On October 31st, 2019, over 1400 young people interested in the opportunity of a career or growth prospects in the IT field had the opportunity to participate in the ICT Career Orientation, the largest professional orientation event in the field of Information and Communication Technology, at Tekwill.
The event is at its tenth edition and offers young people the opportunity to meet, interact and establish connections with leaders of the Moldovan IT industry, as well as vast opportunities for internships offered by many companies that have shown their willingness to hire students in their first years of studies, combining studies with work activity.
“Such events allow IT companies to discuss with future employees, to know what they are going to do during their studies, to select them and to motivate them to apply for a job. Thus, the companies have the possibility to cover that “gap”, which any company complains that the graduates have in their professional training” said the rector of UTM, prof., Dr. Viorel Bostan.
For the second year in a row, 10 Moldovan employers have proposed to young people to pursue an intensive three-month internship with the possibility of further employment or to combine studies with a part-time job or an internship, as well as many other facilities for full-time employment perspectives.
The students were urged to make the most of the companies’ receptivity, to come up with as many questions as possible and to find out all the answers that could help them increase their chances of getting jobs that would fulfill their expectations.
ICT Career Orientation is organized by the National Association of ICT Companies in partnership with the Technical University of Moldova, with the support of the United States Agency for International Development and of Sweden, within the “Tekwill” Project. The event is organized every year since 2010 and aims to motivate and guide young people towards the knowledge and capitalization of opportunities for employment, development and professional advancement in the field of ICT.
