This year, too, from October 21 to October 25,
2019, EFRI Career Week is going to be held at the Faculty of Economics and
Business in Rijeka!
The aim of the event is to inform students
about business opportunities and trends in the business environment and to connect
them with potential employers. For this reason, the Faculty of Economics and
Business in Rijeka gathers economic experts and
numerous businessmen who are going to have the opportunity to introduce themselves
to students through various contents, to transfer their knowledge and
experience and to inform students about the opportunities offered to them
during and after the completion of their studies.
This year's program includes the
representatives of companies and institutions: Kraš, Infobip, Chamber of Trades
and Crafts of the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County, Erste & Steiermärkische
Bank, Mansped, the Croatian National Theater Ivan pl. Zajc in Rijeka, the City
of Rijeka, the Croatian Postal Bank, the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County and many
others. All of them are going to convey their knowledge of current economic
trends to students through numerous lectures.
Within the Business Opportunities Day, educational
workshops are going to be held by the representatives of the above-mentioned
companies for students, in order to help them develop their professional
skills. Some of them are: "Personal branding and selection process at
Infobip", "Creating a career plan by Adecco", "Preparing
for the job market: writing a CV & selection process at CMGC".
Moreover, the representatives of the portal danasradim.hr are going to hold a
workshop on the topic: "Powerpoint and Excel - tips and tricks". The
representatives of Valamar and Erste Bank are going to give lectures on career
development opportunities for students, and the representatives of the Croatian
Employment Service (Rijeka Regional Office) are going to give a lecture on
Active Employment Policy Measures. Furthermore, IntegralEdu is going to present
the Work & Travel USA program and at info desks, students are going to be
informed about business opportunities by Adecco & HUP, Valamar, Hrvatski
telekom, Erste Bank, CES, and others.
Besides, our wish is to inform the students of
the Faculty of Economics and Business in Rijeka about the associations and
organizations gathering volunteers in the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County, and
about the importance of gaining experience through volunteering and the
opportunities offered to them through this kind of work. For this reason,
October 23 is going to be dedicated to them.
On Thursday, October 24, in collaboration with the ALUMNI community, a
panel "Former Students to Present - Your Career Starts Today" is
going to be held. The aim of the panel is to activate students to start thinking
about their employment during their studies and, accordingly, to immediately
engage in various activities and student jobs which can help them develop their
competencies. Furthermore, one of the aims is also to encourage them to be
active and to start their own business, rather than to get a job in a specific
company. Finally, our goal is to point out that the knowledge they acquire through their formal education will be useful
to them later in practice, contrary to the frequent prejudice that they will
not benefit from that knowledge. The panel includes: Miljenko Vaić (co-owner
and director at InCePoSa d.o.o. and sales director at PIK Rijeka d.d.), Nikša
Tomulić (co-owner and director at kompare.hr), Ivana Validžić (head of strategy
and operations at Brigada d.o.o.) and Aleksandra Ignatoski (business analyst at
Aestus d.o.o.). The panel moderator will be prof. Ivana First Komen, Ph.D.
The last day of the Career Week, October 25, is
going to be dedicated to high school students for which the Faculty has come up
with a special program, showing them the opportunities offered to them through
studying at the Faculty of Economics and Business in Rijeka. Furthermore, Ivan
Gržeta, univ. spec. oec., is going to give a lecture "Smart banking for young
