On 5, 6 and 7 May we were at the Virtual Job Fair organised by the University of Cádiz, a meeting and communication point between professionals and companies.
This year, we were part of the more than thirty companies and organisations that participated in the event to give students and new graduates the opportunity to develop personally and professionally through offers of internships and jobs.
Due to the given situation and in compliance with all security measures regarding COVID-19, the event, like the previous one, took place virtually. This is a breakthrough in the conception of such events: The digital age reaches all areas and makes it possible to reach more people with just one click.
The aim of this job fair, organised by the University of Cádiz, is to help students and graduates with their introduction to the world of work. Among other initiatives, the university is also responsible for conducting training interviews as part of the Integral Training Plan for Employment (in Spanish Plan Integral de Formación para el Empleo, or PIFE for short), where students are advised on how to find a job and facilitated in contacting companies that match their professional profile.
Job fairs are a place where supply and qualified demand meet. As one of WATA Factory’s main objectives is to develop quality work in our autonomous community (Andalucía), there is no better way than to support the new generations in the arduous task of finding work. For this reason, we have launched several job offers.
The participation of companies and institutions from all over the province has encouraged hundreds of students and graduates to participate in this 3rd job fair, to carry out the training and information activities and to announce their demands and contents.
The Virtual Job Fair of the University of Cádiz was organised by the General Directorate of Entrepreneurship, Companies and Graduates in collaboration with the Vice-Rectorate of Students and Employment through the Centre for Employment Promotion and Internships.
