Prague, March 26 - This year's Job Fair at the Faculty of Forestry and Wood Sciences was special. Job Fair was connected together with Future Environmentalists project so a number of foreign employers have come to present job possibilities.
The buildings were filled with interesting job offers during the last week of February. In addition to traditional domestic exhibitors a number of foreign exhibitors arrived. “We connected this year's Job Fair with the Future Environmentalists project,” explained project manager Martin Čabrada. The project focuses on innovation in university education through partnerships between the private sector, non-governmental organizations, universities and other stakeholders to bridge the gap between theory and practice. A unique on-line database of study materials and other interactive tools is being created for students of three European universities from the Czech Republic, Bulgaria and Greece with a focus on nature conservation. The project is funded under the European Union's “Erasmus +” program under KA2 strategic partnerships. The Job Fair was enriched by the Association of Parks in Bulgaria, the Bulgarian Biodiversity Foundation, The University of Forestry in Sofia, the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and the Hunting Federation of Macedonia and Thrace and many others. “The purpose of the event was to enable students to meet representatives of leading public or private employers, non-governmental organizations and European universities in the field of forestry and nature conservation in order to increase their job chances in mentioned fields,” said project expert Jan Kašpar. In addition to the above-mentioned foreign employers, companies and organizations from the Czech Republic traditionally took part in the Job Fair. “Although I will study at the Faculty of Forestry and Wood Sciences for a few more years, it is great to see what opportunities I have in my field abroad. I now consider that as soon as I successfully complete my studies, I will start working for one of the companies presented in this Job Fair,” said Marek Mejstřík, student of the Faculty of Forestry and Wood Sciences.
