Second year a row, a special student job fair with focus on international students called “Work in Estonia” was carried out in Tallinn University of Technology campus on 19th of November. The event, organized by Study in Estonia, attracted over 150 current international students currently studying in Estonia in different universities and various respected Estonian companies.
The event was divided into three parts, each one with very different focus and aim. The open lecture of the “Work in Estonia” job day focused on two main issues – why and how to work in Estonia. It was delivered by representative from Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications, Miss Piret Potisepp.
The second part of the event was formed of parallel info sessions like “Work in Estonia” (case studies from companies and organizational behaviour in Estonia), “Become an entrepreneur in Estonia (case studies from companies and guides how to start with your business) and “Internship and international students” (career-and counselling office services, case studies for AIESEC interns, welcoming programme implemented by Ministry of Interior and organizational culture in Estonia).
Third and most important part was the job fair, which was aimed to offer direct contact between employers and students. This year the participant list on employers side included companies and organizations like Swedbank, TransferWise, Kühne+Nagel, Thorgate, Transcome Eesti, Trafotek, Agile Works and Estonian Unemployment Fund.
During the event students could also showcase the TUT`s 3D printer and take part of the tour to Innovation and Business Center Mektory located in TUT campus.
