What is your best advice to students who visit the fair?
Let them know what you are studying and what you are interested in and do research about the companies before the fair so you can have more interesting conversations with their representatives. It does not matter if you have just started studying or soon will graduate - do not be nervous to talk with the companies, they are there to meet you as much as you are there to meet them.

What is your best advice to students who visit the fair?
Two things: 1) Do not be afraid to make contact. Remember that all of the exhibitors are there to meet you. Take advantage of it. Are you interested in the company, why not ask for a mail list so you can sign up for their future events events? 2) Stand out in the crowd by being more prepared that other visitors. Choose some companies that you find interesting and do research about their offers and values to be able to ask the right questions and show your interest.

What is your best advice to students who visit the fair?
Take the opportunity to contact many companies. Take the chance to get an understanding of what jobs the companies offer, what they are searching for, which development opportunities exist and how the culture is at the workplace. There are many exciting companies at the fair and there are companies that you least expect can fit you and your future goals.

What is your best advice to students who visit the fair?
Think about what you are interested of and what your expectations are of your future job. Do research of the company first to have a better dialog with them. The bottom line is to present yourself and show who you are. And of course, have fun! The companies are there to meet you.

Hanna EdlerBusiness Intelligence Consultant at Hypergene

What is your best advice to students who visit the fair?
Attend the GÖSTA fair the first year if you can, since it is an amazing fair with very many companies present. Then you can get a sense of which companies match what is important to you. In addition to the companies present, you can request GÖSTA for other companies you would like to meet the next year. Have in mind that all meetings during the GÖSTA fair can result in numerus opportunities whether it is just contacts, an extra jobb while you study, or your firs full time job after graduation.
