Speed Dating

Companies Meet Students

Speed Dating: Companies Meet Students is a regular event held at Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences with the goal of connecting students to representatives of companies and institutions. In quick, 10-minute ‘speed dates’, students meet with recruiters and representatives of regional companies to get a feel for each other without the stresses of a standard job interview. The event is organised by the supporter association Friends of Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences in conjunction with Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences.

The next Speed Dating: Companies Meet Students takes place on November 25 2020 (3p.m. - 6p.m.) as a virtual event.
