Here is how to make the most out of Gateway to Working Life- event:

How to prepare for the event?

Think about whether you currently need a future internship, a summer job, a more long-term job, a teaching subject, or perhaps several of these. For example, you can print a CV in advance, which you can hand directly to representatives of different companies. I also recommend preparing a short elevator pitch about yourself that will allow you to make a good first impression of yourself: who are you, what are you studying, what experience do you have, what are you looking for and what are you aiming for in the future?

How to act at the event?

Visit the corporate stands at the event, explore what kind of activities they have and what kind of vacancies they offer. Tell them who you are and whether you are currently looking for a job, a thesis subject or a internship. If your needs meet, ask how you can apply for that place. In addition to visiting the stands, take part in trainings and ancillary events, go get a professional photographer’s CV picture of yourself, and grind your CV to perfect condition with TAMK’s career services stand.


Check out the companies that participate in the event in advance and list the top 5 to whom you want to present yourself. Explore corporate websites in advance and you’ll give instantly an professional image of yourself.
