Economic Career Day

Students do not always know where their future lies. In order to help them orient themselves on the labor market and make informed decisions for their future career, we, the study association ECU’92, annually host the Economic Career Day Utrecht.

Participation in the Economic Career Day Utrecht is a wonderful opportunity to bring your company and employment options to the attention of motivated and talented students. It is the ideal place to offer internships, traineeships, side-jobs or starting positions. By attending the Career Day you put your company on the radar of the students of Utrecht School of Economics (USE).

The Day consists of the chain of presentations and workshops. Students indicate their preferred companies beforehand, which guaranteed interest of attending students. At noon, lunch will be provided and we will dedicate 1.5 hours to the company market, during which companies and students can network freely. After the company market we continue with the second part of workshops and presentations, and close the day off with drinks.
