Chalmers Studentkårs Arbetsmarknadsdagar, CHARM, is one of Scandinavia’s leading career fairs that is arranged every February on Chalmers campus. There are over 170 companies from different areas of business coming to CHARM to meet our students and show the students what they have to offer during and after their studies.
CHARM is arranged by the CHARM committee that is run by one project leader that works on a full time -basis with CHARM and the student union. Along with the project leader, there are 17 students that work in the committee parallel their studies. There are also a project group and about 160 CHARMhosts that help the committee with their work to create the fair.
The history of CHARM
Contacts between companies and students have a long tradition at Chalmers, as early as 1925 “Praktikbyrån” was started to usher students into work. Exactly 50 years later the careers fair CHARM was born. During the years the fair grew steadily and continued to develop. The first international companies visited in the late nineties and the number of exhibitors kept growing. CHARM has continued to prove its attraction, even during economic slumps, and the future looks bright for one of Scandinavia’s leading career fairs which celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2015!
