This year, the University is once again using its virtual job fair, Virtual Career Forum, to create a point of meeting between its students and alumni and the business world. Its goal is to generate professional and networking opportunities, and to respond to the recruitment needs of companies. The new edition will take place on 22 and 23 February and is open to companies from all sectors. Companies can register until 1 February through the Career Services website, Careers Office of the University. 

Last year, more than 1,000 students and recent graduates participated in the virtual fair and were able to apply for more than 250 internship and job offers and interact with recruiters from 83 companies and non-profit organisations from all sectors.

"The differential value of our fair is our talent. I don't just mean intelligence, but also attitude as a determining factor. Our students have excellent theoretical and humanistic training. Companies today need professionals with these skills, because there are many who are looking for talent, but the best companies want to find good people with talent," says Roberto Cabezas Ríos, director of Career Services. 

Ana San Agustín, Recruiter Manager EMEA at Amazon Spain, one of the companies that participated in the last edition, agrees, pointing out that "the University of Navarra is always a great source of talent source . The candidates have very complete profiles and are very well prepared".

From Attendis, business which also participated in the last edition, Mario Serrano Vicente, head of Training and Teaching at department of Education and development Personal, says: "We found all subject facilities to show our project educational and grade the enthusiasm to undertake challenges in this field among the students of the University of Navarra".

More career opportunities for students and graduates

"It is a good opportunity for students and graduates to meet and approach companies where they could develop professionally. In addition to applying for internships and job offers, at the fair they will have the option of attend to attend conferences and interact with recruiters," adds Roberto Cabezas. Students and alumni (recommended for the last three promotions, due to the subject profiles that companies tend to look for at these events) will be able to register from 7 February on the Career Services website.

Thanks to the fair, Mamen Ferrer Ortiz, a graduate of the Degree in Economics + Leadership and Governance Program, did an internship during the summer at Amazon. "The Virtual Career Forum offers a privileged view of how business works and its culture, which is also very useful to clarify doubts about how your profile fits in different companies", says Mamen Ferrer.
