Editorial

“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” – St. Augustine Noi, studenţii ne aflăm undeva la limita dintre adolescenţă şi maturitate, momentul în care trebuie să începem lupta pentru un loc de muncă, să facem economii şi să ne facem griji pentru viitor. Dacă asta ar fi ultima vară pe care ţi-ai putea-o petrece fără să îţi faci probleme pentru ziua de mâine, ziua de mâine, cum ai alege să o petreci? Ai profita de fiecare secundă, îţi spui probabil. Atunci de ce nu alegi să călătoreşti? Momentele care îţi vor rămâne întipărite în memorie pentru totdeauna nu sunt acelea în care ai învăţat pentru un examen sau ultimul serial pe care l-ai văzut luna aceasta, ci acelea în care ai fost fericit, ai zâmbit larg, ai vizitat locuri noi, te-ai îndrăgostit de oamenii locului şi de obiceiurile lor. Dacă ai avea posibilitatea să faci toate aceste lucruri, ai profita? Cu siguranţă, îţi spui. Atunci ce mai aştepți? Înarmează-te cu dorinţe, voie bună şi pregăteşte-te pentru cea mai frumoasă vară din viaţa ta! Nu îţi fie teamă de schimbare, ea este benefică, te ajută să creşti şi să vezi lumea cu alţi ochi. Nu îţi fie teamă că vei fi singur, toţi vor fi la fel ca tine, temători, debusolaţi într-o gară din Europa, cu 10 bătăi în plus pe minut, dar tocmai împărtăşirea aceleaşi experienţe vă va aduce unul mai aproape de celălalt. Adu-ţi aminte de câte ori ai invidiat păsările pentru libertatea lor de mişcare, capacitatea lor de a fi mereu în alt loc. Pe tine ce te opreşte? Într-o lume în care posibilitatea călătoriei dintr-o ţară în alta, de pe un continent pe altul nu mai este un tabu, ceva destinat doar unei anumite categorii sociale, este păcat să nu profiţi. Nu poţi să spui că ţi-ai găsit menirea pe lumea asta, până nu ai mai multe variante, până când nu ai găsit acel loc care să-ţi pară perfect, spre care să năzuieşti sau care din contră să te facă să fii împlinit de locul care acum reprezintă casa ta.

BEST (Board of European Students of Technology), este o organizaţie internaţională, nonprofit, în continuă creştere. Încă din anul 1989, BEST oferă studenţilor din toată Europa posibilitatea de a ajunge la o mai bună înţelegere a culturilor şi a societăţilor pentru a-şi dezvolta capacitatea de a lucra în diverse medii culturale. Grupul Local BEST Cluj-Napoca(1995), este format din voluntari din cadrul Universităţii Tehnice din Cluj-Napoca( și nu numai) , un grup de tineri entuziaşti, deschişi către diversitate, cu viziuni îndrăzneţe. Scopul nostru este de a oferi toate condiţiile pentru dezvoltare personală şi folosirea abilităţilor la potenţial maxim, încurajând fiecare student să participe la evenimente inovative, provocatoare cum ar fi: cursuri de sezon, traininguri, workshop-uri, evenimente de carieră, competiţii inginereşti, etc. Prin implicarea în activităţile noastre internaţionale studenţii au ocazia să îşi mărească experienţa, să îşi formeze noi prietenii, toate acestea într-un mediu destins şi plin de activităţi sociale.

Oricare ţi-ar fi motivele eu te îndemn să dai Apply, să îţi formezi propria ta părere despre lumea asta mare în care trăim cu toţi, să descoperi file noi din marea carte a vieţii şi să iţi deschizi apetitul pentru călătorit, descoperire şi explorare.

Testimoniale “Prima dată am aplicat la un curs de vară în Maribor, Slovenia. Era mai mult o acțiune de “hai să văd ce-i asta, oricum n-am ce face”. Ce-a ieșit: una din cele mai faine experiențe trăite vreodată. Am vizitat locuri superbe de care nici nu știam că există, am construit rachete propulsate de apă și aer și am descoperit oameni WOW. Este surprinzător cum în 12 zile o gașca de străini din toată Europa se transformă într-un grup de prieteni care parcă se știu de ani buni.”

CLUJ-NAPOCA

Lorant Menehart

“Cursurile de sezon reprezintă o modalitate foarte ieftină de a călători și de a descoperi o altă țară, și un alt mod de lucru. În Varșovia, am avut ocazia să cunosc niște oameni minunați, veseli, energici și foarte organizați. Încă de cand ne-au așteptat la gară, am fost întâmpinați cu entuziasm și bunădispoziție!”

