About National Econometricians Day
The National Econometricians Day (in Dutch: Landelijke Econometristendag, abbreviated as LED) is the largest annual recruitment event for students in the fields of econometrics, operations research and actuarial sciences in the Netherlands. On this day, almost 800 students get the opportunity to orientate themselves on their future careers and get in contact with their future employers. Nowadays econometricians play an important role in almost all companies. This is reflected in the diversity of the 68 different companies present during the LED 2019, such as finance, actuarial sciences, logistics, and consultancy. The theme of the LED 2019 is “Connecting the Dots”, which captures the unique characteristics of the LED and the important role it has in connecting students with companies.
