We remember last year's Job Fair which was our first time there. A year went by so fast and we were already making plans and preparing everything for our second round of meeting students and our new potential employees. We planned and wanted to present Amphinicy even better because we believe we have so much to offer to those who are in search of a great employer, interesting projects and a good working atmosphere.
Seems like discussions about finding qualified employees in IT have increased from last year. Even though IT companies are still doing good compared to other industries on the market, the challenge in finding qualified employees is still present.
We are proud to be one of those employers who are still in constant search and manage to find great people for our projects but it also takes constant effort to find them.
Job Fair is a place with high potential for those who are interested to ask questions and get to know potential employers while it is also a perfect place for employers to meet soon-to-graduate and freshly graduated students as well as those who recognized Job Fair as a hub for the next step in their career.
Job Fair 2017, the largest student job fair in Croatia, was held on 17th and 18th of May at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing, University of Zagreb. It hosted 93 companies of which 38 held presentations for more than 2000 visitors. Once again it was a place that joined students and companies in the field of electronics, information technology and computing.
Our main goal was to get our company's name out there, encourage students to ask questions and let them know that there is a software company in Croatia that works in satellite industry having its offices in Zagreb as well as in Luxembourg.
We had our booth prepared with our company profile brochure, big TV which played our promo video and small goodies - notepads, pens, bags, sunglasses, yo-yos and candy. We also prepared a little prize game in which students had to solve a mystery, write down the answer and come to our booth the next day to check if they won one of our three prizes. A lot of students decided to participate so we were very pleased with the response.
On the second day, we held a short presentation in the Grey Hall. Our two Project Managers – Ivana and Nikica along with Mia, our HR Manager, introduced Amphinicy, what we do, how we do it and what are the best ways for those who are interested to apply for our job opportunities as well as summer internship program in which we are happy to be a part of for the second year in a row. Last summer internship went very well and we are proud to say we met some great young people who decided to continue their career in Amphinicy.
It has been a pleasure to be a part of such an event.
Many thanks to everyone who worked on the organization of Job Fair. We will definitely apply to participate next year!
