The JTH students Isabella Fernström and Mia Karlsson (in the front) have in their thesis conducted a case study on Nobia. Joakim Andersson and Wiktoria Rydin (in the back) are Director Supply Chain Nordic respective Project Manager at Nobia.

On 28 May, the “Xjob Fair Digital Showroom” (Xjobbsmässan) will be organised and the graduating students at the School of Engineering (JTH), will exhibit their degree projects. 42 students and 14 companies are participating in the event and three theses will be rewarded with a total of SEK 20,000 in scholarships.

During the Xjob fair, JTH's graduating students exhibit their theses to the business community and the general public. This is usually done through a physical exhibit on campus, but due to the pandemic, this year's fair will be a digital showroom.

"The Xjob Digital Showroom is a good opportunity for students to showcase their skills for business and for companies to get inspiration, new ideas or to hire new staff," says Linda Bergqvist, External Relations Manager at JTH.

“Very rewarding”

Isabella Fernström and Mia Karlsson are studying Logistics and Management at JTH and are participating in the fair. In their thesis, they have mapped the introduction of new employees at manufacturing companies and have conducted a case study on Nobia, which is one of Europe's leading kitchen specialists and is located in Jönköping among other places. Isabella Fernström and Mia Karlsson think that it has been very rewarding to work so closely with a company and to have gained a foothold on the labour market.

“It has worked out well for us at Nobia. We have had continuous status meetings with them digitally and have received all the help we have needed,” says Isabella Fernström.

She and Mia Karlsson have enjoyed collaborating with Nobia and would very much like to work there after graduation. They think it is a pity that they cannot meet the company representatives in person, but believe that the fair will be more accessible in a digital form.

“This way, more people can take part in the thesis that are exhibited,” says Mia Karlsson.

Facts

Three of the theses at the fair will be awarded scholarships in the categories: Best Performance (SEK 10,000), Best Business Potential (SEK 5,000) and Audience Favorite (SEK 5,000). The first two scholarships are chosen by a jury, while the audience favourite is voted on by the digital visitors to the fair. You can vote until 2 June on the fair´s website, here (in Swedish only). The scholarships will be handed over during JTH´s graduation ceremony on 4 June.
