FSPAC students are prepared to face their future jobs after their graduation. The students develop their abilities and skills, badly needed in a future job, but are also ready to start a business, within the project “Vocational counseling, internships and simulated enterprise: an extra chance in finding a job for students following specializations in public administration, communication, public relations and advertising“(HRD / 161 / 2.1 / G / 137 510).
In the internships carried out in public institutions, companies and NGOs, students learn what a job means, how to work in teams, how to adapt to a program and how to apply what they learned in college in actual projects and activities. In the simulated enterprises, students are involved in activities that teach how to set up and operate a business, developing their knowledge and entrepreneurial skills.
“I learned to do a budget of a company. I learned to realize an application. I learned to realize and analyze recruitment and selection policy of the company. Of course, in addition to strictly practice these things, I learned to work in a team, I take responsibility and I gained many skills that can enhance my professional development.” (Student participating in simulated enterprise, extracted from the feedback questionnaire).
