The Rector of UzhNU Volodymyr Smolanka said: "We appreciate the cooperation with such a successful company as «Jabil». A lot of our alumni have been employed by the enterprise. It is important that they are satisfied with the salaries and the conditions created for them by the employer. In view of this, we intend to expand our partnership, because it is important for us to be able to offer well-paid jobs to our graduates in their native country. We discussed a long-range collaboration plan between UzhNU and “Jabil”, which in particular includes a new for our country dual education program. According to it, students can combine the study at our university with the job at the enterprise related to their major. Thus, the enterprise interested in high level professionals can be involved in the training of young specialists. "

Business environment is developing rapidly and the university should keep pace with its development by training the specialists, highly competitive at the market. "Our task is not only to provide high quality education, but also help students find good jobs. «Jabil» provides such opportunities, it is ready to cooperate with the university. The company provides good opportunities for professional growth and salaries that are higher than the average in Ukraine,"- said Oleksandr Rohach.
