It depends on your profile. The job offers for environmental engineers in the private sector are not so overwhelming. There are not so many environmental issues in Zarzis. The government should help us. I strongly hope that it will get better.
„No matter what you do, stay away of politics.“ That means, that all our workshops and events are apolitical. And that’s exactly what we prefer as an association. We want to represent all engineers. Moreover politics can ruin our reputatation very fast.
Nesrin: I got in touch with AJIZ about social media.
They offered places in one of their workshops and so I attended one. I liked the idea to represent all young engineers and I decided to become a member. After my garduation I like to work for AJIZ. I like enviromental issues and the work of AJIZ.
AJIZ started in a café during a coffee break with friends. Somebody proposed to create a community platform for young engineers. At the beginning, we were thinking only about internships. Now we are a community of 100 members, 30 of them are active members, 20 members are living in Zarzis, 60 in Tunis and 20 in France.
We run a project called “Zarzis success’ stories”. In this year we had already our third edition. The main goal of this event is to inspire people from Zarzis with stories of successful engineers. These successful engineers do workshops within high schools and give an idea about universities. They promote to study engineering. Moreover we run the “Café Prepa”. There we prepare and consult students for the entrance examinations of engineering schools.
You are an engineer in Zarzis or Tunis and interested to become a member of AJIZ or to follow their news published on facebook? More details
