About DatE-IT

The labour fair DatE-IT is unique since it is directed towards Computer Science, Electrical Engineering and Information Technology. This makes the fair a great opportunity for students and companies in these exact fields to meet and network. By focusing on companies in only the fields mentioned above we can keep the size of the fair just right and thereby having the chance to hold it in the EDIT-building. The EDIT-building at Chalmers is the daily studying environment for the about 2000 students with the particular orientations Computer Science, Electrical Engineering and Information Technology. This means that the students will be at their home ground in the meeting with companies which creates a relaxed atmosphere.

The DatE-IT 2015 catalogue is available and you can find it here:

General info

The purpose of DatE-IT is to give an opportunity to introduce your company and to network with the 2000 future engineers that study Computer Science, Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at Chalmers.

The fair is of appropriate size. Big enough to attract a large amount of students, but at the same time small enough to get to know eachother. The fact that the fair is held in the EDIT-building - where the students of Computer Science, Electrical Engineering and Information Technology spend most of their days to study - gives the fair a personal touch that is hard to achive at other fairs of greater size.

For students

Prepare

Start by going through the catalog and select the companies you are interested in. Do it carefully, visit the companies websites to understand more what they are working on. Decide which companies you should visit during DatE-IT and focus on them, it's much better than aimlessly walking around among all of the companies.

Are you at the stage of finding a job or thesis project and want the company to take an interest in you? Think about how you want to present yourself. Practice at home on a short and pithy presentation. By being well-informed and prepared, you can match your skills and abilities against the company's. It is not only your education, specialization and elective courses that are important. Trust and overseas experience is often seen as an advantage. Your personality will determine whether you get the job or not. Think about yourself, who are you? What do you want? What do you know?

Make contact

The exhibitors at DatE-IT will most probably not give you a thesis project or a job immediately. If you make contact with the company representer, ask for a business card and inform that person that you would like to contact him or her again. Make sure to be remembered! You can give the company your own business card or your résumé. Keep track of which company that have received your résumé. Write down and document what has been said and how possible future contact will take place.

If you choose to leave your résumé, remember that it is your way of marketing yourself. Make sure that the résumé clearly states who you are, what you know and also what your goals are. Be as thorough as possible when you write your résumé. It should be easy for the employer to understand your competense. If you contact different companies, you can give them different résumés which are tailor-made to each company.

Submit your résumé

During the fair it is possible to attend interviews with a number of companies. To take advantage of this opportunity, you must submit your résumé. Résumé submission will open as the fair approaches.
