Career Fair to Begin Soon
The Career Development and Placement Center (CDPC) is currently planning the fifth annual Career Fair, which will take place on March 28. In 1999 Bilkent University, with the help of CDPC, organized the first career fair held in Ankara.
This year, students will again have the opportunity to meet with representatives of private and governmental institutions from Turkey and throughout the world. Meeting representatives, gathering information about companies, and presenting their CVs will all be beneficial to the students for future internship and full time career positions.
During Career Days which follows in March, April and May, CDPC will schedule individual interviews for interested students with various companies from the public and private sector. It is important to begin preparing now for the Career Fair and the interviews that will occur during Career Days. Contact the CDPC at ext. 1911, or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information about the Career Fair and for assistance with CV preparation. Watch for further career information as the semester proceeds.
The CDPC, Kariyer Kulübü, Management and Economics Club, Operational Research Club and Radio Bilkent will assist in organizing the activities.
All students who care about their future careers must prepare themselves for tough employment competition after graduation, and should be aware of their own and their employers expectations. We, as a Career Club, believe that Career Days followed by the Career Fair provide much needed help for our future. One-to-one interaction with pioneer companies will provide needed answers to many hard questions. We hope to see everyone participate and make use of this great opportunity.
President of Career Club
As Bilkenters, we should realize the broad opportunities our university offers us. One of the most important activities in this respect is Career Days.
As an Operational Research Club, we are supporting and working for a better future career for our members and fellow students. My advice to every single person is to take advantage of this opportunity, and to begin the journey along their career path starting with this first, important step.
