The Careers Service hosts Industry Weeks for students and graduates, which are regular meetings with representatives of selected industries. These events are designed to familiarize students and graduates with the specifics of working in a given place. We welcome experts and professionals who would like to talk about the ups and downs of their profession, their duties and skills needed to fill a specific position. Presentations will include HR departments providing valuable guidance on the recruitment process in their companies and explain how to prepare well for a job interview. Additionally, they will also discuss the profile and organizational culture of the company/institution and offer openings for internships, jobs and volunteer positions. Students can also hear how to build their career path in a given place.
