  • Wednesday, 6th of December – meeting in Estonia
    Early in the morning we caught a coach to Tallinn. Once we arrived we had a look around the E-Estonia showroom and we were given a presentation about technology and found out that unlike in the rest of the world, almost all public services can be carried out in Estonia online by using an electronic ID which every Estonian resident has. After that, we were given more time to look around the showroom. Next, we visited the Estonian company Primend OÜ and were told about different positions available and that the company likes to employ people who have only just finished college despite the fact that it takes time to train them. It was stressed that communication skills and knowledge of the ethics surrounding communication are very important in this field of work and that employees have to repeatedly deal with people who have IT problems. A former student of Rakvere Ametikool told us what his average day is like at the company. After that w ehad atour in Ülemiste Technopolis Campus which was very interesting. Then we quickly bought some food and caught the coach to Tallinn University of Technology where we were given a short talk about the university: particularly about different opportunities of studies and student life. We also looked around the Student’s Union. Then half of us went to do a workshop on creating mobile games and the other half did a workshop on programming microcontrollers with Phyton. Late in the evening, we returned to Rakvere.
