A Great Success for Minebea Slovakia – The “Profesia days” in Košice 2017

Minebea Slovakia s.r.o. attended the most popular and most visited career event in Slovakia on 28th September, 2017. The “Profesia Days” offer numerous opportunities for jobseekers and HR-specialists. The event is organized by Profesia, the biggest job portal in Slovakia. Every year, thousands of applicants and company representatives visit the job fair. Until this year, it only took place in Bratislava. Last year it attracted 170 exhibitors and about 16.000 visitors. Since there was obviously such a strong demand, 2017 was the first year, the event came to Košice and therefore the eastern region of Slovakia as well.

The “Profesia Days” provided multiple highlights for all interested parties. Candidates were given the opportunity to get to know various companies and also were able to get an immediate feedback from the respective specialists. Top speakers and motivators presented interesting facts and valuable advice for the visitors. Jobseekers were also able to brings their CVs “up to scratch” and to test their language and IT skills with experts from different branches.
