UNYP CAREER WEEK - a path to your career!

University of New York in Prague is organizing our annual Career Week on the 3rd – 6th April 2017. UNYP Career Week contains many events to help our bachelors and even masters students students prepare for their career after finishing their university program or even to find internships during their studies. Career week at UNYP is also open to Alumni on both sides of the table, as it could be a great opportunity for them to return and present their companies or even get in touch with someone that could lead to a dream job. This year more than 20 Czech and international companies will take part in the events.

UNYP places a strong value on the employability of its graduates. Organizing events and suporting our students and alumni in their career and other related activities to succeed on the job market is one of our key goals.

Last year’s Career Days included several workshops and presentations of companies as well as a two day Career Fair, where 18 companies from various fields participated by setting up stands to speak with students about potential career and internship opportunities. The fair is based on personal contact between students and company recruitment representatives. Students and graduates have the opportunity to meet with companies and gain more information about the employers and make that most important first impression.

This year’s Career Week is even bigger than last year’s! More than 25 Czech and international companies are participating in Career Fair, as well as giving presentations, workshops and seminars for students such as Amazon, Unilever, ExxonMobile, McKinsey & Company, Socialbakers and more.

The purpose of the workshops and seminars this year is to support and guide students entering the job market. They also help students with writing and improving cover letters and CVs, and provide advice on how to apply for job offers or internships or how to prepare for the interviews.

This year will be truly exceptional and we hope that you will take the time to stop by and join us if you are a student, alumni or event friend to UNYP!
