Employer Insight Talks

Attendees took their seats in the theatre space for insights talks from two of the exhibiting employers. Beginning with a welcome from STEM Women, the audience then heard a fascinating talk from Marjan Beijer de Looze from ofi who provided the audience with a personal insight into her career journey. Marjan focussed on the importance of culture and values, describing how she held a senior position early in her career. She also spoke about how she grew her professional networks and how this has supported her though challenges.

Marjan was followed by Maryan Aliee from ASML, who spoke about her experiences of working and studying in different countries, and the skills that she developed in order to thrive. Maryan also highlighted the internship opportunities on offer at ASML.

STEM Graduate Careers Exhibition and Networking

Throughout the day, attendees were able to visit all of the employers at their company stand. The networking space was full of exciting conversation, with attendees making new connections, chatting to recruiters, discovering career opportunities, and making the most of this fantastic networking experience!
