European Career Fair in the USA
A European career fair is taking place in Cambridge, Massachusetts from 1-4 February. The fair is co-organised by the European Commission and the European Club of MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology). This year's edition sees a special focus on science and technology.
The main purpose of the fair is to connect employers, who offer career opportunities in Europe, to candidates from top American universities. The 4,000 odd resumes that have been registered in the database for this year's edition show the diversity of those attending: 35% of all candidates are originally from Europe, 32.6% from the USA, and 32.4% from other parts of the world. Around 135 employers will present themselves at the fair, including the Joint Research Centre.
The event includes a panel discussion on the competitiveness of European research, exhibitions and presentations from companies, and the opportunity for interviews with prospective employees.
