Talents and companies matched in the Biotech City


Share this post

Students and companies in the Biotech City met in week 44 for a job event to find the right match for 17 internships and 13 student jobs.

The programme included student jobs for the first and third semester students of the biotechnology and mechanical engineering diploma programme, as well as internships for the fifth semester students of the biotechnology programme, who will spend five months in a final internship.


The atmosphere was intense and thick with excited anticipation during the event, which offered 15 minutes of job and internship speed dating, but both company representatives and students had smiles on their faces. And with good reason. The majority of both internships and student jobs have already been filled, with the remainder in the process.

Overall, there was enthusiasm for both the event format and the students' efforts:

They were all good and talented, and I have found my new student assistant. The matchmaking event is an exciting, good and quick way to do it because we save time and we get the good candidates served."

The same positive picture seemed to emerge for students:

It's been a great experience just trying to go to job interviews. It was really exciting to get to know the content of the internships. I went to five interviews in total and was immediately offered an internship at Novo Nordisk, which I accepted."


The Biotech City is working towards a vision of locally cultivating the talent that the city's industry needs. To achieve this, a close link between the city's businesses and educational institutions is needed, and the matchmaking event is one of many examples of this.

The biotech city's world-class industry and unique collaboration across the city even reaches beyond the country's borders and has, among other things, formed the basis of educational choices for several of Absalon's students:

I chose to study in Kalundborg instead of in my home country, Hungary, because of the opportunities offered by the city's industry and because of the close ties that the programme has with companies. In this way, the Biotech City gives me the best conditions to develop as an engineer."

The matchmaking event is organised in collaboration between Biotech City companies, Absalon University of Applied Sciences and Knowledge Hub Zealand.
