Martynas: My name is Martynas Barkauskas, I am from Lithuania, I am 19. I work at the company « A healthy idea » which is a part of Arvi group, a parent company in charge of the company’s corporate social responsibility image.
Actually I didn’t expect to find a job so quickly this year. But because I spent the last few summers working,
I had some contacts at the youth work office. They invited me to attend a seminar where business people from Marijampole presented their firms. There I made contacts and later in the summer I wrote to a few of them.
One of them offered me a job. I organise events, I write projects, I prepare press releases and I do other similar work. I am free and I can work
at home or wherever I want. What’s important is to do the job.
I think that the Job Centre in Lithuania is the institution that can really help you find a job.
Public Employment Services provide:
- Information and advice to young people on jobs.
- Job fairs for young people to meet the SMEs.
- Workshop for CV writing and preparation for jobs interviews.
Martynas : There I gained knowledge on how to communicate with businessmen and even how to start my own business.
