How to turn your practical training into a full-time job:

The workshop emphasizes the importance of practical training as a means for students to apply the theoretical knowledge they have acquired during their study period into practice, identify the nature and needs of the labour market, gain experience, and learn more about a specific career field. Practical training is also a means for institutions to place students on probation to measure their performance and consider the possibility of giving them the opportunity of full-time employment after successfully passing the training period. In this workshop, we will help students and graduates use some effective methods to achieve the above goals.
