The first talk in the “Kamu Sohbetleri” (Public Sector Talks) series, organized by the Faculty of Economics, Administrative and Social Sciences, was held on October 24. The guest speakers were four FEASS graduates currently working in the public sector: Adem Yazıcı (POLS ’00, Ministry of Customs and Trade), Uğur Kaydan (ECON ’07, Information and Communication Technologies Authority), Çağatay Telli (ECON ’00, Ministry of Development) and Hüsnü Ada (IR ’01, Ministry of the Economy).
The session began with the guests explaining why they had chosen to work in the public sector. They then highlighted the opportunities and advantages that the public sector offers. The speakers also shared their knowledge regarding the public sector exam process. They noted that Bilkent graduates come to the exam with an advantage, especially in terms of the critical thinking skills they have acquired at Bilkent.
The FEASS “Kamu Sohbetleri” series brings together FEASS graduates who are working in the public sector and current FEASS students, in order to facilitate their interaction. The objective is to help FEASS students learn more about the public sector at a time when they are making decisions about their future career paths.
