New format advantages:

November on-line edition:

  1. Geographical outreach: involvement of students and graduates far away and viceversa possibility for companies outside Ticino to get to know USI students and graduates,
  2. Greater focus: more targeted participation (only upon registrations) by students and graduates interested in your company,
  3. Greater sustainability: less waste of time, resources and energy (no displacement),
  4. Greater involvement: chance to involve your colleagues from other locations and even more senior profiles directly from their office, in complete safety.

March on-campus edition:

  1. Follow-up from November
  2. One-to-one meetings with students
  3. Networking with other participating companies and USI Professors
  4. Direct interaction with the participants, in compliance with March 2021 health regulations.
