ORGANISE THE ERASMUS RECRUITMENT DAYS 2020 Application deadline April 28th
ERASMUS RECRUITMENT DAYS The Erasmus Recruitment Days is the largest and most professional on-campus recruitment event in Europe, organised for students and by students. The event takes over the entire campus in the first two weeks of February. During the Erasmus Recruitment Days more than 2500 students will get in touch with over 130 different companies. By letting companies and students participate in various activities, the ERD offers students in all study phases an ideal opportunity to see what the job market has to offer and the opportunity to meet their future employer.
Every committee member has his/her own responsibilities. Among others, these entail selling the project to companies, designing the marketing materials, managing the website and leading the promotion activities in order to receive thousands of subscriptions. Nevertheless, the most important task is working together as a team in order to organize a succesful event. Would you like to get the incredible experience of organising the Erasmus Recruitment Days?

TESTIMONIAL Iris van der Heijden Treasurer ERD 2012 “Although my time as treasurer for the ERD seems an incredibly long time ago, I still perceive the impact of the experiences I gained back then. One not to underestimate aspect is – although cliché -, the close relationship I have built with my committee members (currently also friends, colleagues and roommates). Now in 2019, our ‘seven-year anniversary’ year, the chemistry in the group is still the same and the inside jokes stay hilarious. During my time as ERD committee member, I was not so much focused on job market orientation as I was on organizing the event itself. However, the second díd shape my career, through making me better positioned for the fun and challenging job I have right now, as Supply Chain Strategy Consultant at Deloitte Consulting. The two most important things I have learned are: taking responsibility and having a hands-on mentality.
Through organizing the ERD I experienced that details that would never be in a study book, such as the color of snack trays or the image on a painting in the recruiter room, can make the difference. To close off: while writing this, I actually feel eager to go back five years and apply again. Therefore I can without a doubt, recommend everybody to go for it!”
