04.11.2015. Bucharest. METRO SYSTEMS Romania, the IT company member of the METRO GROUP, provides complete IT solutions for METRO GROUP's sales lines operating in 30 countries in Europe and Asia, organises OPEN DAY @ METRO SYSTEMS on December 8th, 2015, an event dedicated to students from technical universities and colleges.

Based on the communication campaign slogan of Traineeship 2.0 program - "Start Your Agile Adventure!", METRO SYSTEMS Romania aims to select the best technical students, who will have the opportunity to be part of the 'agile' teams within the company.

"In partnership with INSPIRE, employer branding, media and publishing agency, we will select 30 students to enter a traineeship program which will take place in two stages: in the first six months, depending on their technical knowledge, students will take part in several projects and will study together with several teams. This is the adjustment stage. Then follows a different development stage, when based on an assessment, students will be integrated into the departments that fit best their technical profile. We are already talking about the specialization stage. During this period, students will work in an international environment, alongside IT specialists and will benefit from many development opportunities within METRO SYSTEMS. Throughout the program, a team of top mentors is ready to help young talents to ensure their path to success.", declares Sidonia Barna, Human Resources Senior Manager, METRO SYSTEMS Romania.

"We have prepared specialties focused on innovation in software development using technologies such as Java, Oracle and QA testing, as well as in applications management for CRM solutions, Business Intelligence, Checkout Systems, systems management and Helpdesk. Also, this year we have opened a new position for a non-technical role in the human resources department." Barna completed.

The Traineeship program is for a period of one year, it is paid and requires the students to be part-time present. The program is flexible part-time because we want to offer those younger colleagues the opportunity to successfully combine work experience with academic activities at METRO SYSTEMS Romania. Moreover, after the first six months students will have the opportunity to choose a flexible full-time program, depending on their availability.

Students who enter in the traineeship program will be selected based on a motivation interview, according to the compatibility with the desired profiles and a technical test. All selected students will be invited to participate at a special event OPEN DAY @ METRO SYSTEMS on 8 December 2015, where will have the occasion to learn new information about the company and to participate at a practical workshop related to their interests. The suitable candidates will sign labor contracts with METRO SYSTEMS Romania starting January 2016.
