With these goals in mind, the organization regularly attends career fairs in countries where it has offices (Italy, Spain, Switzerland and the United States) to share its organizational profile and job and internship opportunities with potential candidates.

UNICC offers internship opportunities for college students in a variety of fields, from all areas of digital business and technology, to enhance their educational experience with professional training and exposure to the organization’s work.

Presentation to the institute of telecommunications and multimedia applications

On 4 November 2021, UNICC colleagues visited the Institute of Telecommunications and Multimedia Applications (iTEAM), a research centre integrated in the Polytechnic City of Innovation at the Valencia Polytechnic University (UPV), in Spain. The UPV is currently made up of around 28,000 students, 2,500 teaching staff and researchers, and comprises 13 university centres.

Matilde Gil, Network Infrastructure Architect at UNICC, delivered a presentation together with Ana Ferrandiz, Head of Infrastructure Support Unit at UNICC. The team’s goal was to introduce UNICC and its mission, vision, services and solutions to iTEAM and UPV members.

The iTEAM, who are most specialized in multimedia applications, signal processing, antennas and wireless communication, were very interested to know more about UNICC, and they were happy to share some interesting initiatives that would strengthen common objectives starting with the event Quédate TELECO.
