Excelerate matching process step 1: Create student profile

Create student profile

Sign up and fill out your student profile. Your profile will be displayed next to the thesis topic you upload.

Your student profile is anonymous to avoid biases towards age, gender and ethnicity. You are solely chosen based on your personality, compentencies, and thesis topic.

Invite your co-students to Excelerate and add them to your thesis topic. Add all student members, so companies can see all student profiles they will eventually engage with.

Excelerate matching process step 2: List your thesis topic

List thesis topic

To create your thesis topic, you need to fill out four steps: Content, Value, Motivation, and Why Us.

The more effort you put into filling out your thesis topic, the better the chances are of finding a thesis collaboration match. Being too specific and narrow can limit you to a small group of companies. Being too broad and vague might not attract the right companies.

Why you should collaborate with a company on your thesis

Having a limited network can easily be a limitation for you in the transition to a full-time dream job when you finish your studies. And as a student, your network and connection to the business world is often times limited.

There can be many reasons for your narrow experience and network within your specific field. Perhaps you have not prioritized working a job relevant to your studies or maybe just not have had the opportunity.

Your lack of professional network makes it difficult for you to get in touch with the right companies and people – whether that be in the hopes of landing a thesis collaboration or perhaps a future dream job. This is exactly why you should kickstart your career by collaborating with an interesting thesis company when writing your Bachelor or Master thesis!

At Excelerate, you can forget all about the problem of a limited professional network. Our platform helps you get in touch with interesting companies within your field of study – completely free of charge.

Student writing their thesis project

Writing your thesis project with a company kickstarts your career

Thesis collaboration between a student and a company

The best way you can get access to the right companies and business world as a student is by building a bridge already before you finish your studies. A great way to do so is by writing your thesis project with a relevant company. A company you could imagine yourself working after you graduate. At Excelerate we make this possible.

A more fluid transition from student to full-time work in company – through a student thesis project collaboration – increases the chances of you landing your dream job just after graduation. Also, this will decrease the chances that you end up working in a role you are overqualified for or do not feel comfortable with.

On the Excelerate platform you get to collaborate with a company interested in the same thesis topic as you. You will be working closely together with the company for the months you are writing your thesis. Here you can really get to know the company and the people in it, which gives you exciting career opportunities within the company when your collaboration ends. This also increases the chances of you landing a job right after you graduate.

In other words, by engaging with a company through a thesis collaboration, you already have a foot in the door in the business world and a larger professional network. Who knows – maybe your dream job will end up being in the thesis collaboration company?

A company thesis collaboration increases your chances of employment

A study by Dansk Industri shows that the majority of companies in Denmark hire graduates in a full-time position if the company has previously collaborated with the student during their studies. A collaboration can be anything from a student job in the company to a thesis collaboration.

In other words, this means that you, as a soon-to-be graduate, significantly increase your chances of being employed in a full-time position within a company if you already have a relationship with that company during your time as a student.

The study also shows that of all full-time employments of graduates in Denmark, a fifth of these employments are the result of a thesis collaboration. The numbers talk for themselves. Collaborating with companies during your studies that you wish to work for significantly increases your chances of landing a job in the organization.

Sign up for Excelerate for FREE and kickstart your career even before you become a graduate. Who knows, maybe your thesis topic and collaboration will help you land your dream job?
