SAMarbete is a labor market fair for social scientists. The purpose of SAMarbete is to create a place for employers and students to network. It is also a place where students can be inspired, find paths to take after their studies and meet future employers. At the fair, there are organizations that can offer students part-time jobs, internships, subjects for bachelor’s and master’s theses and perhaps a future career. SAMarbete gives students the opportunity to create an understanding of what the labor market has to offer. Check out our website www.samarbete.org for more information about the labor market day.
