STAR is very aware of the importance of bringing students into direct contact with companies. It is vital that you provide your company name with maximum exposure within the university and profile yourself as a potential employer. Such is the key to ensuring that the best students will target your company for employment.
Throughout the years, STAR has gained experience in facilitating mutual meetings. In order to be introduced to successful bachelor’s and master’s degree students, STAR organizes many recruitment events each year. The STAR Management Week, the Erasmus Recruitment Days, Consultancy Castle, Case Competition, and the Erasmus Consultancy Project are amongst our most well known and successful events. However, finding the best event for the right target group is not always easy. Therefore, the following overview could help you to compare and select interesting events.
