Popular exhibition for companies and students

Published: 24 November 2017

The exhibition SKARV was carried out for the first time in Skellefteå with successful results. Both students and companies were pleased with the exhibition and having the opportunity to connect with each other.

– There were a lot of people and it's fun for students to engage, so it is positive. Many students could not come at once, and it was good that different student groups came during the day, says André Andersson, Corporate Responsible at SKARV.

The exhibition started at lunchtime with p resentation from the 13 companies in the Forum hall for about 38 students. Afterwards, students and companies could meet in different stands to get to know each other better. One of those who took the opportunity to attract students was Kim Salsbring from Rejlers Sverige AB. During the day he spoke to several students who seemed interested in getting into work life.

– We have been to similar fairs earlier and it is a good way for us to reach the students and get in contact with them.

Moa Brännström is a graduate engineer and she was there with her class mates to meet companies.

– This is a very good initiative to get to know companies through a company exhibition. For me, it's also time for exams, so it's very appropriate.
