You can register in the form provided below. In this form you are asked to state your preference for the firms you would like to have a speed date with. The firms will then in turn give their preference with whom they would like to have a conversation with based on the CV’s you provide and then we will match the students to the firms.
Although we cannot promise that you will talk with every firm you selected, we will do our best to match you to your preferred firms and make sure that you always have at least one conversation during the day. However, even if you do not have a conversation with a firm, you can always contact the recruiters at the drink at the end of the day.
