chance to indeed find their ‘match’! Earlier editions included companies such as Unilever, L’Oréal, GfK, Beiersdorf, Peijnenburg and Henkel.
