Šiauliai Territorial Labour Exchange brought together a group of young people aged under 29 years from Radviliškis city with the aim in view to familiarize them with the UAB Juodeliai, a wood processing company. First thing before going to visit facilities of the Company, the group had been introduced to the motto of the excursion: “Be inquisitive, show your open mind, and employers will help you to create your future“.

The sponsor of KTU Career Days Prime Minister Algirdas Butkevičius visited the stand of our company after the official opening of the event. In summer of 2015 the Prime Minister visited the manufacturing facility of UAB Juodeliai in Radviliškis, so the moments of that visit were remembered during the meeting.

UAB Juodeliai participated in the Career Days of VGTU on 17 March for the second time. Representatives of the companies were welcomed in the main building of VGTU by the performance of the Orchestra of the Lithuanian Army, which set the mood and gave a good start for the contacts fair. Our stand attracted a considerable crowd of students and alumni this year as well.

Career contact fairs are organized by the schools of higher education all over the world. This alternative for the traditional way of job search gives an opportunity for a young person to find a work or training place „here and now“ – simply by approaching the employer at the stand and offering one‘s candidacy.

Representatives of UAB Juodeliai who participate in contact fairs not only look for employees and trainees, but also introduce students to the activities of the company and the future perspectives. Participation this year was also productive. There were several hundred student contacts obtained, which will help the growing company fill the available work places faster with new specialist.
