The Employer Branding specialist Universum annually organizes the Student of the Year competition together with some of Sweden's leading companies. The companies' common goal is to attract students with that little extra.
For the fourth consecutive year, SEB is looking for a student in the category ‘Tech Talent of the Year’.
“The purpose of the competition ‘Tech Talent of the Year’ is to reach out to IT students and showcase career opportunities within IT at SEB and to attract young tech talents who can contribute with new insights and ideas,” says Malin Brant-Lundin, Head of Employer Branding.
