You as a member of the student union influence what we do and what we should focus on to make your time here at the university as good as possible. You can make your voice heard or make requests throughout the financial year, but the easiest way to influence is by attending our 4 member meetings, 2 per semester. If this interests you, you will find lots of information in our document archive, click here to get there (Swedish link).

The student union's presidium includes three full - time paid employees. These are elected by the members and then sit on their position of trust for one financial year.

Together with the union board, they must cover the daily operation of the student union.

The Labor Market Day is a business fair that was founded in 2015 at Halmstad University. The idea behind the fair is to connect students with the business community both locally and nationally. The fair is an excellent opportunity for companies to recruit students who are on their way into working life. This opens up opportunities for students who are looking for a job, an internship or a collaboration for a C-thesis. We also have the opportunity for contact interviews where companies can offer selected students to go on a short job interview. The contact talks were introduced last year during the fair and were much appreciated.
