The Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) is holding Forempleo, the main university job fair in the Community of Madrid, on the 4th and 5th of October at its Leganés campus. Admission is free for students and graduates from any university and prior registration isn’t required.

La UC3M celebra Forempleo 2023

A total of 147 companies will be present at this twenty-eighth edition of Forempleo, which is a record-breaking turnout for the UC3M First Job Fair (a 9% increase compared to last year). In this way, it has established itself as the largest and longest-running employment and internship event for university students in the Community of Madrid.

This year's edition also has the largest number of activities proposed for students to date. In total, 41 meetings with top-level companies will be on offer, where university students will be able to learn about the profiles they are looking for and the professional future they offer, and apply for selection tests. 6 workshops will also be held to learn how to prepare a CV, pass a selection interview, get the most out of your LinkedIn profile, or present yourself in 2 minutes, among others. Both activities require prior registration through the website.

Students and graduates will be able to come into direct contact with human resources managers of large companies from a wide range of sectors and follow the talks, meetings and presentations aimed at finding employment. To facilitate submitting CVs to companies and avoid the use of paper, students will be able to register them directly on the website and submit them using a QR code.

In this 2023 edition, conferences and workshops are returning to advise university students on issues related to their professional future. In addition, one of the most in-demand activities from previous years is returning, the “Bridge to employment”, where university students have a personal interview with a guidance technician, with whom they can carry out a digital audit of their CV, review it and have a professional photo taken. Full information on the activities is available at

137 companies participated in last year's edition and there were more than 4,000 in-person visitors. Of the visitors received, 67% of the attendees were looking for internships/end-of-degree projects and 33% were directly seeking work. The website registered 116,230 visits.

UC3M maintains a high employability rate for its students. According to the latest available study (Class of 2020), 91.1% of graduates were working within 2 years of graduating. It has also obtained very good results in international employability rankings such as those carried out by QS and THE. Contributing to this is its ability to attract talent, the quality of its educational offer and the support for its students’ employability developed by the “UC3M Guidance & Employment” service, managed by the Universidad Carlos III Foundation, and which has the collaboration of over 4,000 companies for internships and the implementation of numerous other employability support initiatives.

This year the fair has special sponsorship from ACCENTURE, BBVA, Deloitte, EY and KPMG.
