The University of Alicante Main Library outdoor space will held on Wednesday the 21th University Employment & Self-Employment Marathon, a forum designed to encourage contact between companies and institutions, as well as public and private organisations with the University of Alicante students and graduates by providing employment opportunities, external internships, information, enthusiasm and resources for their incorporation into the business world as employees or self-employed, guiding them on self-employment.

The Employment and Self-Employment Marathon is an in-person fair where students and graduates establish direct contact with national companies that require qualified personnel. Likewise, it is a meeting point with counselling entities that focus on employment and self-employment.  This fair is an ideal setting for the spread of real opportunities through job offers, internships or self-employment projects.

The 21st University Employment & Self-Employment Marathon has been organised by the UA Career Development Office (GIPE) and 32 companies, 14 associations and 12 University of Alicante services have already confirmed their participation. Attendees will be able to find information on how to apply for a job or what the exhibited companies are looking for, the possibilities of self-employment or continuing education.

will open at 10 am and will run throughout the day until 6 pm.



In the context of this Marathon, an Entrepreneurship and Social Innovation Triathlon will be held with two prizes of €1,000 each awarded to the best social innovation project and social entrepreneurship project by the Office of the Vice President for Students and Employment.
