You will be presented with a unique opportunity to meet over a hundred representatives from prestigious companies of various specializations, who will be more than happy to answer all your questions regarding vacant job opportunities, salaries, benefits and much more.

What can you expect?

  • Meeting over 100 representatives in the course of 3 days
  • Getting a complete overview of the job market, incl. job requirements or even salaries
  • A diverse accompanying programme – a photo-booth, CV consultations, coaching and much more!
  • Having a chance to win 11 000 CZK when being extra pro-active
  • All of this from the comfort of your home!

Technical requirements

The fair itself can be imagined as a role playing computer game. You will be an avatar walking through a virtual world using your mouse and keyboard, stumbling upon other students, alumni and, of course, booths of individual companies with their representatives in them, ready to have a chat with you in real time using a microphone. Moreover, both of you will have a webcam which turns on above your avatar whenever you set your foot on a chat zone, e.g. a booth. Seeing each other with other avatars creates an immersive experience and makes the communication even easier. Every company booth will have two separate chat zones right next to them, where you can have 1 on 1 private conversations with the representatives.

In order to use the app you will need a microphone, a webcam and a stable internet connection. If you have a laptop, using a touchpad is not recommended, though it is still possible.

The link to download the software will be available here soon.

We have also prepared a separate visitors’ guidebook, which will help you navigate and improve your chances to get your dream job.

Proactive visitors contest

Rules:

  • Visit at least 9 exhibitors’ booths from all 3 islands combined (3 from island A, 3 from B and 3 from C)
  • Obtain a special code from each exhibitor. In order to access this secret code you will have to actively participate in the conversations with them. Ask questions, browse their promo content on the media screen in the booth, simply let them know you’re interested.
  • There are numerous billboards with QR codes around the virtual worlds.
  • These QR codes can be scanned with your own smartphones and will redirect you to a questionnaire, where you will then paste the secret codes.
  • You will enter a draw where you can win a voucher of your choice.
  • Each winner will be drawn every day at 17:00.

The condition of the competition is that everyone competes for themselves and everyone must obtain the secret codes themselves. We monitor the movement of each avatar in the virtual world – entering codes from booths you have not visited is a scam and you will be excluded from the competition.

The choice of vouchers is as follows:

  • Fancy dinner – invitation to a luxury restaurant
  • Online relax – voucher for a special online yoga course
  • Pamper yourself – cosmetics voucher

KNOW THE RULESDo NOT share the codes with other contestants. The software is able to recognize your own virtual presence at the booths and match it with given codes. If you manage to copy the codes from other participants you will be automatically disqualified.

Accompanying programme at the fair

We have prepared an interesting accompanying programme during the fair, which will take place mainly on Island D. Each day you’ll get a chance to experience:

CV & LinkedIn profile consultancy

Would you like your CV to shine at your next job interview? Would you like to gain an advantage during the selection procedure? Or perhaps, would you like to catch others’ interests by tuning your LinkedIn profile? Come along to the CV & LinkedIn consultancy booth, our HR specialists will be there to help you! You’ll also get an exclusive chance to trial run an interview in both Czech and English language.

Coaching

What job to choose after graduation? How to force to finish school? What field of study to choose from? Is it better to start a business? Is it good to work at school? How to combine study and work? How to have more time for yourself?

Do you have these questions about your studies and your current or future career?

Now you have the opportunity to try for free how coaching works and at the same time how it can help solve questions and problems related not only to study but also to career and personal life. Coaching is suitable for everyone who wants to make full use of their inner potential.

What is good to know before a coaching session?

  • one session is limited to 30 minutes
  • for a meeting, it is good to prepare “your topic” with you, from your personal, study or work life, in which you want to move on
  • the coach is neither a counsellor, nor a teacher, nor a mentor, nor a psychologist or a psychotherapist – he will not give advice or answers to your questions but will help you find the answers and solutions within yourself
  • we respect the code of ethics, in particular, complete confidentiality, equality and voluntariness

Student organizations and workplaces of the Prague University of Economics and Business

Are you interested in getting more involved in the school? Now’s your chance! Come and visit selected student organizations and workplaces of the Prague University of Economics and Business.

Meet your classmates at our fair and visit the photo-booth, where you can have a joint photo taken as a souvenir. The photo-booth is located on island D. The photos will be published after the fair on our Facebook profile.

Do you feel that due to the limited possibilities for travelling abroad, your ability to communicate in a foreign language is declining considerably? Come to us in the selected language-booth and speak in the language you wish to practice. The language-booths will be located on island D and will always be marked accordingly.
