Campus engagement prepares students for work life

Some students work harder than others, arranging this year's work fair, Agoradagen, while studying full-time. But when you are an engaged student you also benefit.
Filippa Elestam, Linn Forsander, Sophia Lindberg, Maike Steigemann and Jonathan Lundberg from Service Management, and Louise Johansson from Strategic Communication, was part of the project group for Agoradagen.

The work fair of Campus Helsingborg celebrates fifteen years. The event is managed by a project group within the students' union, the participants of which signed up for long days of unpaid work on the side of their full-time studies.

Project manager Sophia Lindberg have had everything under control and helped out when needed.

– I've applied for scholarships, reached out to newspapers and held weekly meetings. In the early days I cooked lunch for everyone, but ultimately I had to delegate.

Louise Johansson and Linn Forsander has been responsible for recruiting exhibitors and agree that they have both gained skills that will be an advantage in their professional life.

– I've learnt to make contact with people, says Louise. I'm an extremely social person, but I've had to get used to things like phone conferences. And we made a speech at the department's employees' meeting, which I wouldn't have done before. It's a confidence boost.

– You start growing into your professional role and learn what kind of job you want to have in the future, says Linn.

Around forty exhibitors, both local and international companies and organisations, was present at the fair.

– Agoradagen is an opportunity for companies to make contact with students when it comes to, for example, internships, says Maike Steigemann, economy responsible. It's also beneficial for them to be visible and increase the awareness in students about their company.

For the students at Campus Helsingborg, the Agoradagen could be the ticket that opens the doors of an attractive organisation.

– It's more or less a demand that the exhibitors have something to offer, it can be a summer replacement, an intership or a case for thesis writing, says Sophia.

– It's so cool because the event is completely managed by students, says Maike.

– We've had fun while doing it! concludes Sophia.
