The VIS Kontaktparty is the largest academic IT job fair in Switzerland and primarily addresses students and graduates from the ETH Department of Computer Science. The event takes place yearly during the Spring semester and is organized by the Kontaktparty Committee (KPK) of the VIS. The mission of the Kontaktparty is to enable students and company representatives to connect and get to know each other in a casual way.
The next Kontaktparty takes place on Saturday, 11th of March 2023 from 11:00 to 17:00.
The Kontaktparty is an event for all students, both from BSc. and MSc. (or even alumni!), so do not hesitate to join the event. Students from all universities and departements are welcome, but the focus lies primarily on computer science students. Even at the very beginning of your career, you will certainly profit from joining the event -- it is never too early to start your professional network!
