BUCHAREST, ROMANIA, January 08, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Following interviews and selection tests, 28 candidates were selected to start OSF Global Services internship programs conducted in July and August. The programs were dedicated to students and fresh graduates looking for a job, candidates who wanted to improve their technical knowledge and prepare for a future job and people with non-technical studies, but passionate about programming.
One of the novelties brought by OSF Global Services internships resides in the way the program was organized: the activities were conducted online, giving participants the opportunity to work and learn from home, which did not involve any financial effort on their part. Until now 15 of the 28 participants have joined the company and the recruiting process continues, leaving the opportunities open for the rest of the graduates.
Developing such a program could not be possible without the support of teachers from partner institutions, Stefan cel Mare University of Suceava and Faculty of Electronics, Communications and Computer Science at the University of Pitesti. Prof. Ph.D Cristina TURCU, Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Stefan cel Mare University of Suceava (USV) says: «Such initiatives, like internships in private companies, are received with great interest by academic institutions. These activities are complementary to our theoretical courses thus helping achieving a systemic approach to technical training, with positive results for the future graduates. OSF Global Services, through everything that is achieving, can be viewed as a partner that any university needs. I say this thinking not only to their support in organizing various national and international student events but mainly to their important feedback on graduates' professional level and educational needs. The collaboration between USV and OSF Global Services is a proof of successful partnership between universities and the business environment.
OSF Global Services constanty develops educational programs designed to provide students, graduates and non-technical job applicants with the basic knowledge they need in order to successfully pass through the recruiting process and become part of company's team. The local branch of the company is already in its second summer internship program; first edition took place in 2012 when 14 out of 20 participants were employed.
OSF Global Services is a continuously growing IT company based in Quebec, Canada. Since 2003, OSF Global Services provides software development and IT consulting services through its offices in the United States, France, Germany, UK, Italy, Romania and Ukraine. The company supports young IT graduates through internships within the company or training programs, facilitating their access to high level IT education.
