On the 20th of September, 2021, a webinar “A KSMU graduate at the labor market: employment problems and ways to solve them” was held, which was conducted by a specialist of the KSMU graduate employment Center, psychologist Irina Igorevna Kosilova. Issues related to the peculiarities of employment of graduates of the Kursk State Medical University in the context of their specialties were discussed in live broadcasting. Irina Igorevna emphasized the fact that graduates of our university annually have high employment rates in their specialty. The emphasis was placed on the fact that the majority of KSMU graduates continue their studies at the next stage in educational institutions of the Russian Federation.

The speaker of the event introduced the students to the university’s system of promoting the employment of graduates and the areas of work of the KSMU Graduate Employment Center. Special attention was paid to the acquaintance of students with the information channels of the KSMU career service – the official website, the community in the VKontakte social network, the information stands of the university, where the personnel needs of medical institutions are broadcast. Irina Igorevna told about the existing formats of interaction between employers and students and residents of KSMU and invited them to actively participate in career-oriented events. Among all the available formats, the largest event is the annual “KSMU Job Fair”, which is traditionally held in April. The event allows the graduate to study the labor market in their specialty, choose a vacant position and conclude preliminary employment agreements with a recruiter.

During the discussion, the webinar participants discovered a new resource for interaction with employers using the Digital career environment “Faculty”. “Faculty” is not only vacancies for employers, but also online courses for professional self-improvement, internships, career events and other opportunities.
