Updates on AmCham's Career Orientation Program

Who would have thought it has already been three months since we launched the Career Orientation Program?

Since last November, 83 schools and 91 companies registered with 189 corporate volunteers nationwide - and over 50 school visits have already taken place! 

We are extremely grateful to all of our corporate volunteers - the so-called Career Ambassadors - and would like to give a special thanks for the hard work of our most active Ambassadors, who have already held more than five lectures, each since November: Zoltán Dankó and László Popovics from OTP Bank and Andras Gasparetz from MagiCom.

Thank you for inspiring us and others!

HOW CAN I JOIN? 

  • First and foremost, we encourage you to engage your colleagues to take part in the program, independent of rank or seniority! 

  • Once you have decided to become an Ambassador, please visit karrierorientacio.hu to join the platform in a few easy steps under the "Registration" subpage. 

  • If you are an AmCham member, you can find your company on the registration page. However, please note that the program is also open for non-members.

  • When creating your profile, make sure to specify your area of expertise and the topics you plan to cover during a 45-minute lecture. 

  • Once you are a registered Career Ambassador, please make sure to browse registered schools and be proactive, get in touch with them through their profile on the platform (once you are logged in) and start arranging your first school visit! Should you need help during the process, please reach out to us or send an email to karrierorientacio@amcham.hu. 

  • In order to help Career Ambassadors prepare for the lectures, we have put together a practical handbook with specific, easy-to-use advice and resources to guide you through this experience (please note that you need to log in to the page to access the document). 

  • Also, in the upcoming months a new user tutorial will be released for new joiners!

  • Don't forget, that after your school visit please make sure to evaluate the experience and the hosting school on the page! Please note that schools will also send feedback on your lecture. 
  • Finally, check out your status on the Career Ambassador leaderboard (accessible if logged in), to see your current ranking! You can gain extra points (XPs) by visiting schools, providing feedback or logging in to the page.

A FEW WORDS ABOUT AMCHAM’S CAREER ORIENTATION PROGRAM

Career Orientation Program was initiated by AmCham Hungary with the mission to help prepare high school students for one of the most important decisions of their lives: choosing their career paths. The program was launched in professional partnership with the Ministry of Innovation and Technology and the Ministry of Human Capabilities. 

With the pro-bono work of TATA Consultancy Services we have created a platform (karrierorientacio.hu) which allows the volunteers of AmCham member companies and the representatives of Hungarian high schools to arrange career orientation visits.

We are proud to say that Arconic Foundation is also a partner of the program, as in 2018-2019 they support the content development and also the nationwide roadshow of the Career Ambassador Program, with a specual focus in STEM orientation. 

Check out our latest video, explaining how the Career Orientation Program works.
