Career day PoliTo

Yesterday, Thursday 19th April, more than 90 companies have met grad students and graduates from the Polytech. Moreover, a CV Corner has been created, in order to help students to improve the writing of their CV

The ability to guarantee a direct collocation in the labour market has always been one of the plus offered by the Turin Polytech (Politecnico di Torino), as testified also by the international ranking Graduate Employability Rankings 2018, published last fall by the prestigious British institute QS. According to the ranking, the Turin Polytech is the first University in the world as regards guaranteeing job offerings to its graduates as it is at the first place in the world for the indicator Graduate Employment Rate, which is calculated as the ratio between the occupation rate of the graduates (94%) and the average of the examined Italian universities (76,2%).

Against this excellent background, the Career Day of the Polytech, which has been awaited by graduates in order to meet the representatives of the world of work, returns today as final appointment of the event Orientati al futuro (Towards the future).

The number of the companies taking part at the event and interested in employing graduates from Turin Polytech or inserting them into stages is increasing (this year the event involved more than 90 companies, among which there were lots of new entries) and that testifies the fact that graduates from Turin Polytech are much sought after by companies’ HR.

During the Career Day, beyond meeting recruiters from both national and international companies, graduates and grad students will have the opportunity to participate in specific company presentations.

The event and the challenge which the Turin Polytech is ready to take has been commented by Alumni and the mentor Carla Chiasserini “ the traditional quality of training provided by our University continues guaranteeing excellent jobs offering to our graduates, as testified by data regarding their entry in the world of work but also by the success of initiatives like our Career Day. The challenge we are facing is to ensure that the profiles of our graduates meet the demands of the companies, above all of the small and medium ones which are the driving force of the area and which need innovation now more than ever. For this reason, we will try to create ad hoc meeting moments between the SME and our graduates and to open an even more direct channel between the Polytech and the companies, for the carrying out of dissertations and stage projects and, finally, the employment of our graduates
