Ubiwhere has been creating several initiatives that aim to bring talented students closer to the professional reality, to keep up with the changes brought by the technological sector.
Since our early days, Ubiwhere has been creating and maintaining a close relationship with universities, where there is a privileged contact with students that are related to our business areas. Thus, it allows us to understand if students are indeed ready to face the challenges brought by future professional opportunities.
With this in mind, in this close contact with universities, we’re “Learning Partners”, where there are several sessions/workshops organized to meet the main issues pointed by the students. These occasions are excellent to share our experience and vision as a company dedicated to the creation of products and solutions that improve citizens’ lives.
Besides that, many of these students that come along our way and that keep in touch with us, have the opportunity of experiencing the professional world, with an internship that suits their profile and favourite topics, at Ubiwhere. They’re oriented by someone with more experience to help and guide them in their journey (and, in many cases, they stay after the internship is over).
We’ve also created an Ubiwhere’ Ambassadors Program, where students are our spokespeople and share our culture, our identity and our vision of looking at technological challenges. It’s another door that opens towards the academic world but in a more specific community.
Last year, Tomás and Chico, both Computer Engineering students at the University of Aveiro, took on this role and now they are an essential key in the communication of several events thought for students.
This workshop represents one of Ubiwhere’s different efforts to empower the local community, providing students with more technical skills and constant soft skills growth. And, at the same time, Ubiwhere can instigate the creation of job opportunities where technology is brilliantly integrated into our lives.
