In light of the ongoing technical progress and growth of competitiveness within the world market, it is crucial that companies employ qualified personnel.
The knowledge, experience, skills and abilities of a company’s personnel comprises the human capital of a company, and determines the competitiveness and success of the company. Human Resource Development programs are deemed successful if they are able to attract and retain highly-qualified staff. This leads to increased labor productivity and business performance. The internship process should facilitate the identification of prospective young people, paving the way for a successful career and employment opportunities.
In this direction, our company has launched a program which initiated the foundation for mutual collaboration between Black Sea Terminal LLC and Georgian Technical University.
The purpose of this collaboration is to involve the most successful students in the company’s internship process, to strengthen the intern’s theoretical knowledge with practical skills - and to provide the intern with a real opportunity for professional employment. This is a great opportunity to foster business relations with professionals and share best practices.
It should be noted that during the internship, young people will be provided with the best working conditions, and highly qualified engineers and technical personnel will look after their professional growth. The intern will have the opportunity to work within an environment that offers modern, developed infrastructure.
Georgian Technical University has selected the first group of applicants: Future Mechanical Engineers, Electrical Engineers, Instrumentation Engineers and others. BST management, HR and Legal Department are holding intensive meetings with this group to properly gauge each individual’s potential and intellectual level. This will determine the strategic plan, which will give them the opportunity to obtain professional knowledge in practice. The internship applicants will be interviewed and the successful candidates will have the opportunity to engage in practical work spanning various departments.
This project is not a one-time event, and will continue and evolve. We believe it will enhance cooperation with the technical university and other prestigious universities of Georgia, as well as with representatives of the technical and business management field. It will also actively raise young people’s motivation and most importantly, will be the guarantor of the smooth migration of company human resources.
