Εν συντομία και με απλά λόγια: Απόφοιτοι ΣΕΜΦΕ με μεταπτυχιακό σε Operations Research και καλές ακαδημαϊκές επιδόσεις και καλά presentation skills μπορούν αρκετά εύκολα να γίνουν δεκτοί στην παρακάτω θέση Ερευνητή για Έρευνα με Ανθρωπιστικές Οργανώσεις (πχ Red Cross). Γνωρίζω πολύ καλά τον καθηγητή που έκανε την ανακοίνωση και αν πληροίτε τα παραπάνω έχετε αρκετές πιθανότητες να γίνετε δεκτοί. Στείλτε μου email για περισσότερες πληροφορίες αν σας ενδιαφέρει.

(Σημείωση: Ο μισθός θα είναι εξαιρετικός (λογικά άνω των 1,600EUR το μήνα καθαρά, που υπεραρκούν για την περιοχή), και θα δουλεύετε με έναν από τους πιο διακεκριμένους καθηγητές στον χώρο του Operations Management, Luk Van Wassenhove. Τι μπορείτε να κάνετε μετά από 1-2 χρόνια εκεί? Θα μπείτε πολύ εύκολα σε ένα top Business School ως PhD Students, αν σας γράψει συστατικό γράμμα ο Luk, ή μπορείτε να μπείτε σε Management position σε κάποιο Humanitarian Organisation, στα κεντρικά τους γραφεία στην Ευρώπη, ή αλλού.)
