The Polyvorträge are a series of presentations taking place before and during Polymesse. Around 30 companies get the opportunity to present topics concerning a product or service of theirs. These presentations are a chance to get an insight to typical projects and the working atmosphere of the companies as well as possibilities to enter the company (be it employment, internship or master thesis).

No registration is required for the Polyvorträge.

Are these statements true or false, worthy career conceptions or rather misconceptions?

Career (Mis)conceptions (Thursday, 26th of March 2020 at 5.15 p.m.)

Speakers: Christine Kaiser & Lorena Coletti, ETH Career Center

Description: In the last several years, LinkedIn [1] has become an increasingly popular way to connect professionally. More employers are using LinkedIn as a recruitment and hiring tool, and students and professionals are also using it in their job searches.

Join us during this presentation as we explore how LinkedIn can help us answer the following questions:

-How do I find companies / people who would be interested in my profile?
-How do I find companies who are hiring in my field of interest?
-What kind of jobs / career paths are open to me?
-Where do people work with my profile? How did they get there?
-How can I optimize my LinkedIn profile in order to be found (or not) by recruiters and hiring managers?

Ideally, you will have your tablet/laptop with you so that you can explore the platform synchronously with us.
