    Tuesday, 04 October 2011
    In September 2011, JobTiger launched a new social project with the general sponsorship of UniCredit Bulbank and the support of HP and E. ON, and in partnership with university career centers - social network for student projects.

    Kosher.bg is a platform for self-organization of student clubs and support and development of student projects in different fields - from art to information technology. The purpose of the website is to give students the opportunity to materialize their personal interests out of the university. Here they will be able to form groups or so called Clubs of Interests where they can be active in areas of their own choice. All students can be part of the network by registering the club of interest they are members in, at their university or to create a new club and register it at the platform.

    At the same time Kosher.bg will put students in conditions close to real business, to encourage them to develop their leadership skills and entrepreneurial spirit, so needed after graduation. Each club will be able to apply with a project close to their main activity, and receive an expert advice and/or direct funding for their idea. JobTiger will be the mediator between student clubs and companies from real business.

    As part of a leading European banking group UniCredit Bulbank is constantly investing in young people. Therefore, the bank is always looking for talents that are open to meeting new challenges, not afraid to take responsibility, seek new opportunities to learn and achieve results. "Our goals are to provide training and development of talented students and young professionals," said Emanuele Rekia, Managing Director of "Human Resources" at UniCredit Bulbank. Tsvetanka Mincheva, a Deputy Director of General Directorate "Retail Banking" at UniCredit Bulbank said: "The cooperation between the bank and young professionals is the classic situation that benefits both sides. This partnership is key to any business that strives for sustainability."

    Through the integration with social networks, Kosher.bg allows students to share broadly their works and thus expand their contacts with real business and facilitate their careers.

    Along with the start of Kosher.bg, JobTiger organizes a series of information days for freshmen orientation. Events entitled "Freshmen Orientation Week at your University" are held in three of the largest universities in Sofia:
