Young people flock to FIMA’s stand at KTU’s Career Days 2015

Back to News

The largest career contacts fair in the Baltic states – Career Days 2015 hosted by Kaunas University of Technology (KTU) – took place at the end of February. FIMA has traditionally been one of the main participants. This year, students were again keen to find out what work FIMA is doing and the company’s interactive stand attracted a large number of young people interested in discovering what career opportunities the firm offers.

This was the 11th time in succession that KTU has hosted Career Days. The event, held at Žalgiris Arena, was the largest one to date, attracting 130 businesses and thousands of students, graduates and pupils.

FIMA’s show stand was equipped with special terminals made to order which displayed its slogan for 2015, “Bring your energy to FIMA!”, inviting young people to play a game to find out which part of the company would be the best place for them as employees. After a student placed their hand on a special surface, the terminal scanned it to display an assessment of their suitability to be a FIMA team member including motivation, a modern attitude and a thirst for knowledge. Based on the individual results, the terminal’s application then selected the sector within FIMA most suitable for that particular student.

FIMA’s professionals helped to plan each student’s career in an entertaining and dynamic environment, taking particular note of a few exceptional potential employees.

This year, FIMA’s stand proved even more popular among youngsters. Students were interested in everything from FIMA’s activities and projects to employment and practice opportunities. Those who were worried about their lack of experience were reassured by FIMA’s staff that professionalism develops gradually and that drive and hard work are what matters to start with.

Career Days aims to provide the opportunity for young people planning their careers to have face-to-face contact with potential employers and to get a closer look at what they do as well as for employers to meet promising potential candidates.
