“We are here to connect with the students, to have a good chat, to hear their stories and their dreams and see if we can be a part of it," said Rikard Karlsson.
The Nextstep career fair has been a project nine months in the making and was organised by a team of 22 students from JIBS and the School of Engineering. On the day, the team were also helped by 37 ‘host’ students from JU.
“We are really happy with how things have gone,” said Elin Jönsson, Nextstep project manager. "Our goal this year was to include some international companies in the fair, and so we are delighted that Alliance and Gartner could take part. We are also really proud that companies such as Alliance, Volvo and Jönköping Energi wanted to give lectures at the fair. Our aim is for students to get inspired about their future and we hope this has helped them take the next step in their career.”
