What is a Graduate Programme? (Autumn 2018)

For all 5th-10th semester students and alumni from 2018 within business and engineering at AAU i Aalborg


23.10.2018 kl. 17.00 - 19.00


What is a graduate programme?

At this seminar, career counselors from IDA (The Danish Society of Engineers) and CA (Unemployment fund for business professionals) will give you insight into specific graduate programmes, what to expect and information about the typical recruitment and assessment procedures.

A graduate programme (also called a graduate scheme or trainee programme) is an entry-level training scheme offered by companies to university or college graduates. The programmes usually include a salary, involve rotations and can last between 6 and 24 months. 

The goal of the companies is to get highly competent employees and to shape them into the future leaders, specialists and key figures of the organisation.

The difference between an ordinary entry-level job and a graduate programme is that the employee during a set period is given a greater insight of the organisation’s different departments, mentoring and a successive career curve within the company.
