Career Fair

Speed dating with your potential employer

The Career Fair day is focused to support Young Water Professionals in planning their Water Careers. It aims to provide an enabling environment to learn about setting career goals, planning your career and delivering an enabling platform to (learn to) network to find a suitable water career.

  • Workshop on Public Speaking by Jacobs
  • Traditional Career Fair with Booths of potential employers to visit
  • An Inspirational Panel of Speakers around Water Career Development, with:
    • Prof Peter Vanrolleghem, Advisory Committee member and Professor at Laval University
