Job Shadow Day 2015 - Partners for one day

Apr 10 2015

Thursday, 9th of April 2015, was the day in which the XWiki team got involved again in the project aimed to help teenagers get more familiar with the workplace: Job Shadow Day - Partners for one day.

This time, 3 enthusiastic students from the Theoretical High School of Computer Science “Grigore Moisil” Iasi, Romania  were invited to spend some hours in the company of our colleagues. The XWikiers were happy to share their knowledge and present their daily job activity at the XWiki office.


After a quick tour of the office and meeting the team, we had the opportunity to identify the expectations of the highschool students, discover their objectives and plans and, the most important, to see how we can contribute to their future work experience. Offering them a global view of the company and, more generally, of the Open Source world, we have tried to outline as best as we could the importance of the organisational culture and structure.

The positions shadowed this edition were: Project Manager, HR & Administrative Assistant and QA Engineer, so the teenagers had the opportunity of getting a real insight, full of details about them. Their curiosity and interest regarding the aspects of the jobs presented, can only make us happy and full of hope to have had a positive influence on their professional path decisions. 


We are looking forward for the next years editions and we would always welcome people that are interested in sharing their knowledge and in having an impact on the others! If you are one of them, find your right place inside our team!
