Published on / opublikowano 11-01-2021

Dear Colleagues,

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought several uncertainties about employment and employability and how companies and workplaces will be configured. It also moved the conversation about the future of work into the present. Despite all the uncertainties one thing is for sure: change is inevitable. At the same time we’re facing changes in the labour market, organizations, skills, jobs and so on we cannot forget the role of our Career Services and explore how can they be proactive in addressing the immediate needs of the post-pandemic undergraduates and graduates career.
That is why we do not want to finish this difficult and demanding year of 2020 without addressing you an invitation to be part of 3rd International Staff Training Week of the University of Porto (Portugal) concerning Career and Employability Services. Under the main subject: Stay Connected - challenges for the new decade this on-line event will be held from January 19th to January 21st.
