Olena Kurilova, HR Manager, Trading House “Ukrservice”:
“We have got our own online store, IT center, and service department, so we need a variety of specialists. Students are interested in the company. At the moment, we have employed two students from the Faculty of Information Technology and Computer Engineering, they have not graduated from the University yet. One of them works in the IT-department, the other one in the department of direct sales. They are Oleh Korolenko and Vladyslav Lehoida. By the way, I worked at the Department of Information Security of VNTU but I have already been working for this company for 10 years. We really need VNTU students and I know there are very good students here. Even just talking with them, you get a lot of pleasure because they have a high professional level.”
“Our company is one of the three leaders of Ukraine in providing high-quality equipment to enterprises. Our company consists of a network of branches, shops (Master and Farmer), a certified service center. We have more than 20 brands of our own imports, which we supply to national networks, to the largest Internet sites of Ukraine, for example, Rozetka. There are official representatives of the world's largest manufacturers — Bosch, Metabo, Makita, Husqvarna and many others. In our team we gather active, purposeful and positive people, ready to improve their knowledge and professional qualities,” told Olena Kurilova.

Bohdan Prymakovskyi, a student of VNTU, told how he got a job with the help of the Career Fair.
“My story began last spring when I actively looked for a job in IT-field. It's quite difficult for a person without experience in the industry. Searching vacancies on DOU and other thematic portals, developing similar test tasks and typical interviews mercilessly quenched ambitions. So, I came to the Career Fair 2016. That's where I found the SteelKiwi company, which gave me a chance to show myself as a software developer. Now I have had almost 2 years of invaluable development experience along with my dream team and a few cool projects.”
Student of VNTU Mariia Polova about her successful experience:
“In 2015, I was among the organizers of the BEST Career Fair at VNTU. I did not look for a job but HR manager Kateryna from Zoom Support offered me to go through basic screening, a small interview in English. And from the first attempt I found my first job!”
