MIT European Career Fair 2021

Belgium makes its first presence at the MIT European Career Fair on Thursday 25th of February.

Now in its 25th year, the MIT European Career Fair is organized by the MIT Euro Club and is the largest of its kind in the United States, with over 90 attending organizations and around 2500 registered candidates. The candidates are students, working professionals and recent alumni from renowned American and European universities and the Fair is free to register and virtually attend.

With aid of Flanders in the USA and WBI, the Harvard-MIT Belgian Society invited the Belgian universities to attend to this year’s virtual edition and Belgium will be represented for the first time by Belgian universities KULeuven, UCLouvain, UGhent and ULB together with the Belgian company Janssen Pharmaceuticals. To celebrate this and to promote life and careers in Belgium, the Belgian Ambassador to the US Jean-Arthur Régibeau will hold a virtual session/presentation in the virtual Belgium booth – assisted by Flanders in the USA and WBI.

We kindly invite you to register (freely) and join us at the MIT European Career Fair on the 25th of February. The Fair is open and free to all candidates with interest in pursuing careers in Europe. The Belgian virtual session is planned at 10 AM (ET) and we kindly ask you to visit, besides the other European booths, our first Belgian representation at the Fair.
