College Students was developed to deal with the request for college students to find a suitable internship. It is meant to build bridges between the 2 worlds of the interns and businesses in a relaxed but effective manner.
The students find it difficult to find a foothold in companies and businesses find it equally challenging to find the right person for the internship. This event levels the playing field.
During a presentation or talk by a leader in the industry the students gain knowledge and feel confident enough to choose whether a study to follow in a particular branch of industry or not. There is a question and answer period after the talk in which the atmosphere is interactive. After the presentation the attending businesses can "speed-date" with the students.
The first College Students happened on December 3, 2013 in Almere and was a huge success. There will be more to come.
