Speed Dating with Employers

Speed dating with employers provides trainees with valuable insights and helps them secure sustainable employment.

In the final stage of the Facework Ukraine training program, after learning about job search strategies, CV and Job Interview preparation, our trainees met employers. We invited them to a speed dating session!

Speed dating with employers served as a powerful platform for trainees to gain a deeper understanding of what employers seek in candidates. This unique event provided our trainees with an opportunity to directly interact with employers, validate career goals, and explore pathways to sustainable employment.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to PRET FOUNDATION LTD, particularly Viktoria Bertics, General Manager at Pret A Manger, for sharing valuable information about Pret's Ukraine Employment Programme. This program offers access to employment opportunities through the Rising Stars program and provides avenues for further growth within the company for individuals who demonstrate exceptional dedication and performance.
