Alicante. Monday 14 May 2018

Next Wednesday, the 20th edition of the UA Employment and Self-Employment Marathon will take place in the Main Library colonnade. The event is a forum for companies, institutions and public and private organisations to come into contact with UA students and graduates and offer them new job opportunities and internships, information, encouragement and resources to enter the labour market, either as an employee or as a self-employee.

At the Employment and Self-Employment Marathon, students and graduates will find booths where they can establish direct, face-to-face contact with Spanish companies looking for qualified employees and organisations that can advise them on employment and self-employment. The event provides a wealth of excellent opportunities, including job offers, internships and self-employment projects.

The 20th edition of the Employment and Self-Employment Marathon, organised by the UA Career Development Office (GIPE), will involve 32 companies, 13 associations and 13 UA services. Visitors will find information on the requirements to apply for a job, the needs of several companies, self-employment or further training.

The marathon will run from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. The programme includes a lecture on employment and self-employment in the multimedia room at 12 noon and another on what is needed to become an exceptional social worker, in the same room at 1 p.m.



The Marathon will also feature a Social Entrepreneurship and Innovation Triathlon, where the best social innovation project and the best social entrepreneurship project will each receive a €1,000 prize from the UA Office of the Vice President for Students and Employment. Another activity available will be "Everis fuga room", a challenging escape room full of enigmas and puzzling riddles, with only one way out: solving them all.

During the morning, moreover, several companies will deliver more detailed presentations aimed at those interested in taking part in recruitment processes.
