STUDENTS WRITE PROJECTS IN THE CAMPAIGN "MY PROFESSION - MY FUTURE"

22 May 2020



The future of the country is in the hands of the young, enterprising Bulgarians. Thousands of students graduate from universities every year, and yet companies are exhausted in their search for quality staff. The shortage of specialists in our country leads to the gradual elimination of Bulgaria from the competition for new investments on the world market. With the idea to help the local business in the search for qualified employees and to assist in developing a close relationship between schools and entrepreneurs, the Portal of Bulgarian Municipalities KMETA.bg organizes a national campaign "My profession - my future". With the large-scale initiative KMETA.bg will support the development of the Bulgarian business and will give a shoulder to the talented young specialists to be found by the most suitable employer for them.


The initiative started on May 11, 2020 in partnership with 29 established Bulgarian universities, 9 large companies, and the patron is the Ministry of Labour and Social Policy.

From May 11 to June 14, 2020, all interested students can send their application by registering and submitting their innovative project on a selected topic on a specially created platform.

Each participant can send up to 1 /one/ project on a specific topic/area, according to the list attached to these rules, in a selected professional field, and it must be explicitly indicated for which company the project was developed.

A competent jury, represented by the companies - partners of the initiative, will decide on the awarded participants in the national campaign. Each of the represented companies has the right to choose only one winner on the topic, which they announced, who will receive a cash prize of 2000 /two thousand/ BGN, as well as a career opportunity in the company (at the discretion of the company).
