Why?

Let’s take a recently graduated jobseeker or employee as an example, who, although possesses adequate professional qualifications, lacks insight or proper information related to the sector. As a result, this person applies for positions that do not suit him / her, which will not yield him / her a long-term career opportunity.

Let’s take a student pursuing Slavic studies as an example, who, for some reason wishes to find a job outside of her field during her university studies or after graduation. In the absence of proper information, this jobseeker may avoid perfectly fitting job opportunities present in service centres. There are jobs in service centres, where even in the absence of an economics or business degree, jobseekers can enter a completely different field, such as finance, with the appropriate language skills.
