#USOPontheway Mobile Promotion Campaign’s Türkiye Career Fairs Tour Completed Successfully!

Our #USOPontheway Mobile Promotion Campaign met with thousands of visitors from different parts of Türkiye throughout March. Our campaign vehicle reached hundreds of thousands of people and explained both the projects under the umbrella of USOP and the educational opportunities provided by the European Union to young people.

While information was conveyed to approximately 4500 people in total through face-to-face promotions, 125 thousand people were successfully reached through social media. Our Mobile Promotion Campaign vehicle, which has completed its Turkey tour, continues its journey to meet with citizens in other cities. 

Our #USOPontheway Mobile Promotion Campaign vehicle started its tour on March 4 and 5, 2022 with the Eastern Black Sea Career Fair, which hosts nearly 20,000 students from different universities in Trabzon every year and covers many different sectors, especially informatics, pharmacy, defence industry, transportation, education, and banking. Mr. Burak Aykan, Director General for EU and Foreign Relations of the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure, visited our Mobile Promotion Campaign vehicle at the Eastern Black Sea Career Fair and held various meetings.

Many official contacts were also made during the fair. Trabzon Metropolitan Transportation Inc. General Manager Mr. Samet Ali Yıldız visited our Mobile Promotion Campaign vehicle. Mr. Mustafa Bahar, Director of Trabzon Coastal Safety, was one of the many who visited our Mobile Promotion Campaign vehicle. Mr. Salih Tan, Director General of Shipyards and Coastal Structures, Mr. Ünal Baylan, Director General of Maritime Affairs, Ms. Leyla Akıncı, Director General of Personnel, Ms. Nurgül Uraloğlu, General Director of Legal Services visited our USOP Mobile Promotion Campaign vehicle. During the visits, general information about USOP's activities and project details was given.

Our second stop was the Eastern Anatolia Career Fair (DAKAF'22), which was held at the Recep Tayyip Erdoğan Fair Centre in Erzurum on March 7 and 8, 2022. The intense participation of industry stakeholders and young people in the fair was noteworthy.

Afterwards, we attended the Silkroad Career Fair, which was held at GAÜN Mavera Congress and Art Centre on March 11 and 12 and hosted by Gaziantep University (GAÜN). In the fair held at the GAÜN Congress and Art Centre in order to bring university students and graduates together with the public and employers, our Mobile Promotion Campaign vehicle met with the people of the region and the youth for two days and carried out information activities.

We participated in the Eastern Mediterranean Career Fair on 14 and 15 March, hosted by Çukurova University, in partnership with seven state universities and two private universities in the Eastern Mediterranean region and Northren Cyprus universities.

On the 21st and 22nd of March, our Mobile Promotion Vehicle met with the people of Izmir in Fair Izmir A Hall. The two-day fair turned into a festival as students from universities in the surrounding cities moved to the venue

Western Black Sea Career Fair, which was held at Bolu AIBU Congress Center on 25 and 26 March, was another stop for our Mobile Promotion Center, where heavy communication traffic was carried out.

One of the main purposes of the career fairs was to provide one-on-one information to students about USOP, ÇE-KA, EU Projects, Erasmus+, European Solidarity Programmes and Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) through our Mobile Promotion Centre team. These briefings continued inside the buildings where the fairs take place, apart from our #USOPontheway mobile promotion vehicle, which is located outdoors.

The second purpose of the career fairs was to inform students about Erasmus+, exchange and participation programmes and to organize a Q&A session by the National Agency, which is among our stakeholder institutions. Studies and presentations were made for this purpose in all regions, and thousands of students were provided guidance and counselling services. Our experts, who shared their professional experiences with the students, gave important tips about how the projects will contribute to our country and which employment areas will emerge.

In addition to the students who received guidance and information about job, internship and education opportunities at the fairs, which were flooded by visitors from all over Turkey, graduate students, secondary school student groups and families participated from the surrounding cities. During the fairs, many competitions, activities, gift distribution, training, presentations and simulation shows were held. With the social media campaign, the visibility and awareness of the USOP was successfully achieved at the fairs. After the very energetic activities throughout March, our Mobile Promotion Campaign vehicle is preparing for new routes and campaigns to meet citizens in other cities.
