How to prepare yourself for the Career Day
The following steps will help you to prepare yourself for the Career Day and to get the most out of your attendance at the Career Day:
Prepare yourself for the career fair and/or interviews by attending our career events:
- Preparation workshop for the Career Day | 26 September
- Career events
Update your CV, upload it to the Career Platform (Jobteaser) and bring a printed copy with you to the event. This enables organisations to connect with you.
Update your LinkedIn profile and learn how to use your digital LinkedIn business card (QR code) at the event, this way you can stay connected with the employers after the event as well.
Create an introduction pitch and know your strengths to introduce yourself well to employers. Make sure to keep it natural and not too rehearsed.
Create a list of organisations you want to meet at the Career Fair and/or subscribe for their 1-1 interviews:
Prepare questions to ask employers to help start the conversation. We have listed several example questions that can help you:
During the WUR Career Day, some organisations have the option to have a 1-1 interview with them. You need to sign up separately for the 1-1 interviews.
Prepare yourself as if you would go to an interview for a position. Create an introduction pitch and know your strengths to introduce yourself well to employers.

- Discover your Qualities workshop | 5 October
- Pitch your Qualities training | 11 October
- List with professional skills for inspiration
- You need to sign up separately for the 1-1 interviews. Deadline interview registration:
- A registration to an interview does not guarantee an invite for an interview.
- Employers are responsible for the invites and the follow up for the interviews. Student Career Services is not involved in this process, so we do not know the status of your possible invite.
Tip: If you applied for an interview but haven’t heard from the organisation on the day of the event, we advise you to walk by their stand at the career fair to network with the organisation there. This way, you can still ask all of your questions/get more info about the organisation.
- Only go to the employers of your interest
- Attend the event early, directly at 10.00 am as it is more quiet at the beginning, or at the end of the event between 15.00-16.00 pm
- Apply for 1-1 interviews instead of going to the career fair as this is more personal
- When you're at the event and you feel it is too much at that moment, come back during a more quiet time (morning, lunch, end of the event)
The language spoken during the Career Days is English. However, an organisation might request a certain level of Dutch language skills is necessary.
