Regarding this issue, the journalists present said that the SIGIT platform is a good option to maintain the link with the house of studies and thus have the opportunity to follow up the requirements of the different companies dedicated to communications, whether for job positions and professional or observation practices. This was evidenced by the editor of Diario El Día, Eleazar Garviso, who stressed that this platform will be of great help for the search of professionals and the follow-up that is required at the time of internship requests.
This first meeting gives the initial kickoff for upcoming activities, which for the participants themselves, was an instance not only of work and updating, but also of camaraderie and contact networks, emphasizing that these meetings are always important in the professional practice.
