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.
It is hard to find available parking slots on campus Gløshaugen. If you need a place to park your car during the fair, please notify you contact person of this and we will find a solution.
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.
We can arrange a TV for your stand if you wish. This is done through an external provider and an extra charge applies. Your contact person will have more information about this.
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.
All stand slots have access to four standard type F power sockets. There is Wi-Fi in the exhibition hall and the password is provided by your contact person.
Whether you wish to send your stand to us or bring it with you yourself is recorded in the logistics form and changes can naturally be made through your contact person.

If you are sending us your stand before the event, it is important that you ensure that it arrives on either Monday 18. September or Tuesday 19. September as we have limited storage capabilities.

The address is:
Bindeleddet NTNU
Kolbjørn Hejes vei 1E
NO – 7034 Trondheim

There are also plenty of members of the KarriereDagene team who will be in the exhibition hall and assist you in rigging up and down your stand.

We can send the stand back to you after the event. Since Bring (the postal services) will charge you directly for this, we ask for your client number at Bring through the logistics form.
You will receive an invoice in October after the event. You have filled in you billing info in the logistics form and this will be double checked by your contact person.
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.

The companies attending internship presentations will have two minutes each to convince the attending students why they should spend their summer at your offices. This is a unique opportunity to recruit students to your internships. Only one company representative may be present, and you may use up to two PowerPoint-slides. The presentations are held in an auditorium on campus.

Speed interviews represent an opportunity to step out of the exhibition hall and learn more about relevant students. This is a more personal and in-depth form of recruitment compared to the career fair. We provide you with an interview room and online registration on our website. Speed interviews will be conducted in parallel with the other activities on Wednesday and Thursday.
