Erasmus Recruitment Service
The Erasmus Recruitment Service (General Partnership) facilitates students of Erasmus University Rotterdam by providing a wide range of career opportunities offered by its two main components: the Erasmus Recruitment Days and the Erasmus Recruitment Platform. Since 1997, the Erasmus Recruitment Days is the most acclaimed recruitment event of Erasmus University Rotterdam.
In 2015, the Erasmus Recruitment Platform was established as the personal bridge between the Erasmus student and the corporate world. The Erasmus Recruitment Service is an initiative by the Economic Faculty association Rotterdam (EFR) and the Study Association Rotterdam School of Management (STAR).
The Erasmus Recruitment Platform is the personal bridge between the Erasmus student and the corporate world. With expansive company profiles and a large supply of internships, vacancies and events, students can orientate on potential employers. Another unique feature is the environment where students can find professional advice on entering today’s labor market.
About Erasmus Recruitment
Erasmus Recruitment (ER) enables all students from the Erasmus School of Economics (ESE) and Rotterdam School of Management (RSM) to get in touch with their future employers. ER provides the means for all students to build a rewarding career throughout and after their student life. This is realised by facilitating online and offline recruitment activities
One of the core pillars of ER is the online recruitment platform. This is a year-round platform where employers get the chance to connect with students by communicating their latest internships and vacancies, or by inviting students to their recruitment events. Additionally, employers gain brand awareness through their company profile on ER. The online recruitment platform creates the opportunity for both students and companies to contact each other through a chat function.
The Erasmus Recruitment Days is another core pillar of ER and is the annual offline extension of the year-round online platform. This annual event is the largest on-campus recruitment event in Europe, with over 100 companies and 2500 participants every year. The Erasmus Recruitment Days took place from January 24th until February 10th 2023. During these two weeks, companies will be able to get in touch with talented students with various backgrounds, primarily in business, economics and econometrics.
