JOBFair 2020 online
The job meeting of the Italian Schools of excellence
JobFair was established in 2014 as an initiative of the Career Service of the Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna, as an annual event of career day with the aim of creating a link between the academic world and the job market. Since the first edition the event had remarkable results and throughout the years the event has been growing and enlarging not only in the number of companies and students involved but also under the institutional point of view. In 2015 Scuola Normale Superiore, IUSS Pavia and IMT Lucca joined JobFair and from 2017 onwards it involves all the six “Scuole Universitarie Superiori” (Scuola Normale Superiore, Scuola IMT Alti Studi Lucca, IUSS Pavia, SISSA from Trieste and Gran Sasso Science Institute from L’Aquila), and can be presented and recognised as the first job meeting of the Italian Schools of excellence.
In the 2019 JobFair’s edition, 51 leading companies participated representing numerous sectors, from consulting to the high-tech industry: more than 200 students from the six Schools (Honor students of undergraduate, Master's and PhD programs) met in Sant’Anna premises carrying out over 950 one-to-one interviews. About 80 PhD students carried out one-to-one interviews. In 2020 the 7th Edition of JOBFair will regularly take place on 21st and 22nd October. It will be run entirely ONLINE.
