Vitalii Balitskyi, a student of the Faculty of Information Technology and Computer Engineering was involved in Berlin career fair due to the cooperation of the student organizations BEST and Bonding
I had the happy opportunity to participate and assist in holding one of the largest career fairs in Berlin. The host organization Bonding is very similar in its structure and activities to BEST (Board of European Students of Technology) and is an independent, non-political and non-profit student organization of the technical universities in Germany that aims to educate students of Engineering Sciences and to promote their further employment. This aim is mainly realized in career fairs that students hold in every city where there is a branch of the organization every year. They also organize visits to companies, companies presentation, roundtable discussions with companies and a variety of trainings aimed at the development of professional skills, and much more. All these activities are free for participating students. The main source of funding is a great number of companies that are interested in finding skilled workers.
Eighty-three companies attended the career fair in the Berlin Technical University. The event was organized by 38 members of Bonding, which came from all 12 local branches of Germany, and by 5co-organizers of BEST for additional assistance and exchange of experience.
I was impressed with the coherence and seriousness of colleagues to this mega-event. Students showed a level of true professionals in the event organizing.
Inspired by the work and socializing with people of such a level I hope to use this experience and help improve the Career Fair, which is annually organized by BEST in VNTU.
