Where should I look for accommodation?
We advise you to choose in Troia because it's walking distance from the venues and... well, everything!

We will be providing updates regarding accommodation soon on our website.

It includes full access to the venues for 2 recruiters. During the Recruitment days, the package covers a booth set up for your company, with Wi-Fi access and an energy boost area. The Fee also includes the trips from and to the airport for both recruiters (car + catamaran).
Where and how does the candidate's selection process work?
The selection process of candidates is held on the THU website before the event. Once you add the offers online, the candidates apply during a specific period, and you can review and accept the ones you want to interview. Finally, selected candidates can choose an available slot from the company's schedule.
What's the schedule and duration of the interviews?
The recruitment schedule starts at 9 am and finishes at 6 pm. The slot lasts a max of 20 minutes, followed by a 5-minute break before the next session. You can book a total of 34 interviews in the 2 recruitment days - max 17 per day.

Happy dance! In that case you'll be able to schedule a slot for each application you’ve been approved for. Don’t miss the deadline to book!
Why can't I book my approved applications?
If you're not able to book, it's either because Recruiters and Mentors are still defining their availability and the slots are not yet visible to you, or because the available slots collide with your own schedule. Please contact the Tribe Care bears for support.
Will Recruiters and Mentors open up slots for everyone?
