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 personally get to know a variety of companies and to have the chance to end up with internship or traineeship opportunities.
This year, we organise 2 Speed Dating days, divided into job levels:
Day 1 (8 march) is focused on internships
Day 2 (23 march) on traineeships and starter-level jobs
Wondering how a speed-dating day would look like for you?
If you sign up, you’ll be assigned to either a morning- or afternoon session of the day you choose to go to (you can, of course, also choose to join both!).
Your day will include 8 15-minute speed-dates with 8 different companies. This is a great way to acquaint yourself with the companies but to also let the recruiters remember you.
Next to that, you attend a workshop given by a company and you get the chance to re-connect with your favourite companies at the networking lunch (morning session) or networking drinks (afternoon session) – all of which will happen at a nice location in Rotterdam!
All participating companies have one or more marketing positions to fulfill, so participants have a good chance to find their ‘perfect match’! Earlier editions included companies such as Unilever, Deloitte, Samsung and Henkel, and various students have found their internship or first job through the event. We look forward to seeing you there!
More information on the workshops, the attending companies and application process will follow soon. We plan to start the application process at the beginning of February, so keep checking this page for more info! :-)
