Career Day 2022 

The activities are fully booked, but you can still join the Career Area, where more than 35 companies are ready to chat, network and show you what they are working on. So sign up for Timeslot 1 or 2!

Is your future in the Danish food and agriculture business?

An old success is back again in Agro Food Park this fall. On September 21st Agro Food Park, Foodjob Nordic and Business Region Aarhus are inviting all students to an exciting and inspirational day with presentations, workshops and networking. Grab all your study buddies and learn about your future opportunities for a career in food and agriculture. 

And no, you do not need to be a food scientist or nutritional expert to be part of this business. Food and agriculture companies need employees within a wide range of fields. There is a need for engineers, business developers, accountants, communicators, marketers. Basically anything that you can think of in a company!

More than 30 companies and 500 students will participate in this event. The Agro Food Park Career Day will this year happen in the newly built Agro Food Park 26.

There are two similar timeslots that you can sign up for, one at 10.00-13.00 and another at 13.30-16.30, so choose the one which fits you the best. Identical for both timeslots will be the career area, where more than 35 companies will have different booths, showcasing what they work with. Here it is just up to you to network, ask questions and have interesting conversations with all the companies. There is a list of some of the companies further down on this page.
