Career Day: Meet the companies.

We are very happy to announce the second part of a series of Career Fair events with special topic Meet the companies. This event is presenting its students and graduates with an opportunity to get a first feel of job seeking. During this event students and alumni have interview opportunities with corporate recruiters and present their skills and abilities to potential employers.

Clearly, this is a mutually beneficial event for both companies that wish to recruit well-educated individuals with high progress and success drive and for students and graduates who come in direct contact with high-profile company recruiters.

Organized by the Graduate Student's Association of the Computer Science Department University of Crete with the support of the Computer Science Department of the University of Crete (CSD, UOC). The event will be held virtually on Friday, October 15, 2021 12:00 - 17:00 (GMT +3). Registrations are closing on 08/10/2021.

We would like to thank the following companies for participating in the event

Event description

The event will be held virtually via the Discord platform. Each company will have a private channel (virtual booth), in which it will wait for candidates. A candidate will see all the channels, and they will select a company to meet. If the chosen company has no empty slot, the candidate can either wait in a queue or find a “free” channel.

Each slot of these virtual booths will be at most 10 minutes. The companies in first-come-first-served mode will make the selection of the participants. In this private meeting, companies and participants will connect and discuss the workplace and the available jobs.

In parallel with virtual booths, there will also be sessions in which representatives of each company will have a 5-minute pitch to present basic information about the company.

During the registration, participants will be able to submit their CVs. Afterward, we will forward them to the companies that can manage them as they wish, either by contacting the candidates for an interview or keeping them in their database for future jobs.
