VYY works to promote the career ambitions of its members by means of the annual Contact recruitment fair. VYY’s Contact Fair brings both nationally and internationally operating companies to the forefront for Vaasa University students to discuss career opportunities. The fair that takes place in January has grown over its 20-year history into VYY’s biggest annual event.
At the fair, students can establish contacts with future employers, as well as access various summer job offers. Traditionally, the fair also includes a CV-clinic where students can polish their job search tactics with the assistance of professionals. Most importantly, the fair helps students pick up ideas for their master’s thesis and to connect with potential thesis commissioners.
