Company Shuttle in Macedonia
Company Shuttle is a project being organized in Macedonia since 2015, intended to be hold once a year. Main goal of this international project is primarily, to let companies present themselves and their work to a group of young academic people, all students and graduates. Furthermore, to give the opportunity to these enthusiasts to take a one day trip to the company and have an up-close look at their working environment and insight in their possible future employments.
Why Company Shuttle?
We can come to a conclusion that both, employer and students, need a mediator who will make a better and closer relationship between them.
The employers are aiming to not only innovate, eager to teach students, but also to show significant professional engagement. On the other hand, the students don’t get the whole picture about what the company they are interested in is doing. That’s why there is a Company Shuttle, to help both sides.
This creates basis for new and innovative ways of communication between students and companies. In the role of mediator and organizer of this project is IAESTE Macedonia.
This project is an opportunity for better approach to academic learning, where most of the attention is focused on theoretical way of problem solving, but also the business world, where practical, engineering solutions are expected.
Nowadays, projects with similar approach are done in other countries too. The positive feedback from them is a confirmation for its legitimacy.
