550 students and 36 companies. What an accomplishment! SCOPE Maastricht made the biggest recruiting event in the South of the Netherlands successfully happen again online!
The two-days event, taking place on the 3rd and 4th of March, was kicked off with a welcoming speech by the MBDS president Svenja Nitschke, followed by presentations, workshops, Q&A sessions, student chats, networking and a virtual booth. Among other companies Nike, Procter & Gamble, Qualtrics, Simon Kucher & Partners and Bloomberg participated at the MBDS 2021 to recruit students for internships, trainee programs and fulltime positions. The participating students, coming from all business tracks, are mainly studying in their 3rd year bachelors or masters.
The virtual platform hopin, which was used for this event, turned out to be a good fit for SCOPE and the virtual recruiting event. SCOPE will continue using hopin for the future until physical events are possible again.
The whole MBDS committee and part of the SCOPE board operated from the campus Tapijn to take care of all participating companies and students and react to any issues that might have occurred.
Especially in uncertain times like these, with a whole pandemic going on, it is more important than ever to invest in your future career, or in the case of companies, future talents.
We want to thank our MBDS committee members: Our president Svenja, our externals: Eline & Luca, our operations team: Luisa & Lotta and our marketing responsible: Caro for their hard work they have put into this recruiting event to make it a successful one. Without your passion the MBDS would not have been possible this year. Also, a big thank you to our career commissioner Emilie for all what you have done to make this virtual event work. Additionally, we thank all our long-term partners who are joining our MBDs since a couple of years and did not make an exemption this year due to covid19 and our online format. We are glad that you have faith and trust in us, and we highly value our partnerships with you. Furthermore, we were happy to welcome new companies to this event and hope we can establish long term relationships with you as well. Another thank you goes to all participating students. We hoped you liked this online version of the MBDS edition and are happy to welcome you again in November!
