During the third year of my bachelor with a major in Business, I met my current employer Handelsbanken at the GADDEN fair 2020. Due to restrictions, the fair was digital, and a friend persuaded me to contact them. I got in contact with their representant, and the contact led to a job interview. My plan at the time was to study master’s if I didn’t find a job I really wanted. The first job was not for me, so I politely said no to that offer. ... To my surprise, they contacted me again for an interview as an advisor at a Handelsbanken office, a position I really wanted. Without making this first contact at the fair, I think it would be hard to land a job like this. My advice to other students is to talk to companies during the fair and also apply for Interview Sessions to get even more time to get to know the companies. The fair is a great opportunity to network and get connections bringing future work opportunities, and making you stand out from the crowd.

It was during an Interview Session at GADDEN 2017 that I first met my current employer Academic Work. Every now and then, Academic Work did not have any employment they could offer me, but they asked me to keep my eyes open for future offers. A few months later I saw that they were looking for a "Staffing and Recruitment Assistant" at Academic Work here in Gothenburg. ... I saw that the application period was about to be over, but I applied and sent a message to the person I met at GADDEN. It only took a few hours before I got a call. It was Academic Work who called and told me that they had heard a lot about me. Two interviews later, the job was mine. I do not think I would have had a chance if it were not for my Interview Session at GADDEN!
