MSc students start looking for summer internships as early as in September, peaking during October/November. Second year students will typically look for permanent positions during the same time but many will start their active search later and continue during the spring semester.
BSc students will typically look for summer internships during early autumn in their second year and for permanent positions all through their third year.
Can I advertise opportunities to alumni?
The Career Hub is open to both students and job-seeking alumni and many actively use our online job board.
Can you recommend individual students to my company?

To arrange on-campus events, you can contact the president of the Business Committee of the SSE Students' Association (SASSE) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
