What Does Career Days Offer Me?
As you are probably aware, on March 8 Career Days will start. It will be a fascinating opportunity for every student especially seniors who are interested in making plans for their professional lives. Career days will be held between March 8 and May 15. As in past Career Days, we are sure many of you will definitely take advantage of this opportunity and may become part of the worlds leading companies like PG, Pricewaterhousecoopers, Unilever, Ernst & Young
Here are a few comments from our alumni who got the chance to work at those companies via opportunities gained from previous career days.
Başak Aktürk, MAN graduate working at Unilever; I strongly advise every Bilkent student to participate in the Bilkent Career Days since you get the chance to communicate face to face with the managers or other authorities of the companies and you are encouraged to ask pertinent questions. Dont miss this opportunity!
Aktan Kurtulmuş, MAN graduate, working in Ernst & Young; Career days brings to you the managers of leading companies. If I had applied to those companies on my own, all the information that I would have received would have come from their Human Resource Center or it might have taken me a long time to talk with the managers, whereas; with the help of Career Days, you meet the managers and communicate with them on an individual level.
