This site will receive consecutive updates as we are closing in on the fair
Here you will find the answers to most of the questions you may have regarding your company’s participation at KarriereDagene NTNU 2020.
If you have any other questions you can always reach us by e-mail. Approximately two weeks before the event your contact person in the KarriereDagene team
will reach out to you. Your contact person will ensure that the information we received from the logistics form is correct and will assist you before,
during and after the event.
Your contact person will meet you on Gløshaugen campus on the day of your participation and show you where your spot is in the exhibition hall.
The exhibition hall opens at 10:00, and we recommend all company representatives to arrive before 09:15.
There will be an information meeting at 09:30 where at least one representative from each company must be present.
Your contact person will remind you of this and show you where the meeting is held.
The exhibition hall is located in the middle of campus Gløshaugen, on the large lawn between Hovedbygningen,
Gamle Elektro, Gamle Kjemi and Kjelhuset. The address to Kjelhuset (Kolbjørn Hejes vei 1E) is a good reference point to give your taxi
driver or plot into the GPS. If you arrive with the airport shuttle you should get off at Studentersamfundet.
This is within walking distance of Gløshaugen, but if you have a lot to carry you can either order a taxi or take bus 5 in direction
Dragvoll/Lohove from the bus stop on the northern side of Studentersamfundet and get off at Gløshaugen syd.
The stand slots are 4x3 metres and up to four representatives from each company may attend.
There is plenty of space for roll-ups, a stand wall and most other promotional material you wish to use to create a visual impression.
We can provide one stand table, two bar stools, to chairs, a small table and two glass bowls per company.
You have registered what you need through the logistics form. As previously mentioned we will double check that we have the right
information prior to the event, and it will be possible to make changes at that point.
These guidances are related to our physical career fair. However, many are also highly relevant for the digital fair
For a company, a successful career fair attendance is about getting in touch with relevant students and making
a good impression on these. Here are our top six tips to attract attention and applicants:
1. Be open, available and attentive. It is a lot more tempting for the students to engage with company representatives who appear
eager and smiling.
2. Know your own recruitment strategies in and out. Nobody knows your company better than you, and we have no doubt that you will be able
to provide insight into the opportunities and values you offer. However, many students will also have questions regarding the details of
the recruitment process. It is an advantage if the company representatives can answer these without referring to your website.
3. Have breadth in seniority and roles amongst the company representatives. This provides different perspectives and gives you the
opportunity to show different possibilities within your company.
4. Invite students to speed interviews. We can help you arrange this during the day by booking rooms on campus.
See below for more details on this.
5. Hand out flyers, office supplies or other small gadgets. Students love freebies!
6. Arrange fun activities on your stand. Competitions, challenges, showcasing new technology, etc.
A snack wagon will provide you with mineral water, fruit and nuts throughout the day.
Between 11:00 and 14:00 there will be a lunch buffet in Kjelkantinen, which is right next to the exhibition hall.
The lunch is included in the participation fee.
The advertising of KarriereDagene starts in the middle of August and peaks the week prior to the event.
We have multiple stands around campus, have short presentations in various lectures, distribute posters and flyers, and use our
website and social media. Every participating company will have its logo on posters, roll-ups and in a dedicated module on our website.
By clicking your logo the students will be able to read a short text about your company, which you provide to us through the logistics form.
