Well-attended livestream ACE Automotive Career Day 2021
This year we chose again for a digital version of the ACE Automotive Career Day. Just like last year we used an online event platform through SoMMedia and even expanded the program with Meet The Professional sessions. Some 30 leading companies gave the students of the automotive programs at the Fontys University of Applied Sciences and the HAN an exclusive look behind the scenes.
The livestream was once again well attended this year, the digital version of the ACE Automotive Career Day was a great success again! Through company presentations with a Q&A facility, students had the opportunity to take an exclusive look inside the automotive companies. In the afternoon Meet The Professional sessions took place where students could digitally interact with young professionals from different companies. Various topics were discussed such as job profiles within the automotive industry but also topics such as competencies and future perspectives were not left out. For the third and fourth year students, Online Speeddates were organized in the afternoon, during these one-on-one conversations they could get to know the company better and sometimes already discuss concrete internship and/or graduation assignments.
The livestream was again visited in large numbers by interested automotive students. Every company presentation and Meet The Professional session turned out to be followed by around 200 visitors. We as ACE are very proud of this!
Automotive professionals of the Universities of Applied Sciences are able to understand and interpret the complex challenges in the field of transport concepts, sustainability and technology, and to create solutions in teams with other professionals. The automotive industry welcomes graduated HBO automotive engineers who further develop the automotive field with open arms, as evidenced by the many companies that took part in the online presentations and Match & Meet sessions this year. This often results in a good match.
