Our students are smart, efficient and fun people which has lead to the situation where Prodekoians are very wanted employee and recruiting 3+ year student can be difficult. That means a company need to start creating good empolyer brand early, at the beginning of student's university years. Freshmen excursions, annual ball sponsoring or sponsoring Prodeko Seminar organised every spring are good options as every Prodekoians takes part organising annual ball in one's first study year and the seminar assembles the whole Prodeko society in the same place.
