As a company based in Hamburg, uptain has a special relationship with the city of Flensburg: three of our team members studied in the city on the Fjord. And because we are convinced of our three Flensburg team members, we set off north twice. We were exhibitor at the Campus Career Day and received a guest lectureship at the European University of Flensburg (EUF).
Campus Career Day
The eighth EUF Campus Career Day took place on 13 November 2019 under the motto “Short way from the lecture hall to the job”. A total of 30 companies from the region exchanged information about internships, career opportunities and working student jobs with around 500 students at the job fair. The Campus Career Day is an attractive opportunity for students in the region to network and exchange ideas with companies. Of course, we didn’t miss this opportunity.
In a presentation in the Audimax, one of our founders, Harald Neuner, gave a 15-minute talk on outdated standard applications as well as application phrases and how to do it better. What we noticed particularly positively in the numerous conversations was that there is a growing interest in online topics in general and marketing technologies in particular. We are equally pleased that the uptain jute bag is increasingly appearing on the streets of Flensburg and Hamburg.
Guest Lecture: Entrepreneurship
On December 2nd 2019, we received a guest lecture for the International Management course of study with a focus on Entrepreneurship & Small Business Management. Students of this field are primarily interested in innovative start-ups with their choice of specialisation.
As a Tech Startup we were able to provide first-hand information to the prospective founders: In the context of a seminar Julian Craemer, also one of our founders, lectured about the development, milestones and financing from uptain and answered the following questions. Here, too, we were pleased about the remarkably high level of interest in start-ups and marketing technologies.
We know very well that many young talents are also keen to change the world of e-commerce outside of Flensburg. Whether from Flensburg, Munich or the North Pole, it’s worth visiting our career site.
