In order to create an effective and impactful connection between the ICT students and their future employers, ATIC organizes annually, starting 2010, the ICT Career Orientation Event. ICT Career Orientation is dedicated to all young people studying ICT specialties within higher or vocational education institutions and aims to motivate and guide them on the opportunities for professional growth in the ICT. The event is supported by USAID and Government of Sweden within the Tekwill Project.
The annual event has become the main communication platform between current and future IT professionals, employers and potential employees. Major IT companies come to share useful insights and information on current career directions, cutting-edge technologies, suggestions for developing a successful career, but also to talk with students about requirements and recommendations for continuous professional growth.
Young people have the opportunity to discuss with potential employers and learn from them what are the opportunities they can take advantage of, career prospects and steps to be taken to increase their chances in the field. The event agenda includes guidance sessions and workshops on mainstream topics and trends. Within the Companies Fair, the participants can learn more information about the local IT companies, internship opportunities, and employment conditions.
A record number of 1450 young people participated in the 10th edition of ICT Career Orientation, held in 2019
