This year's Career Education Day took place on April 5th in the Westin hotel in Zagreb. Close to 500 students had an amazing opportunity to meet with the representatives of 30 companies and listen to their presentations and discussions on hot topics from the industry.
Alongside the direct communication with the companies' representatives, students were interested in the speed networking with potential employers and attended 3 panel discussions:
Panel Discussion 1: How to recognize a prospective employer?
Moderator: Bojan Poljičak, Adecco
Panel Discussion 2: How is IoT influencing our future?
Moderator: dr.sc Branko Mihaljević, RIT Croatia professor
Panel Discussion 3: Corporate Job vs Entrepreneurship
Moderator: Ivo Špigel, Perpetuum mobile
It is no news that a lot of alumni come to our CED events to share their experience with students and look for potential employees. However, this year, one of our recent graduates, Filip Macukić (RIT Croatia, Class of 2016) participated in the event as both the panelist and the employer looking for students for co-op in his digital agency Enfluar. This is what he said about it: „When I was a student, the CED event was a great opportunity for me to meet future employers; it helped me boost my self-confidence, which later proved to be crucial in interviews. As employers, we see amazing opportunity to meet all sorts of talent. RIT has students that are interested in various types of fields, such as: digital marketing, sales, finance and IT and we have had new members in Enfluar that came from both IB and IT majors. So, to all students of RIT Croatia, when it comes to the Career Education Day, prepare for events, do research about people attending the events and prepare questions of their interest for them. Get out of your comfort zone regarding networking because this is a great way to start preparing for your career during your studies!"
Senior capstone project is the crown of education at RIT Croatia for graduating students of the Hospitality and Tourism Management program. Senior year students choose topics based on their own interests, which gives them the opportunity to tackle anything they find interesting and worth exploring. Creating a successful senior capstone project is a complex process which requires a lot of maturing along the way, a lot of problem solving, researching and, above all, a good and firm connection with the faculty member mentoring the whole process.
