The average for the other CVs posted at the Profesia.sk job portal was three, the TASR newswire reported.

The second highest interest was in the graduates of the University of Economics in Bratislava (EUBA)’s Faculty of International Relations, followed by the graduates of the Žilina Technical University’s Faculty of Management and Informatics, whose CVs are also seen by seven employers in average.

More than six employers look at the CVs of graduates from Comenius University’s Faculty of Mathematics, Physics and Informatics, and STU’s Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, TASR wrote.

Regarding the universities, the most demanded graduates come from the University of Economics in Bratislava (EUBA), followed by the STU and the Žilina Technical University. Compared to last year, the interest in graduates from the Slovak Agricultural University in Nitra increased, mostly as a result of the higher interest in graduates from its technical faculty.

On the other hand, the highest drop was seen in interest of employers in graduates of the University of Matej Bel in Banská Bystrica, as reported by TASR.

Only 6 percent of graduates who were searching for work in the past three years stated in their CVs that they underwent practical training or an internship during their studies. The fact is, however, that the practical experience help graduates find work and increases the interest of employers by 10 percent compared to those without experience.

Profesia compiled the list only based on the interest of employers who are searching for new employees. It does not say anything about the quality of the university, TASR wrote.
