On December 8 and 9, a two-day event was held at the Geotechnical Faculty of University of Zagreb, which gathered 170 participants live and via the Zoom online platform. As part of the Career Day, renowned companies operating in the field of environmental engineering were introduced to the students, and students were provided with “first-hand” information about the possibilities of professional practice during their studies, as well as later employment.
On Friday, December 9, 2022, graduated students were introduced to the students and recounted their experiences on the labor market. As part of the Career Day activities, a career counseling workshop was held, through which students were presented with ways to look for a job, creating resumes and applications, and how to prepare for an interview with an employer. Also, on the second day of the 4th career day, the following associations were presented to the students: Association of Geotechnical Faculty Graduates (AMAC-GFV), Croatian Society for Environmental Engineering (HDIO) and Croatian Society of Geotechnical Engineers (HDIG).
This year, in addition to the Career Day, a Career Evening was held on December 8, 2022. The Career Evening gathered about a hundred graduated students from almost all generations of graduates – from geotechnicians who entered the faculty back in 1985 to the youngest engineers who completed their undergraduate studies of Environmental Engineering at the Geotechnical Faculty this year. All present were delighted with this event because they had the opportunity to socialize with colleagues they had not seen for a long time, to remember their student days and events and to exchange information and experiences.