Fii la curent cu toate proiectele BEST şi oportunităţile de practică, internship şi angajare.

Anamaria Buda

“Am învățat multe pe plan academic în urma cursurilor, dar cel mai mult am învatat de la oamenii pe care i-am întâlnit acolo, iar energia pe care ți-o transmite un acest gen de eveniment este extraordinară, dându-ți o poftă de călătorit de nesăturat.” Oana Rus Andrei Popa

“Despre cursul din Lviv, Ucraina: Și chiar dacă drumul e lung, și trenu-i murdar, și mori de cald, și poate n-ai însoțitor, știi că mergi la eveniment BEST și asta te motivează. Odată trecut de graniță, am înteles cum e să iei Cola la 2 L cu 3.5 lei și am descoperit borșul ucrainean în toate culorile. Îmi doresc să mai particip la City Rally-uri prin mai știu eu ce colț al Europei, sau să fac te miri ce pe la Pub Crawling sau să cânt până nu mai pot la Cantus-uri! Iar dacă nu știi exact cu ce se mănâncă toate astea, uite un motiv în plus să aplici!”

Scrisoarea de motivare Pentru orice curs vă decideţi să aplicaţi, trebuie să ştiţi că este necesară o scrisoare de motivare, în funcţie de care Grupurile Locale BEST din toată Europa îşi vor selecta participanţii. Criteriile de selecţie variază de la un grup la altul, dar scrisoarea de motivare are cu siguranţă cea mai mare pondere în alegerea participanţilor. Nu există o reţetă perfectă, datorită multitudinii de criterii, dar cu siguranţă organizatorii vor vrea să ştie: Cine eşti? Care îţi sunt studiile, pasiunile, care sunt cunoştinţele tale în domeniul cursului şi cum îţi place să te distrezi. Prezentarea ta nu trebuie să fie lungă, dar să cuprindă informaţii relevante despre preocupările tale, şi despre cum ai putea contribui tu la formarea unui grup de participanţi diversificat şi receptiv. De asemenea, nu uita că persoanele care selectează participanţii sunt studenţi ca şi tine. Convinge-i că eşti destul de interesant şi amuzant încât să vrea să te vadă şi pe viu. O mică doză de ciudăţenie și de mister nu strică! De ce ai ales cursul acesta? Citeşte cu atenţie descrierea cursului şi ai grijă, în cazul în care aplici la mai multe cursuri să nu le încurci. Grupurile BEST vor fi curioase să audă motivarea ta şi de multe ori aceasta cântăreşte cel mai mult în decizia lor. Scrie motive specifice! Aşa vor şti că scrisoarea ta nu e una standard cu care aplici la toate cursurile şi interesul tău e real! De ce ai ales oraşul/ţara aceasta? Vrei sau nu, cei care vor face selecţia, întotdeauna se vor simţi puţin gâdilaţi în orgoliu dacă le dai şi un motiv legat de ţara lor pentru care vrei să mergi acolo! Nu insista însă prea mult căci există riscul să dai impresia că mergi acolo ca turist şi cursurile cad pe locul doi. Dacă la aceste informaţii adaugi şi puţină originalitate în formulare, cu siguranţă că vei avea o şansă în plus. Oricine apreciază simţul umorului şi creativitatea aşa că nu ezita să le foloseşti când ai ocazia. Pe langă scrisoarea de intenţie, la unele cursuri trebuie sa răspunzi si la câteva întrebări (de regulă 3), prin care organizatorii vor să îţi testeze creativitatea. Fii cât mai original când răspunzi la aceste întrebări! Gândeşte-te la nişte răspunsuri pe care niciun alt aplicant nu le poate da înafară de tine! Acum nu mai rămâne decât să aplici! Fă-ţi curaj, apucă-te de scris şi îţi poţi petrece vara cum nici nu ai îndrăznit să speri. Dacă ai fost acceptat la curs, vei fi contactat de către echipa BEST Cluj. Rezervă-ţi din timp bilete pentru destinaţia aleasă şi pregăteşte-ți bagajele! Dacă ai nevoie de ajutor cu scrisoarea de aplicare, o poți trimite printr-un mail si noi iți dăm feedback pentru ca tu să știi ce trebuie îmbunătățit (dacă e cazul). Astfel vei avea șanse mai mari de a fi acceptat la cursuri! Adresa noastra e cursuri@bestcj.ro
