WELCOME TO UTNARM 2021

Utnarm is Uppsala Union of Engineering and Science Students' Career Fair, held on Thursday week 45 every year.

During an intense day, the students get the opportunity to meet with companies and organizations from multiple business areas and industries. It's a great platform for students and industries to meet and discuss future thesis, summer jobs and employment.

At Utnarm, SciTech's students get the opportunity to find inspiration, motivation, and valuable contacts for the future. The fair is on November 11 and is preceded by two weeks filled with exciting events to prepare students on what is expected of them when they have graduated.

Our vision is to create the best possible venue between companies and students. Therefore, we create a platform where you can meet and share experiences through a variety of interfaces.

HOW DO YOU PREPARE?

It’s important to prepare yourselves before a virtual career fair. To get the most out of Utnarm, make sure to start preparing early.

  • Create a profile - First of all, create a profile on the platform and sign up with your student email. The next step is to fill the profile and potentially add a resume (CV).
  • Register to the fair - Register to the fair by going to the event page and clicking on "register"
  • Browse companies - Check what companies and organizations are attending and which ones you are interested in. You can sort companies according to how the available jobs match your profile. You can also filter companies by industry and what they offer in our company catalogue.
  • Do background research - Learn about the companies you are interested in talking to by reading about them in their stall and visiting their website.
  • Elevator pitch - At any career fair, it is important to market yourself in a good way. Prepare an elevator pitch to get the company interested in you.
  • Prepare questions - Prepare questions you want to ask the companies, preferably follow-up questions on things you have read.
  • Visit the fair - Attend the fair on November 11th and follow up on your contacts afterwards.

What to do in a Virtual Fair?

A virtual career fair is quite similar to a physical career fair. You get to meet and chat online with potential employers from numerous different companies and organizations and hear more about their work, organization, values, and opportunities.

Before the event, you can learn about the companies by visiting their virtual stall on the platform. The companies can post jobs, videos, scheduled meeting slots, company descriptions, and much more in the stall. The event lobby has been open since 29th October!

  • Chat with Companies: During the event, you have the chance to chat with representatives from the companies and organizations, just like in a physical fair. In addition to writing to companies, you can request a video call or voice call for a more personal experience. Don’t be afraid to talk to companies!
  • Webinars & Scheduled Video Meetings: During the fair day, you can also attend webinars on the fair and sign up for a video conversation with the companies. A webinar can be a presentation by a company or similar, an interview or a panel discussion that is live on the platform. As a student, you have the chance to ask questions during the webinar. A video meeting is a short one-on-one conversation with a company representative that you can sign up for. The available slots can be found on the company’s virtual stall. This is a great opportunity to get some insights more tailored to your interest! Note: You can only book one slot per company so make sure you think about who to talk to!
  • Breakout Rooms: At the fair, some companies will have a breakout session where they can reach a handful of you for a discussion about their organization, work culture and opportunities! You can sign up for the breakout room at the company’s virtual stall.

LOUNGE

Utnarm is known for our homemade fika which is greatly appreciated by both students and exhibitors. Our fika comes in great varieties! Whether you are vegan, gluten intolerant or eat everything there will be something for you in our lounge! At the student lounge you will find a classic Swedish fika. We will have different lounge areas where you can hang out with your friends or go to the virtual fair. There will also be a help desk where you can ask questions about Graduateland.
