Meet your future employer: ATHENA Career Fair 2023

Career Fair 1600x900px

The second edition of the virtual ATHENA Career Fair takes place on 30 November 2023 at 4 pm CET (Central European Time). Following up on a successful debut in 2022, the ATHENA Career Fair is a unique opportunity for students to connect with companies from all ATHENA countries. It specifically targets graduate and undergraduate students from the fields of IT and engineering who can get in touch with more than a dozen future employers. However, students from other fields of study are more than welcome to find out about career opportunities, too.

At the ATHENA Career Fair, students can discuss any topic related to professional life. They can get valuable tips to boost their employability and find the company that best suits their individual career plans. All companies will briefly introduce themselves before they separate into different meeting rooms. Students can visit these companies in their meeting rooms just as they would visit companies on a physical fair!

To attend the ATHENA Career Fair 2023, we kindly ask you to sign up via a short registration form. You will receive the event link two days prior to the ATHENA Career Fair.
