    Some companies have contact talks which is a video conversation on the platform that you apply for in advance. It's a great opportunity to get personal contact at a company. It allows you complete attention from a company where you really can get the most out of your talk.

  • How do I talk to companies?

    Go into the stall of a company you want to talk to. Choose one of the chat topics in the stall and start chatting. The company representative can initiate a voice- or video call if you both want to talk in that way. Companies can also reach out to you when you are online! All initiated conversations can be continued after the fair as the chats are saved.
