Each year, the JIBS Student Association (JSA) organises Nextstep, an international career fair. The fair has the purpose of connecting students with companies to identify recruitment and business opportunities.
What is Nextstep?
Nextstep is the annual career fair at Jönköping University. It has been arranged for students by students since 1994. Where local, national, and international companies exhibit during the day, with the purpose to present their business and attract ambitious students at the university. Interesting meetings will be combined with exciting guest lectures, workshops, and contact calls during the career fair. Nextstep helps students take the next step in their careers.
During the year of Nextstep, multiple social events are hosted, all to bring students closer, creating awareness of career choices, and having a great time. Nextstep also includes a unique opportunity for students to network with potential employers and find leads to future career opportunities. Alongside the fair, students have the opportunity to apply for contact calls, which are private appointments between a student and a company representative. These contact calls are highly valued as they are an excellent opportunity for students eager to present themselves and their ambitions. Moreover, the fair day also provides exciting lectures and workshops, and a grand banquet marks the event's closing. Everything at Nextstep is created for all students at JU. This is an opportunity to take the next step in your career.
Nextstep will be held on 27 February, 2024
Nextstep is the bridge between students and companies. This is where both parties have the opportunity to interact with each other, establish relationships, work on their network, and hopefully finding connections. This could lead to future job opportunities, trainee programs, internships, or part-time jobs during studies. The combination of ambitious and international students and companies makes Nextstep a unique, prominent career fair and an excellent opportunity to meet your future co-workers.
During their studies at JU, all students can participate and plan the fair together with other students. As part of organising projects like Nextstep, students gain essential learning experiences and exercise skills that future employers highly appreciate.
This years theme for the fair is “Whatever it takes”.
