“Your profession is extremely important for Debrecen,” Mayor of Debrecen László Papp said at the Career Week of DSZC Commercial and Catering Technical College and Vocational Training event on Thursday. 

He gave a lecture entitled “Debrecen, the city of opportunities” at the institution. He stressed that the aim is to make Debrecen a place where it is good to live, work and raise a family.

The gym of the institution was packed, with many people interested in one of the highlights of the Career Week, where local job opportunities and the expectations of the city and companies and employers were discussed. He pointed out that the profession of technical school students is very important for Debrecen, as many foreign tourists come to the city, in addition to the local residents, and their first experience is in the hospitality sector.

“The first impression is made in the very places where you work. In restaurants, pastry shops, commercial establishments, hotels, clubs, these are one  of the first impressions that form their opinion of Debrecen, of the city, of the place they are staying in,” László Papp said.

He added that the economic development will also lead to the expansion of the service sector. László Papp also said that by the end of the decade more than 20 thousand jobs will be created in Debrecen.

The aim of the city administration is for young people studying here to work here and start families here. The Vocational Training Centre helps to achieve this by providing a career path for students alongside their training.

“At the Trade and Hospitality Technical Centre we also want to show young people where they can start a career in the future, where they can use their knowledge,”  Chancellor of the DSZC Zsolt Tirpák emphasised.

It was said at the event that the education system keeps up with the dynamic development of the city.  Young people have jobs waiting for them, which is one of the reasons why Debrecen’s unemployment rate is only 3.7-3.8 percent, compared to the county average of 5.5 percent.
