Join this afternoon event and hear which PhD profiles Vestas is interested in, not least the PhD competencies the company values.

Vestas employs PhDs from both the science area and from economy, finance and communication, so this event is for all PhDs that find Vestas interesting.

We have invited Senior HR Business Partner Rikke Vaaben and two PhD alumni from Aarhus University. Rikke Vaaben will shed light on the recruitment process, which PhD profiles they typically hire and, on a more general note, the company overall. AU alumni Anne Lund Christophersen and Hans Harhoff Andersen, with PhDs in respectively mathematics and physics, will talk about their jobs as well as job tasks and which PhD competencies they use.
