In addition to other side programme there will be "Rekry Speed Dating", if enough companies are interested in it. "Rekry Speed Dating" means that there will be series of quick job interviews. The employers sit on one side of the table and the job seekers on the opposite side. When the interview time is finished the host asks the job seekers to proceed to interview with next employer.

If you have informed us that you would be interested in giving a lecture or organizing some other side programme, we will contact you if we haven't done that yet.
Please note that the event is bilingual. It would be good if both languages were spoken at your stand. We recommend that you have something concrete to give to the visitors at the stand, at least business cards.
Laurea offers you the table for the stand but you can also bring your own table if you want and if your table fits in the space reserved for it. If you want to bring your own table, please tell us as soon as possible how much space you need for the table.

Tips for organizations participating in the event
It is good to think about how many representatives you need. If there is only one person, it might be difficult for the representative to pay attention to everyone at the same time. On the other hand a group of officers in a grey suit may not be appealing to the audience. Since the languages used in the event are Finnish and English, it would be good if both languages were spoken at your stand.
Business cards and other material
It is good to have something concrete to give to the visitors, at least business cards. However, you don't have to give everything to everyone. You can also give business cards or some other material only to the people who seem like potential employees. If the visitor has some material related to your company when leaving the event, it is more probable that the visitor will search information about the company afterwards. This is how you can ensure that people contact you after the event.
How to make the visitors approach?
Visitors approach your stand more easily if the representatives seem welcoming. Still the visitors may need some encouragement before they approach and start a conversation. You can start the conversation for example by greeting the visitor and asking what the visitor is looking for in this event. Even during a short conversation it is easy to see what kind of person the visitor is. If you have common interests you can give the visitor your contact information or ask the visitor for CV. You can also arrange an interview time already in the event.
Even if you don't find new employees from the event, you have promoted your company to the future clients and partners. Participating in the event is also one way to create a good image for your company.
