It’s that time of the year when we start looking for Master Thesis and Internship opportunities. Before the big career fair hosted by THS Armada, there are many events lined up to help meet with some of these companies in smaller groups and one of these is LUNCH LECTURES!!!
WHY LUNCH LECTURES?
For me, lunch lectures are literally having the best of both worlds. I do not have to substitute lectures for a good networking event neither do I have to think of buying lunch (haha!). Then, to make it better, I can learn more about these companies, talk to their representatives and obtain good contacts 😉
You see how cool lunch lectures are? People always ask me questions concerning job opportunities in Sweden and KTH. Based on my experiences, this is one of the ways to easily network with companies you are interested in or even get to know more about certain companies in your area.
HOW DO WE GET TO KNOW ABOUT THESE LUNCH LECTURES?
There’s this joke amongst my friends and I when trying to find any information and I mean, literally, any information, “Google is your friend”. For these lunch lectures, I do exactly the same thing – I periodically google, “KTH LUNCH LECTURES” and now that Armada is very close, I have included “THS ARMADA LUNCH LECTURE“. With these, you easily find the websites and all other information at your fingertips.
For THS hosted lunch lectures, register IMMEDIATELY you see an event you’re interested in. They always get fully booked early. Also, one extra tip is that sometimes, some students sign up and do not show up for thee events. Therefore, if it is a company you’re really interested in and it says, “fully booked”. You can set a reminder on your calendar and show up! You might just be the lucky student who gets to replace someone else 😉
As we all search for internships or Master Thesis or just knowledge on what really happens in the various industries we are interested in? I would say, goodluck! and hopefully, see you in one of these lunch lectures:)
