Before the Forum
- Find out about the companies, sectors, partners and aid organisations that will be taking part, the list of workshops on offer and the conference themes. The aim is for you to get an idea of the different possibilities on offer.
- A tip: optimise your visiting time and target the companies you are most interested in, as well as the workshops you want to attend.
- Remember to bring your CV (printed version) so you can give it to recruiters. It will also come in handy during workshops. You might also like to prepare a short presentation, introducing yourself in a short, but effective way. Stick to what is essential when speaking about your experience and skills.
On the Day
Tips for visitors
- Remember to bring a pen and paper so you can take notes, and something to eat if you are coming at lunchtime. There are seating areas where you can have a coffee. Coffee and water are free.
- When you get to the stand, bear in mind that each recruiter sees a lot of people during the day, so try to be concise. This is a first contact. The aim is to trigger enough interest to lead to a second meeting. Introduce yourself briefly and highlight the main points (experience and skills). If your profile corresponds to the jobs on offer from the recruiter, leave him or her your CV (with your contact details).
- Be natural and enthusiastic during your job interviews. Above all, write down the contact details of the recruiters you meet so you can send them a reminder later.
