Talk directly with companies to get to know the skills required, what positions they offer and to be able to evaluate the proposals in relation to their vocations. With this objective, hundreds of students and recent graduates of theUniversità Campus Bio-Medico di Roma participated today in Job Day 2023, the appointment he put together over 45 local, national and international companies. Meetings with companies and informative interviews filled the morning in the spaces of the University in via Àlvaro del Portillo which, with its 14 degree courses, today offers complete and valuable training in the fields of medicine,ingengineering, sustainability and nutrition with integrated study paths in step with market needs.

An important occasion for the young participants to present themselves directly to companies through individual interviews and follow the presentations of the companies to deepen the knowledge of all the entrepreneurial realities present. With Job Day UCBM promotes uA new way of orientation by creating direct contact between students and companies even before graduation, allowing you to get to know each other and propose yourself according to your aptitudes and desires.

To enrich the day also the talk on "Trends and scenarios of the labor market" in which illustrious guests discussed the new professional opportunities and new placement models in the various industrial sectors, from the more specific for training courses such as chemistry, food, pharmaceutical and biomedical up to the broader areas such as information technology, electronics, automation and consultancy. The talk was attended by the Rector UCBM teacher. Eugenio Guglielmelli, L 'CEO and GM UCBM Andrea Rossi, the pro-rector for teaching and vicar of the rector UCBM prof Laura De Gara, the President and CEO of AlmaLaurea Srl Francesca Pasquini and the Vice President of Unindustria Giuseppe Biazzo. 

"We are increasingly convinced of the value of training built in close connection with the productive world – underlined prof Laura De Gara – a model that helps to immediately introduce our students into the world of work. We offer students who are completing their university career direct contact with the many professional worlds in which their studies can find application: an opportunity to better direct their educational path and develop their vocations, both human and professional, to be protagonists of their future path of life and work".

During the interventions, the numerous challenges posed today by the world of work were highlighted: from the need for continuous updating of skills, in rapid change in every sector, to the emergence of an increasingly multidisciplinary work and research method and contamination of knowledge, from the new trends that emerged after the pandemic with the various forms of "hybrid" work, to the increasingly felt need and desire to reconcile the needs of work with those of the family, for women as for men. 

"In the face of a context of profound change in which it is the candidate who takes on the leading role in the recruitment processesing, being present as AlmaLaurea Srl at an event like this underlines how much the university and working worlds must increasingly walk together - stresses Francesca Pasquini, President and CEO of AlmaLaurea Srl - As an AlmaLaurea system we want to fully respond to our mission of being a bridge between the university and the world of the professions and we are constantly at work to do so. Every day our commitment is aimed at offering services and innovations that facilitate both companies in the search for talent and male and female students in finding their own path and to offer support and enhancement of the orientation and placement paths offered by the universities".

The speakers, coordinated by Deputy director of the Raffaele Marmo national newspaper, underlined the importance of building profiles in line with the needs of the productive world, given the difficulty of companies in finding the profiles they are looking for and the speed with which skills risk becoming obsolete.

"I am convinced that events like this are necessary to reaffirm the importance of investing in the entire technical-professional education chain, in an orientation that allows families, students and teachers to better understand what is really needed in the world of work today - said Giuseppe Biazzo, Vice President of Unindustria with responsibility for human capital and business culture - At university level we have a 40% mismatch which mainly concerns STEM, chemical-pharmaceutical, mathematical, physical and computer sciences, ingindustrial, electronic and information engineering. We must create real poles of attraction; innovation, skills, continuous training, simplification, valorisation of human resources are the future of work".
