The Kontaktparty (KP) is the largest academic IT-recruiting event in Switzerland. It takes place once a year at ETH Zurich, one of Europe's most known tech universities. The event is organized by the VIS ("Verein der Informatik Studierenden an der ETH Zürich") and based on voluntary work. All earnings go to the association.
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 startup companies. You can find more information about startups@KP here.
For every Kontaktparty we 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.
