The Career Service organises several events throughout the entire year with the aim to put companies in contact with students and graduates of Politecnico di Milano:
- three annual job fairs (Career Day, International Job Fair and PMI Day)
- the “Recruiting Week”
- the “Design Your Future” event series
3 annual Job fairs
The three annual job Fairs represent a unique showcasing opportunity, which allows students and graduates to meet, on the same day and on campus, representatives of several companies with whom discuss work, internship opportunities, professional roles and growth perspectives. The Career Day is the largest Italian job fair to be solely devoted to technical professionals. Every year, more than 100 companies gather at the Bovisa Campus of Politecnico to meet over 3500 students and graduates at dedicated desks. The International Job Fair is a job fair devoted only to international companies, offering job and internship opportunities abroad. It takes place every year at the Leonardo Campus. Finally, the job fair dedicated to small and medium-sized companies – the PMI Day – takes place every year at the Bovisa Campus. Small Italian enterprises meet students and graduates who are interested in being employed by leading companies within the Italian context.
During the “Recruiting Week”, taking place the last week of every month, companies that are currently hiring have the chance to present their new open positions to the students and carry out interviews. These meetings are expressly intended to allow undergraduate and graduate students to be involved in one-to-one interviews on campus. Company representatives who are interested in filling their open positions get the chance to meet at once several candidates who have been previously selected based on company requirements and CVs.
Design your Future
“Design your Future” is a series of one-day-events dedicated to students who are willing to understand the dynamics of the labour market, discover companies and their offers and meet and discuss with company managers. These are meetings expressly focused on dialogues and exchanges between students, graduates and company managers. Discussion subjects typically concern the internal dynamics of companies, possible growth paths and opportunities offered by specific fields of interest. During the meetings, real-world topics are often discussed and specific case-studies are analysed. This allows attendees to get to the details and exchange viewpoints on projects and issues they are likely to face in the future.
