My invaluable experience


Olena (20 years) is a student of Vinnytsia Institute of Economics and Social Sciences, under the Ukraina University shares her experience of job search with assistance from IDEA Center of NGO Parostok (Sprout) in Vinnytsya: "I was looking for a company, working where I could combine work with my study at the institute. However, it appears that employers do not really want to employ students through as they believe that students have irresponsible attitude to their duties and permanent problems with their studying. However, I decided not to give up and continued looking for a job. It was very difficult for me to do it on my own, so I asked the Centre IDEA of NGO Parostok (Sprout). At the trainings conducted by the IDEA Center, I was able to improve my skills in Microsoft Office, working with e-mails, studied in detail popular browsers, and learned to better understand the communications. Finally I got a job at a call-center. Now I have a flexible schedule that allows me to combine study and work. Through training at the Center IDEA, I realized that the difficulties exist always and everywhere, but by overcoming them we gain invaluable experience, become wiser, and begin to see life differently. Thank IDEA Project Powered by Microsoft YouthSpark for invaluable experience!"
