The IAESTE Wine Night is back on the IAESTE Malta calendar and we cannot be happier!
Bringing students and companies together is one of the tenets of IAESTE and forms the basis of our internship system. It is therefore of no surprise that the IAESTE Wine Night has been for years one of the most important IAESTE Malta events on campus!
So this is how it works:
- We tell companies that students are eager to meet them in an informal setting!
- We tell students that companies are eager to meet them in an informal setting!
- We provide wine.
Wine. Yes, this is our secret of getting students to face the intimidating (well, not really) company representatives and get tips on a successful career, while (hopefully) inspiring and sharing ideas and the enthusiasm for their line of work with potential employers and established professionals.
This year we added another successful Wine Night to our list, held on the 10th of April. After the customary first few awkward shy moments, the ice was soon broken, wine bottles opened, and the room turned into a vibrant sphere of discussion, advise sharing and story-telling. It is immensely satisfying seeing around 15 budding architects gathered around a well-established architect to listen to his stories, or a group of scientists and engineers discussing start-ups.
Here at IAESTE Malta we are overwhelmed by the great response shown both by students and companies and would like to thank Hotset, Architecture Project, Malta Chamber of Scientists, Malta Life Sciences Park, DeMicoli and Associates, NetRefer, National Statistics Office, WasteServ, TAKEOFF, Inbound Muse, SWOT, DOT BLUE COMMERCE and Edwin Mintoff Architects for joining us, together with Emmanuel Delicata Winemaker Ltd for sponsoring the event.
