What is PhD Career Day and who is it for?

PhD Career Day is an annual event organized by AU Career PhD & JR where young researchers (both PhD and Junior Researchers) and leading Danish and International companies can meet and network. 

PhD Career Day is a great opportunity to meet the representatives from these leading companies. You can hear what they are looking for, figure out what they can offer and make some great contacts that might be valuable for your future career!
