As the popular saying goes: looking for a job is a full-time job. Fortunately, MaDI students have the best opportunity for making the job seeking process short and sweet with Forempleo UC3M career fair, the biggest career fair for students in Madrid.

Job seeking can sometimes be a long, time-consuming endeavor. It’s not always easy to land a job opportunity that meets your interests, ambitions, career goals and salary expectations. On average, employed job seekers spend 11 hours a week looking for jobs, while unemployed ones spend 25 hours. This includes, time devoted to composing and refining job search communications, such as: resumes, cover letters and follow-up letters or emails, searching for and applying to job posts on job sites and employer websites, identifying organizations, industries and locations of interest, traveling to and participating in interviews and taking part in various networking activities.

So much to do, so little time! However, MaDI students are not afraid to take the challenge. More so if they count on Forempleo UC3M career fair, one of the biggest student career fair in Madrid.
