  • The Amsterdam Career Days (ACD) is the largest career event in Amsterdam. The ACD is organized by students for students. Its aim is to guide students in their choices at the beginning of their careers. Through various business presentations, case studies, training, lunches, dinners and other informal activities, you will be able to find out more about a wide range of multinationals and other companies!

  • The ACD 2022 will take place offline this year in the Hilton in Amsterdam! Since the government allows events with a maximum capacity of 1250 people with an end time of 22:00, we can continue with our event in an offline environment. We will of course take appropriate measures to ensure the health and safety for everyone involved by complying to the governmental guidelines. These measures consist of:

    1. Showing a valid QR code at the entrance of the Hilton.
    2. Wearing face masks according to the applicable guidelines of the RIVM (Dutch Public Health Services).
    3. Keeping 1.5 m away as much as possible.
    4. Placing sufficient disinfection products to disinfect your hands.

    Disclaimer: if there will be changes in the weeks prior to the event regarding the possibility to host an offline event, we will come up with an appropriate alternative to still host the event. This alternative will be in line with the guidelines of the RIVM.
