HeadHunter holds Career week for schoolchildren

HeadHunter holds Career week for schoolchildren

The International Children’s Centre Artek in Crimea has for the second year in a row hosted the Career Week organized by the recruitment agency HeadHunter.

In an interview to The Yug Times, HH South Macroregion Director Irina Veretennikova has shared her impressions of the event.

“During the Career Week, we relate the situation at the labour market to the schoolchildren, tell them which jobs are most popular now and which will become sought-after in near future, when our listeners enter the labour market. Our aim is to teach children not to be afraid of their dreams and to listen to their desires when choosing a profession.”

Q.: Wasn’t it too early to speak about professional choice with 12- and 13-year-olds?

A.: This is the age when you should start talking about the kids’ future occupations, their interests and passions - that is, those things that may give rise to the understanding of their future job.

In the framework of our project, we give the teenagers a chance to ‘try on’ a certain profession. The kids are acting as directors, managers and marketing executives - and through these roles they are getting to the understanding of this or that occupation.

Q.: And what does our new generation look like?

A.: You may say it’s a paradox, but the 12-14-year-old kids are more independent than we used to be in their age. At the same time, they are more susceptible to other people’s opinions.

Q.: How much do the teenagers’ demands to their future job differ from those offered by an average employer?

A.: The kids believe that at the very beginning of their career they will be getting, say, in Krasnodar 30,000 to 40,000 rubles [a month] at least. In fact, they are wrong. No employer will be paying such money to any specialist without working experience.

A lot of teenagers think that when working, they will be patronized in the same way as they are patronized now - at school and in their families. The employers, however, reckon that if they hire a young specialist, he or she is already an independent and all-sufficient personality that doesn’t need constant care and attention.
