The School of Business wants to assist students to a successful career. Our Career Centre provides a platform where both students and businesses can meet and create connections for the future.
The Career Centre- for students and businesses
The Career Centre is especially designed to assist students of business in their strive to enter the job market. We provide information about employment opportunities for economists and we seek to bring businesses closer to the University and its students.
How does the Career Centre help students?
The Career Centre works to help you as a student to come into contact with interesting businesses and it is our aim to make the connection beneficial for both parties. Among other things we arrange workshops on how to write CVs and cover letters and we can also give you advice before a job interview. Due to our collaboration with businesses and organisations we are also able to offer internships, summer vacancies and trainee positions.
- It is very efficient to have a career service that is specifically aimed at economists. This makes it easier for both students and companies to find what they are looking for. Our aim is to help the students enter the job market, says Marina Mourad who is responsible for the Career Centre. Our students should be well prepared and know how to be successful in their job search. We have done a good job when the right person gets the right job, Marina Mourad adds.
The Career Centre offers interesting business contacts that are relevant to all students, regardless of which specialisation they have chosen. We select companies based on student preference and our own experience and we strive to ensure that different types of businesses, both from the private and public sector, are represented at the Centre.
How does the Career Centre help businesses?
Businesses have a lot to gain from establishing good relations with the future workforce. Contact with students and universities gives businesses an insight into the latest teachings and current research and this helps them understand how students think- all of which gives them an advantage when they recruit.
Businesses that collaborate with the Career Centre are given the opportunity to get involved with many different aspects of the education as well as the chance to market themselves as interesting employers. We can for example advertise for internships and handle invitations and other practical arrangements for business presentations etc here at campus. Another way for businesses to market their activities is to share their experiences with students during a class or agree to see a student who is writing a dissertation.
