DSE Fair Lyngby is Denmark’s largest job and career fair, where you can meet relevant employers and discuss real job and career opportunities with them. Make contact with potential workplaces and stay in touch with those companies during and after your studies. Doing so will make it easier to land that first, permanent position.
You’ll meet companies that are relevant to engineers.
You can discuss real job and career opportunities with potential employers.
You can hear more about the jobs of the future and the skills and qualifications that are in high demand among companies.
You will likely get information about companies and jobs you weren’t aware of.
You’ll learn more about fields with good job opportunities.
You may also discover alternative job opportunities or career tracks.
The DSE Fair’s main purpose is to give engineering students such as yourself the chance to make contact with companies that could end up being your future workplaces. The DSE Fair Lyngby is held at DTU and is attended by roughly 10,000 students and recent graduates. Over 150 companies, approximately 10 organisations and a handful of startups will be present.
Many of the companies bring their recruitment staff to the fair. If you’re looking for your first job out of university, you may want to try having a chat with one or several of these headhunters.
Some of the things you could ask about could be what kinds of candidates they’re currently looking for and may be looking for in the near future, or what specific professional skills and qualifications they need. You could then adapt your studies (or application) accordingly. Make contact with businesses at the fair and make sure to stay in touch with them.
Remember that a job fair is a fair where many of the attending companies look for excellent candidates for future or current vacancies. They will ask what you can bring to the table. If you prepare thoroughly before the fair, you’ll definitely end up getting more out of it. That’s why you should practice your responses in front of a mirror or together with a friend or partner. Make sure to keep your answers short and succinct.
It’s recommended that you bring your CV, business card or perhaps something more novel that will help you stand out from the crowd. And don’t hesitate to ask if it’s OK to connect with them on LinkedIn.
There will be many students at the fair, so you should contact the companies you want to have a chat with quickly. Follow up on any agreements immediately after the fair. It’s up to you to be the initiative-taker.
Prior to the fair, DSE organises a Job Conference event where you can get help preparing to meet the companies and specific tools that allow you to present yourself in a professional manner. See our fair catalogue for further information about the Job Conference.
There will be a number of company presentations at the fair that can help inspire you and perhaps answer some job-related questions. Following each presentation, you can have a chat with the presenters and perhaps even go through a short job interview with other companies and organisations attending the fair.
The fair is also a fantastic opportunity for accelerated networking. You can network and make contact with professionals working at engineering companies within your field.
Depending on how far along in your studies you are, you may be able to find an internship, student job, your first permanent job, or simply inspiration on places you can apply for a job. You might also find the company you want to write your thesis with.
You can also take a look in our job bank, get free feedback and advice on your CV and have a professional photo taken of you.
If you have an amazing idea or concept that you’d like to get some feedback on, you can stop by the startup stand for lots of tips and helpful advice. If you haven’t come up with an idea just yet, you can talk to others with great ideas and perhaps join a group where you have something to contribute.
Before the fair, there will be a variety of events on campus where DSE will share info about the fair, hand out fair catalogues, merchandise and some light snacks and sweets. At the fair, you can take part in various competitions at the DSE stands.
Be sure to also join the Job Conference, where you get specific tools that prepare you for meeting the companies and advice on how best to present yourself.
DSE provides free transport to the DSE Fair Lyngby from several universities. However, you must sign up first in order to take advantage of this offer.
