7 things you won’t learn in school about clients & marketing

Youth unemployment continues to be the true social emergency of our country. Especially in the South, young people, although they do not lack preparation, find it difficult to apply and use all their skills in different markets. Discouraged and disappointed, they leave their homeland to live where their merit is rewarded and valued.

On 11th-12th of May, we have organized a dissemination session of “eSkills for Volunteers” in the frame of “Ready to START wake up” – start-up competition.

Our colleague, Gabriel Brezoiu disseminated the project results and started a debate on how the digital tools can improve the work of our organisations.
