Career Day and Alumni Expo at the Rákóczi College

Career Day and Alumni Expo were held at the Ferenc Rákóczi II Transcarpathian Hungarian College on 28 April.

The aim of the event was to facilitate job search and develop the culture of job placement with interesting labour market presentations.

István Csernicskó, Rector of the Rákóczi College, welcomed the participants.

“When I think that this academic year our institution has almost 1300 students, and when I think that hundreds of students have graduated from our college in recent years, I feel proud. I am proud that in this academic year there are about 600 former students working in almost 150 public educational institutions in Transcarpathia. For me, this shows that it makes sense to study and to start searching and finding oneself,”

he stressed.
