Talent Expo — Aalto University's largest recruitment fair

Students of Aalto University represent the top of their field in business, art & design, and technology, and are highly coveted among employers due to their wide range of skills. By participating in Talent Expo, you will reach a great number of students both from the many study fields of Aalto University and from all stages of their studies: bachelor's, master's, and doctoral. The expo is an excellent opportunity to recruit Aalto students and build a positive employer image among the game changers of tomorrow.

Date of the event

Talent Expo is organised usually at the end of October or beginning of November. The date and more detailed information about each year's event will be published usually in May.

In addition to the stands, virtual contact opportunities are available earlier during the fair week. The students will also be able to to learn valuable job-hunting skills and explore the exhibitors' career opportunities in JobTeaser prior to the event.

Prices (from the 2023 event)*

*The prices shown here are from the 2023 event and there might be some changes for the next year.

At Talent Expo, exhibitors are able to form a stand that is suitable for their needs and activities. When deciding the size and form of the stand, it is useful to begin by visualizing what is going to happen at the stand. Pick the number of units (4 m2/unit) and combine units to form a stand that meets your needs!

Choosing one basic stand is great for a traditional fair presence. If you are looking for a more dashing and active fair stand, we recommend choosing multiple adjacent stands. For example, with a combination of 3 stands you'll be able to have small presentations and activities at your stand and can even interview students or have performances within your space.

VAT will be added to all prices.

Entities within Aalto University have the possibility to join Aalto Talent Expo free. If you are interested in an Aalto stand, please contact us: [email protected]. Please note that Aalto stand is the same size as a mini stand, but does not include branding or food vouchers.

Student marketing and JobTeaser

At the expo, the main communication channel to students is the tried and true JobTeaser. Every participating exhibitor will have a Company Profile -page on JobTeaser, and virtual fair activities are organized via JobTeaser. 

JobTeaser is a job portal used by Aalto University Career Services. Students can find the jobs targeted to Aalto University students, all career services events and information + appointments for updating their job hunting skills in JobTeaser. 

The Expo's student marketing is built utilizing many digital and traditional marketing channels. For social media marketing we use (among other Aalto University accounts) the Talent Expo instagram account: https://www.instagram.com/aaltotalentexpo/. Natually, the event is also very visible on campus in the fall and our team even sends a post card invitation to all Aalto University students!
