Hanken Network Day

The biggest networking event at Hanken!

 

When? TBA

Hanken Network Day is a forum for networking where Hanken students and company representatives meet during one day. Hanken Network Day is arranged annually in collaboration with The Student Union of Hanken School of Economics (SHS) at Hanken in Helsinki. In 2019 the event was organised for the ninth time.

This is a unique chance for the students to learn more about different career paths and make valuable contacts with interesting companies. For the companies it is a more than excellent chance to make a good impression on possible future colleagues.

Tips for participating companies

  • differentiate: think about how you could make your company stand out from other companies. Both visually and with your message.
  • your message: why is it important for the students to visit your stand on this particular day? What do they get that they cannot get anywhere else? Can they meet someone important at your company? Let them know!
  • communicate online: use your free Instagram stories post on Hanken's official Instagram account @hankenofficial. Use that platform to communicate why it is so important for the students to take the time and visit your stand! Also remember to use your own social media accounts and our hashtag #HND19
  • communication during the day: be active! Actively talk to the students and think about interesting ways of getting their attention. 
  • think long term: even if you only hire Master's students for your upcoming Trainee programme it is very important to build your company brand amongst the younger students too. It is going to be much easier to recruit them in a few years if they already know who you are!
