Students and graduates with IT skills are highly demanded by a growing number of companies. At the Department of Computer Science, University of Copenhagen, a tradition has been established to invite  companies working with IT and being members of DIKU Business Club as well as students from Computer Science and other studies involving programming actitivities to meet and talk career plans or project contracts - ranging from full time jobs for graduates over student and part time jobs to internships, projects and other ways of collaboration

This year showed a record breaking number of participants both on part of companies (45) and students (300) - and socalled company daters, who had registered for 1-1 talks - 6 x 10 minutes during one hour. Even if hosted by Computer Science, the fair is open to participants from other studies, as long as they have programming experience and skills.

A good tradition is to round up the fair with a nice cup of beer and finger food.
