European Career Fair
What is the European Career Fair about?
The MIT European Career Fair (ECF) in Boston/Cambridge is an annual recruiting event, organized by members of the European Club at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Our mission is to connect top-tier US students and young professionals with European companies, universities and non-profit organizations and to inform about career opportunities in Europe.
This career fair is the largest of its kind in the United States with up to 100 attending companies and 3000-5000 registered candidates. Our candidates are students, working professionals and recent alumni of Ivy League, and renowned European and American universities. Our company participants are diverse, ranging from multinational corporations to non-profit organizations in the research/ technology as well as business and consulting sector.
Full-profit companies from recent years are amongst others:
Bayer, Roche, BMW, Shell, Volkswagen, Siemens, McKinsey, Boston Consulting Group, GE, P&G, Total, Audi, Novartis, Allianz, Munich RE, ABB, PNB Paribas, Bosch, IBM, Philips, Generali, ING, Cisco, Merck, BASF, SAP, Sennheiser, Thales Group and many more.
Our participating non-profit companies from previous years are amongst others:
The European Commission, the German Academic Exchange Service and the Max Planck Society.
Revenues of the European Career Fair were greatly used to sponsor fellowships in collaboration with MISTI (MIT International Science and Technology Initiatives) enabling MIT students to intern at European non-profit organizations. More formation on our collaboration with MISTI can be found here.
