Are you as excited as I am for the events coming up this week? You should be! Remember I mentioned in this post that upcoming details on Armada soon? Well, keep reading as Armada holds on Tuesday and Wednesday this week.
WHAT IS ARMADA?
It is the largest Scandinavian career fair hosted by Tekniska Högskolans Studentkår (THS) at KTH Royal Institute of Technology every year. This year, there are 171 companies in total and you can find the list of participating companies here. I love the way the list is split into categories. Hence, you have an idea of what companies fall in line with your reason for being at the fair. Also, clicking on each logo gives you a short description of the company alongside its precise location at the fair.
Downloading the app, “THS Armada” ensures you gain easy access to the above information. Also, it offers you an opportunity to find the top five companies that match your interests by taking a short quiz.

This presents an opportunity to have one-on-one talks with companies you are interested in. However, registration for this event is closed. Those who would be attending would have the opportunity of having a 20-minute dialogue with participating companies individually.
There’s this cool thing about THS Armada.It is certified as an eco-labelled event. I had a post on sustainability, in which I said that everyone has a part to play and can take steps towards acheiving the global sustainable goals by 2030 and as an attendant on THS Armada’s event, you can contribute to a more sustainable environment by the following options:
- Always chose vegetarian options – THS Armada only offers 100% vegetarian food at all events.
- Walk, bicycle or chose the bus/metro instead of taking the car.
- Chose tap water instead of bottled water.
- Avoid standby on your technical devices (phone, computer, tablet..)
- Sort your waste
- Turn the light off when you leave a room
- Only buy what you really need and take care of what you have.
- Take good care of each other
