This is an evening where we invite students and employees from the blue sector to an afternoon of meet and greet. We have motivational lectures, mingling and speed-dating – where students get 10 minutes each with different employees from the business world.
An evening of networking and industry insight
The evening kicked off with a cluster introduction, giving the students insight to the different areas of expertise and also what a cluster actually do. The introduction was followed by a presentations by Vidar Aarhus from Bergen County, who gave an inspiring presentation about “Bergen – The ocean city”. We also had different employees from the industry share their journey towards their current position in the company they work in, as well as a company presentation.
Kristian Nordlie, earlier seafood trainee, from Wsense gave an inspiring presentation, sharing his journey and how he ended up in the seafood industry as an engineer.
Speed-dating for future opportunities
The most exciting part of the program was speed-dating, which gave the students an opportunity to network with employees and experts from the blue sector. Many students showed interest in the seafood industry and our seafood trainee program.
