OSF Digital Joins Open Doors Week at UBC Palas Iași and Grants Several iOSiF Scholarships

April 23 | 2018

April 23, 2018 , Iași – OSF Digital kicks off “Open Doors Week at UBC” (United Business Center Palas Iași), an event organized by IULIUS as part of the “Iași - The City of Your Future” project, on Monday, April 23, 2018, between 2:30 PM and 3:30 PM. Following this event, at 3:30 PM, OSF Digital will grant 3 iOSiF scholarships to mark the successful end of yet another year of this valued collaboration with the Iosif Foundation which first began in 2016.

Open Doors Week represents an opportunity for OSF to support students who are considering a future career in IT. The company will provide their unique perspective about all of the various opportunities currently available and the professional development options they offer. This event features interactive debates that offer a wide variety of helpful tips and tricks related to the recruitment process.

After a guided tour with an OSF representative, the students will have the chance to learn more about the company during a presentation that will be followed by a Q&A session. The main goal of these activities is to help students get up-to-date with the variety of job opportunities available within the company, how they should prepare for these roles, and how to gain access to IT jobs with no prior experience.

To accomplish this, OSF invites senior students from the Faculty of Computer Science at the Alexandru Ioan Cuza University of Iași, and the Faculty of Computer Engineering and Automatic Control at the Gheorghe Asachi Technical University of Iași. Students specialized in Business Administration or Economic Informatics at the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration at the Alexandru Ioan Cuza University of Iasi are also able to join in this session.

Following this event, OSF will grant iOSiF scholarships to 3 college students who have successfully followed a personal development plan. In turn, these students will provide individual mentorship to high-school students taking part in the “Give Your DREAMS the Wings to FLY!” project that was started by OSF and the Iosif Foundation in 2016.

The main goal of this project and the scholarships is to reduce the school abandonment rate among disadvantaged middle school, high-school and college students. The initiative aims to encourage consistent school attendance during the 2018-2019 academic year, ensure each student improves their overall performance and learn the skills necessary to be independent. Several of the values promoted through this project include accessing equal opportunities, achieving excellence in education and taking care of one another.

OSF Digital relies on these kinds of events to help emphasize the potential of the local academic scene and to offer examples of the career development opportunities that are available within the region.
