Career Fair fully booked for the first time

The interest in the CBS Career Fair has been massive this semester. The CBS Career Centre reports that the number of company stands has been expanded. But even though the coming fair boasts the largest number of company stands in the history of the fair, there is still not enough space for everyone interested in the event. It may very well already be time for companies to start considering attending the spring fair.


The next CBS Career Fair on 1 October will be the biggest ever. 43 companies will have stands at the fair, but even though the Career Centre has expanded the fair from an average of 34, there is not enough room for all interested companies. Because of this the Career Centre has had to announce that the fair was fully booked for the first time.

- We have never had to reject any interested companies before, but more companies have approached us than usual, and we have also started the process earlier with a more structured approach, says Tanja Nesager Hejlskov, Relations Manager at CBS Career Centre.

There are two Career Fairs every year. Tanja Nesager Hejlskov expects that the next Career Fair will also see great interest from companies, and therefore it is a good idea for companies to start considering the spring fair on 4 February 2015.

Meet the talent
The Career Fair is a chance for companies and students to meet and mingle, and Novo Nordisk is among the companies that attend the fair.

- The Career Fair at CBS is a great way for us to meet the talented business students face-to-face and get to talk to them about what Novo Nordisk can offer them during their studies – and after graduation, says Caroline Bloch Poulsen Hansen, Talent Attraction Specialist.

Another first for the Career Fair on 1 October is that companies will get the chance to make presentations in an adjoining auditorium of about 10-15 minutes.  

The first CBS Career Fair was held in February 2007. The last few years, 30-36 companies have had representatives at the fair. CBS Career Centre expects that the increase in the number of stands is permanent.
