The job meeting of the Italian Schools of excellence
JobFair was established in 2014 as an initiative of the Career Service of the Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna, as an annual event of career day with the aim of creating a link between the academic world and the job market. Since the first edition the event had remarkable results and throughout the years the event has been growing and enlarging not only in the number of companies and students involved but also under the institutional point of view. In 2015 Scuola Normale Superiore, IUSS Pavia and IMT School joined JobFair and from 2017 onwards it involves all the six “Scuole Universitarie Superiori” (Scuola Normale Superiore, Scuola IMT Alti Studi Lucca, IUSS Pavia, SISSA from Trieste and Gran Sasso Science Institute from L’Aquila), and can be presented and recognised as the first job meeting of the Italian Schools of excellence.
In the 2020 JobFair’s online edition, 45 leading companies and NGOs participated representing numerous sectors, from consulting to the high-tech industry: more than 340 students from the six Schools (Honor students of undergraduate, Master's and PhD programs) met online carrying out 700 one-to-one interviews. In 2021 the 8th Edition of JOBFair will regularly take place on 13th and 14th October and will involve, besides students from the 6 Schools, some selected students from CCUM and Scuola Superiore di Catania. It will be possible to participate virtually or physically.
