This year we proudly hosted another edition of the Maastricht Consultancy Day 

In October 2018 we welcomed 17 companies in Maastricht to share their knowledge with students and engage in meaningful discussions. Under the theme “Building a bridge to you future” companies such as Accenture, BearingPoint, Capco, Capgemini, Corporate Value Associates, Deloitte, DHL Consulting, EY Luxembourg, EY Parthenon, Inverto, Kienbaum, Next Digital Group, PWC Deutschland, PWC Luxembourg, Simon-Kucher, SMP AG, Telekom Centre for Strategic Project joined us on that day.

Furthermore, around 250 students successfully applied for the activities on the Maastricht Consultancy Day and therefore were able to establish a network on that day at the Vaeshartelt.

The day began with an inspiring speech of Simon de Jong in which he touched upon his research about consultancy and dignity. Afterwards, the students attended the company workshops and interviews where they could convince the companies of their talent and ideas.

Following the first block, various dishes were offered in form of a buffet. During the lunch students could even further engage with the recruiters and enjoy the delicious food and a cup of coffee.

During the second block students could join a second round of workshops and interviews. Furthermore, Así and Carrierebus were available to help the students with their CVs.

In the late afternoon, a company fair was build up for all the students and company representatives where they could casually get in contact with each other over a glass of wine or beer.

Finally, the day concluded with recruitment dinners in some of Maastricht`s best restaurants.

Overall, the event has been a success and students as well as companies were more than satisfied by the professionality and quality of the event.
