 Kira Gusakova | LCC Made Me Hungry for Knowledge

“The majority of companies values goal-oriented people. It’s not just about being ambitious, but also about having good planning skills, discipline, and consistent performance. It’s important to ask candidates about their hobbies.  When someone says that they love reading but then can’t remember the title of the last book they’ve read – the impression they make is rather clear.”

Natalia Matveeva | Never Give Up

ARV_2088 (2)LCC taught me to think. I remember one of the posters that LCC magazine had at the time. It said: Think outside of the box. I still use this advice every single day. In order to stress how important that learning is, I will quote Thomas A. Edison one last time: “Five percent of the people think; ten percent of the people think they think; and the other eighty-five percent would rather die than think.”

Anhelina Talkachova | The Only Belarusian

featured“I met many students and told them about the country I come from. None of those students had ever met a person from Belarus, so they were extremely excited! They were listening very attentively and asked many questions. I was really impressed with how interested they were in other cultures. And despite the fact that Korean and Belarusian cultures differ in some ways they were very respectful towards these differences. I was amazed how tolerant they were.”

Kristina Dulevich | Trying to Change Stigma against Kids 

“We aim to change attitudes as well as behaviors towards parenting, and children, in general. We promote strategies that focus on constructive instead of destructive attitudes. I am extremely happy to be a part of initiatives that aid social change. I found myself in the right place once I started doing not-for-profit work. I can’t imagine doing anything else. We teach parents that it’s not ok to hit your kids. Or we work with adolescents who are in contact with the law.”

Elvisi Sulozeqi | I Want to Encourage Students to Take Part in Exchange Programs

The social aspect of French society astonished me. featuredPeople there really pay attention to each other. For example, anybody can stop and talk to a homeless person and try to help him somehow. There is little difference between the rich and the poor, and the system is working in a way that everyone is happier. I think in general, it’s a happy nation. The French have this saying: “We take happiness very seriously.”

“For three years I worked at Swedbank until I went on maternity leave. As a mom I really wanted to do something special for my daughter.

While completing this course I realized that I didn’t just enjoy decorating; I also liked the social aspect of workshop training.

Mykola Sokolov | All My Belongings Are Carefully Packed in Two Pieces of Luggage

“Always have a plan and apply for the jobs with clear perspectives. You need to understand where you will be in 1, 2 and 3 years assuming you are doing your job well. If you start as a receptionist at a small company it would be very hard to get promoted and get further relevant experience even if you would be the best receptionist in the world. There simply might not be any opportunities.”
