CEMS Career Forum

Welcome to the CEMS Career Forum Information Page!

CEMS Career Forum, one of the highlight events of the CEMS community, is a 2-day recruitment and networking event taking place annually in November.

Career Forum provides a platform that connects over 1000 students and alumni with representatives from over 40 Corporate Partners representing global companies. The CEMS Career Forum is the perfect opportunity for CEMS students and young alumni to meet and interact with CEMS Corpoarate Partners, learn about opportunities for internships and permanent employment and also broaden their network.

From 2017 Corvinus University of Budapest is proud to host this important event for 3 years. In 2018 the event will be held on 9th-10th November.

The career forum offers for students and young graduates a rare opportunity to meet with recruitment experts from over 40 multinational companies in just one place, network with peers and maybe even take the first crucial step towards full employment by a CEMS Corporate Partner.

This multi-stakeholder event connects Corporate Partners, Students, Alumni and also Academic schools through the following activities:

 

Career training workshops

The aim of these workshops are to provide the participants with practical, ready-to-take skills, such as interview skills, networking, etc, that they can use during the job fair and later on.

Skill seminars

Skill seminars are designed to provide students with the opportunity to learn practical business skills in a very dynamic setting with one of the CEMS Corporate Partners. The goal is to foster a closer student-Corporate Partner relationship by having companies teaching students using their vast experience in the business world. These are CEMS accredited skill seminars which means that students may earn CEMS credits when completing such a seminar.

Pre-scheduled interviews

The aim of the interviews is to discuss potential recruitment opportunities within the company and get a deeper insight in the company’s activities and culture. Some companies consider the interview as a first step in the formal recruitment process, others consider the pre-scheduled interview as a first contact with a potentially interesting candidate that may lead to a formal interview and recruitment.

Job Fair

Networking is the primary benefit of attending the job fair, students can visit the information stands of each participating Corporate Partner and talk to the company representatives. At the job fair companies may offer an on-the-spot interview possibility on the day of the event. Students may contact company representatives after the Career Forum to apply for opportunities within their companies. It is also the perfect opportunity to meet other CEMS students and alumni from all over the world.

Startup Challenge



Startup Challenge is a recent new element of the Career Forum that reflects the rising popularity of entrepreneurship as a career. Under the guidance of successful CEMS alumni enterpreneurs, the Startup Challenge will involve teams from many CEMS schools and push them to their limit as they conceptualize, develop, model, and ultimately pitch their ideas, all within two days. Cems students will be selected by the Student Board to come to Budapest and work together in teams to develop their startup ideas, get mentorship support and ultimately pitch their ideas to a panel of judges consisting of CEMS Corporate Partners and entrepreneurs.

Networking cocktail & dinner

A selected group of students will be also invited to this networking event. Details for students will be communicated by the CEMS Head Office.

 

CEMS Gala

All Career Forum participants are invited to take part in the student party that will take place as a closure of the event. This is a unique opportunity to meet, broaden one’s network, share first impressions after the Career Forum and enjoy the last night all together.
