During the fair our students have the opportunity to meet over one hundred companies and organizations, to connect and learn more about each other and discuss future opportunities. Our vision is to help our students and fellow classmates to develop a strong purpose that will keep them focused, provide meaning, both professionally and personally, and to help them overcome any future obstacles. We offer opportunities such as participating in Interview Sessions as well as being a part of our crew during the fair, which enables great possibilities for our students to network with interesting companies and thereby opening up for new and valuable relationships. Every year we also open up the opportunity for 16 new and eager students to take part our project committee, creating and making GADDEN better than ever at the same time as having your best year at Handels so far.

Apply for an interview session
GADDEN is connecting companies and students. Through an interview session, you as a student get the opportunity to network and make contacts with future employers. An interview session can be arranged in different ways, for example like a pure job interview or as an opportunity for the company to tell you more about their business.
As GADDEN usually takes place in November but the 2021 fair will take place in February 2022, we will offer opportunities for two separate occasions for interview sessions. These occasions will take place during the 17-18th of November, as well as during the fair in February.
I have always been interested in the banking world and heard a lot about Handelsbanken as a company. When I studied my second year at the School of Business, Economics and Law, I saw that you could apply for Interview Sessions with Handelsbanken, which seemed to be a very good opportunity. ... Sometime after my session, I was contacted by Handelsbanken again and they asked if I could come up with a second interview. In the spring, I started working part-time at one of the bank's offices in Gothenburg. After that, I worked at Handelsbanken for two summers and but also alongside my studies as a customer service associate. My advice to other students is to seek Interview Sessions even if you are studying your first or second year. It is a good opportunity to meet your dream company and to strengthen your network!READ MORE
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!READ MORE
