Budapest 2022 Career Selection Exhibition between October 4-5. The interest in BKIK’s stand was outstanding: this year, thousands of students visited the Career Orientation Pötty, where, in addition to the presentation of the carpenters and upholsterers participating in the Junior Skills competition and career orientation support from the experts of the Budapest Chamber, with influencers, Vthey could also meet Vivi and Norbi Nagy from Erébély. THE the popular couple authentically demonstrated how cool it is to learn a profession and how important it is to have well-educated and well-earning professionals on the market.

From the point of view of the sustainable functioning of the domestic economy, skilled labor is of fundamental importance, of which there is currently a shortage in many specialized fields. In order to ensure continuous supply, it is essential to continuously promote vocational training, namely along the Vocational Training 4.0 strategy, with the closest possible involvement of economic actors. We believe that BKIK can effectively support the balancing role of renewed vocational training in the labor market even in the medium term with its comprehensive career guidance work that meets the current labor market and pedagogical requirements and the purposeful exploitation of its partnerships.
