The Universitat de València's Employment and Entrepreneurship Forum came to the Faculty of Philology, Translation and Communication on 31st March, in a day that hosted round tables, workshops and fifteen stands of companies and organisations from the education, research, publishing and communication sectors.

Aimed at the Faculty of Philology, Translation and Communication's degree's and master's degrees students, as well as its graduates, the Forum offered different advantages to those who register.

The meeting was scheduled to begin at 9:30 a.m., in the Faculty's assembly hall, with the institutional opening and the inaugural conference given by Paloma Chen, a freelance worker specialising in intercultural issues, which was presented by the Vice-Dean and Head of Communication and Participation at the Faculty, Dolors Palau.
