On the 9th of March, Transito will host its yearly Recruitment Afternoon. This is the yearly career event in which students will get the opportunity to speed date with companies. The event will take place from 13.00-18.00 at the Venurn’s Office, Maaskade 119, and includes a drink to talk again with the companies or to talk with one did not have a speed date with.
This year, the following companies will join our event: APL Logistics, MTBS, Venturn, Mainfreight, Broekman and Peterson & Control Union. A small introduction to each company can be found under this message. You can register in the form provided in the link below or go to our website. In this form you are asked to state your preference for the firms you would like to have a speed date with and a short description about yourself and your interests. The firms will then in turn give their preference with whom they would like to have a conversation with and then we will match the students to the firms. The registration deadline is set on Wednesday the 28th of February.
Although we cannot promise that you will talk with every firm you selected, we will do our best to match you to your preferred firm and make sure that you always have at least one conversation.
Below you can find a short description of the participating companies and also the application form.
