The 8th annual Consensus job fair, known as CARMA, held on Thursday, February 7 at the University hospital campus. The event is organized every February for students at the LiU Faculty of Medicine. The fair is usually an opportunity for students from Linköping and Norrköping to interact with representatives from companies, regions and municipalities. At the exhibitions, students have the opportunity to learn about future career options and for some students it is a time to land summer jobs.
This year’s labor market fair was attended majorly by healthcare companies and regions looking to recruit doctors and nurses. Several healthcare facilities in Linkoping were represented at the fair. Their representatives were on ground to explain available opportunities at the companies as well as requirements for employment. They handed out pamphlets and souvenirs to interested students.
Trade unions representatives were also present at the fair to enlighten soon to be members. Students learned about the benefits of belonging to a trade union. Interested students were gifted with goody bags and free food vouchers.
