With our laptops open and wearing our favourite SOLIDitech Branded Tops (with coffees in hand)…
Focused University Career Fairs such as the University of Johannesburg’s STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths) Career Fair are very effective at bringing together students focused on their potential career opportunities with leading companies within the Software and Technology space.
We at SOLIDitech particularly love these events as it gives us a chance to share our real-world career and industry experience with our ‘future employees’. By making our Team available for questions, advice and guidance we’re helping by:
- Giving a glimpse into what Software Engineering actually is in the real world
- Advising students on how to best position themselves for employment success
- Sharing what it’s like to work within our company
… and the University of Johannesburg and their student body came prepared and keen to find out more about their future career path options at this year’s UJ Career Fair.
We led the UJ Career Fair with our mantra of ‘Software Engineering is a Team Sport’ – something we firmly believe in. Our team for the day consisted of Software Engineers, Quality Assurance Analysts, Scrum Managers and Business Analysts – all roles that are vital to the successful delivery of a high quality software solution.
We hosted our stand, had many engaging conversations, hosted our own presentation about what Engineering means to us as a team and launched our ‘Career Path Quiz’ competition for the event.
Thank you very much to the University of Johannesburg for hosting such a wonderful event, and congratulations to our competition winner. Thank you too to everyone who took the time to come and chat to us at the event, we had a wonderful time meeting you all.
We have a number of career opportunities which provide a great space for young graduates to kick off their career in the best possible environment – a SOLID environment. Have a look at our Careers Centre to see what is available ->
