Erasmus Recruitment

Erasmus Recruitment (ER) enables all students of Erasmus School of Economics and Rotterdam School of Management (RSM) to meet with their potential future employers and take the first step into their careers. The wide range of career opportunities is offered by ER’s two main components: the Erasmus Recruitment Days (ERD) and the Erasmus Recruitment Platform (ERP). Since 1997, the ERD has been the most acclaimed recruitment event of Erasmus University Rotterdam. In 2015, the ERP was established as the bridge between the Erasmus students and the corporate world.

The platform is one of the core pillars of ER. On this platform, employers get the chance to connect with students by communicating their latest internships and vacancies or by inviting students to their recruitment events. In 2020, the platform was completely revamped in order to provide year-round recruitment opportunities.

The ER Days is another core pillar of ER. It is the annual offline extension of the online platform. It is the largest on-campus recruitment event in Europe, with over 100 companies and 2.500 students participating every year. The ER Days takes place in January/February for two weeks and includes activities such as workshops, trainings, and speed-interviews.

ER is a joint venture between Economic Faculty association Rotterdam (EFR) of Erasmus School of Economics and Study Association STAR of RSM. The ER Board is composed of students of both Erasmus School of Economics and RSM to represent the interests of all stakeholders. The Board works in close cooperation with the board members of EFR and STAR. Being on the ER Board is the perfect way to practice your stakeholder management and people skills!
