Summer Job Day 2022 fluently turned into a virtual event

Due to the rapidly declined situation with the pandemic, Summer Job Day 2022 recruitment fair was organized virtually on 19-20 January 2022 on JobTeaser.

I think this event was the closest you can get to the in-person experience while still doing things online. Well done!

Student feedback from Summer Job Day 2022

Summer Job Day 2022 was organized completely virtually in January due to the event restrictions related to the pandemic. This time, students got to hear about summer job opportunities of over 30 employers during two webinars. Each participating employer gave a three-minute pitch related to summer jobs and thesis assignments. After the webinars, students had the chance to meet employers during separate Q&A sessions. In addition, a CV & LinkedIn -clinic was held a day prior to the event.

It was good that companies were given a specific framework for what to organize and when – this helped smooth the transition into virtual

Exhibitor feedback from Summer Job Day 2022

The event received excellent feedback from students and exhibitors alike. Students gave a 4,3/5 average grade for the event. The exhibitor average grade for the whole event was 4,1/5. Close to 600 students registered for the event, and both webinars were visited by roughly 300 students. The Summer Job Day event page on JobTeaser was visited over 7 000 times! The pitch webinars got great feedback for functionality and ease.
