Kontaktparty Committee


Who? What? Why?

We are currently a team of ten dedicated Computer Science students at ETH Zurich ranging from second year Bachelor to Master's students.

The goal of the Kontaktparty is to establish the first contact between Computer Science students/graduates (mainly from ETH) and potential employers in a relaxed atmosphere. Companies can take the opportunity to introduce themselves to Computer Science students and get to know students as a foundation to fill job positions.

Additionally, we organize complementary events (side-events) such as CV-checks and interview training shortly before the Kontaktparty takes place. Another event is startups@KP, a special opportunity for startups.

Every Kontaktparty we also publish a fair guide with portraits from all participating companies which can be viewed as a "Who-is-Who"-List of the Swiss IT industry.
