Company book

The standard formula for these two pages is on page one an advertisement (with pictures) of your company and on page two general information. Here you say who you are (company name + logo), what you do, where you work (Belgium, Europe, …) and what kind of people you’re looking for.

Resume book

The CVs of the final year students are bundled in a resume book that will be delivered electronically after the IR Job Fair. The printed version will be given at the IR Job Fair itself.
