This 18th edition will start on 27 April at 10 am with a visiting tour with leading authorities around the different information booths.
It is worth mentioning this year’s strong participation of companies and institutions going from 48 last year to 60, "a trend that reflects the economic recovery of our surrounding area", as stated by the organisers.
Over 3, 000 university students are expected to join us Wednesday and come to the Lecture Building No. 3 to get to know participating companies, leave their curriculum vitae and find out what the companies are looking for in their future professionals.
With the main goal of contributing to the students’ integration in the work marketplace, the UA booths and those from participating institutions offer comprehensive information to students on their career opportunities including self-employment, both in Spain and abroad.
The University of Alicante is especially committed to employability which is embodied in the development of projects such as UAemprende, "to enhance the student’s initiatives and provides them with training in enterprising skills and career development counseling", as Vice President for Student Nuria Grané said. In this sense, the "Employment & Self-Employment Marathon is attracting more and more interest every year with greater participation of both UA students and graduates", she added.
