The last time we could provide job seekers with an opportunity to meet their potential employers was a few days before the pandemic fully hit our regions. Finally, after two years, Profesia Days are back and with new concepts! On 18th and 19th of May we welcomed our amazing clients and job seekers in unique and new spaces of Nivy Centrum (Nivy Mall). Not only did we change the location to bring us closer to people, but we also came up with innovative ideas. Profesia introduced Skill Lab – a place where our visitors could focus on their skills, improve, or explore what to learn. Main stage was packed with inspiring speakers – from Marian Gaborik, a Slovak ice hockey legend, to Matej Drlicka, director of Slovak National Theater. The full program of the main stage accommodated around 30 presentations/interviews over the two days with significant people across various fields. Profesia Days would not be a thing without the exhibitors, 80 companies reserved their stands to be closer to their potential new employees.
Despite huge changes since the last Profesia Days in 2020, such as working without our own event department, we were confident that Profesia Days are important, and we challenged ourselves to reinvent them. The first day started with an opening speech by Ivana Molnarova, Profesia's CEO, and from then on, the place was buzzing with people. We recorded around 5400 visitors, with 24% of them coming to both days. We are still waiting for more data but from the overly positive feedback from our clients, visitors and general atmosphere, we are happy to say that Profesia Days came back after 2 years and with a huge success!
