Job Shadow Day 2014 at the XWiki

Apr 14 2014

The XWiki team welcomed this year another edition of Job Shadow Day at the Iasi Office!

Four high school students arrived on Friday morning at the office excited to find out what working in an IT company is like and how they can shape a career in this field. The members of the XWiki team that voluntary participated to the program were more than happy to give their general insight with a nice particular focus on how life at XWiki is.

After the well-known initial tour of the office and meeting the XWikiers, the high school students shared with us a little bit about their background, passions and expectations. This was followed by presentations on the company and some of the positions we have at XWiki: Project Manager, Web Developer, Web Designer and QA Engineer. The XWiki team volunteers had presentations on their areas of expertise and answered any questions related to their job, offered their support in installing the XWiki product, creating applications and doing tests. 

We also watched videos toghether, solved quizzes, had free discussions and a nice lunch, taking most of the allocated time. We're looking forward to see the students again with other occasions and we hope next year we'll be hosting again Job Shadow Day at the office!
