“Career in the energy industry” project initiated by SIER Bucharest Youth reached the eighth edition, marking in Constanța another success bringing together the companies, young students and graduates, who are at the beginning of the road. They had the opportunity to meet and interact with companies active in the energy field.
In the first day, young people from Dobrogea attended at five presentations of companies interested in presenting career and development opportunities in the energy field. Presentations by Rompetrol, Nuclearelectrica and Transelectrica – Gold Partners, Celco – Silver Partner and Wind Technicians – Bronze Partner followed by over 90 young students or graduates.
In the second part of the day, the 92 participants of the event followed the speeches of the representatives of the companies that set out to present the career and development opportunities in the energy field. The 5 participating companies have achieved a diverse range of specializations in which young people can follow internship and workplace programs.
Day ended with the “Refinery Fundamentals & Economics” workshop supported by Rompetrol. “Sorin Cioca, Director of Planning and Performance at Rompetrol – KMG International has showed that engineering and economics are not impossible when you do them with pleasure”, says Mircea Bițoiu, president of SIER București Tineret.
Event ended on November 9, on Saturday, when 30 young people left for the two technical visits. One of the visits was to Celco, the most innovative company in the field of building materials from Romania. The young people enjoyed the presence of the specialists, but also of the small experiments they saw. The second technical visit was to the Isaccea Electric Station, where the professionals from Transelectrica were available to young people eager to know the energy field. The fact that the young people had the opportunity to see the only electrical station in Romania that operated with the voltage level of 750kV represents for them an advantage in understanding the complexity of this field.
“We want the event to be the instrument through which the industrial environment is closer to the academic environment, and the transition of young people from students to employees is made in the most enjoyable way by both parties,” says Mircea Bițoiu. “The performance in the field is dictated by the existence of such events that facilitate the exchange of experience and connect together both the companies in the field and the future specialists.”
The next edition of the event: “Conference: Career in the energy industry 2020” will take place on March 9-14, 2020, at the Polytechnic University Library in Bucharest.
