The Icelandic branch of AIESEC, which the largest student-run organization in the world, is organizing the 13th annual Career Days in Iceland on March 9. The goal is to form relationships between businesses and universities in Iceland.
“They are organized the same way as AIESEC Career Days in other countries and are considered an opportunity for students to get to know the business life and for companies to get to know young and ambitious students,” the organizer of the 2007 Career Days in Iceland, Ómar Ásbjörn Óskarsson, told icelandreview.com.
Svafa Grönfeld, the rector of Reykjavík University, gives the opening speech of the Career Days at 11 am next Friday in Saga Hotel in Reykjavík.
The Career Days in Iceland are actually just one day while the event usually spans a few days in other countries. Óskarsson expects 4,000 guests to attend.
AIESEC (Association Internationale des Etudiants en Sciences Economiques) is a non-political, independent, non-profit organization run by students from nearly 800 universities in 84 countries.
The organization was founded in Belgium in 1948 and reached Iceland in 1961.
