March 2018

Job Week

In March 2018 the fourth Job Week took place at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, including panel discussions for each programme. The target group for this is BOKU students and alumni. Approximately 700 persons were present at the last Job Week (recently graduated or just about the graduate).


Moderated panel discussions with 4-6 company representatives took place concerning the following questions:

  • Which jobs are out there for BOKU graduates working in companies? What can I expect when starting a job?
  • Description of the work tasks and necessary competencies
  • Assessment of the educational training with regards the job
  • Continuing education needs?
  • How to juggle family and career?
  • What is crucial in the job application process?

Internship position: Participants had the exclusive option to apply in person for an internship at the companies participating in the Job Week. One or two internship positions for 2018 or 2019 were likely be awarded from those that apply. Participants had the opportunity to give their applications for the company of their choice and the desired internship at the start of the panel discussion to and alumni staff member. After the panel discussion a job interview were arranged with the Human Resources representative of each company. The decisions concerning the internships were shared with the applicants a number of days afterwards.
