ESN Zagreb enhances student’s skills and professional development

ESN Zagreb helds Skills and Employability Week whose aim is to broaden student’s horizons in the aspect of employability, work opportunities in various fields and gaining skills required for a successful future.

This December, from 13th to 17th,  Erasmus Student Network (ESN) Zagreb is organizing Skills and Employability Week - a three-day blended seminar on the importance of skills and experiences gained during volunteering inside the organization of more than 15 000 volunteers that are active in more than 40 countries all over Europe. 

We, as a part of the Erasmus Student Network, work on contributing to the field of skills and employability by training our volunteers in both hard and soft skills, equipping them with necessary knowledge and competences that will enable them to fulfill tasks both in ESN and at their future jobs which they have an opportunity to find through different platforms, such as ErasmusJobs and myESNcareer service. We also want to draw the attention of the student population to the fact that the activities that students engage in during their studies are crucial for their further development and career.

During Skills and Employability Week participants will have a chance to attend virtual interactive lectures, listen to panel discussions and also participate in workshops that will provide them with an insight on how to stand out from the crowd, write the best version of their CV and cover letter and emphasize their biggest qualities. They’ll also learn more about LinkedIn - personal branding and networking tool which is the most popular and prosperous platform among employers and employees. At last, through the InspireMe conference, our volunteers will have the opportunity to connect the dots of the path we go through from volunteering to the job market!

So, make sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram so you can keep up with this amazing Week where you’ll, for sure, have a chance to learn something that can help you in developing your skills necessary to stand out from the crowd!
