Turkey’s Presidential Human Resources Office brought young talent at home and abroad and the business world together in fairs by taking an important step. 75,000 young people, 5000 from abroad, participated in twelve career events, four of which were held abroad.
They had an opportunity to get information
The students found an opportunity to get information about job opportunities and working conditions in their departments at the stands opened for the university students; and the companies provided students with internship and employment opportunities. With the project prepared by the Human Resources Office, which was founded after moving into the Presidential System, career fairs aiming to select talented young people in the education process and help their employment were held.
12 fairs were held
In the career fairs, events like information sessions, interviews and workshops were organized and, in this way, each young person had an opportunity to experience a transparent, competence and merit-based recruitment process.
The Human Resources Office organized career fairs at home and abroad with the intent of providing equality of opportunity to university students and graduates in the matter of employment, letting young people discover their talents without considering university names, supporting employment of qualified young people in both the public and private sectors, increasing the employer’s brand value of the state institutions and organizations with the slogan “Talent is Everywhere”. Within the scope of the project carried out under the auspices of Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, 12 fairs were held, 8 at home and 4 abroad.
More than 1000 companies
87 universities from Turkey participated in the fairs organized in Erzurum, Trabzon, İzmir, Diyarbakır, Antalya, Konya, Gaziantep and Mersin. More than 70,000 students and graduates came together with 1,315 companies in total, 351 of which were public institutions. Overseas career fairs that began in Köln, Germany were also held in London, in the UK; Johannesburg, South Africa and Taskent, Uzbekistan. 69 companies which are leaders in their industries, 17 of which are public companies, came together with more than 5000 Turkish and foreign talent.
Exchange of experience
In career fairs, events like information sessions, interviews and workshops were organized and, in this way, each young person had an opportunity to experience a transparent, competence and merit-based recruitment process. While the vocational counselors were offering registry and consulting services, workshops were carried out with respect to CV writing, interviews and looking for a job.
The number of fairs is going to increase
At these fairs, some of the companies took the CVs of students for their internship and employment opportunities. In this manner, companies found an opportunity to discover talented and successful students in the educational system and to support them in the way of entering the sector. The capacity of the fairs is aimed to expand next year and studies have begun in this direction. It is also an aim to increase the number of fairs the following year.
