Today, our work is constructed so as to hear the views of employers and labor market requirements, which apply to the graduates. I encourage students to actively participate in this event.”

This is why our company has conducted several workshops that were aimed to prepare students for future professional life. Close cooperation allows to employ university graduates, and companies – to find new productive and efficient employees.”
