Congratulations to Mariia from Ukraine on landing a job offer after her Erasmus internship as a payment specialist! 

Mariia was responsible for coordinating payments, controlling company orders, invoicing partners, and communicating with various departments. This hands-on experience allowed her to gain practical knowledge of financial services. No doubt her persistence in learning and excellent work were rewarded with a job offer.

Mariia highlights the support she received from her mentor and colleagues. “It was incredible and the best support I've ever had across my work experience. My mentor did a great job introducing me to the system of the renting sector and how it works everything inside. I was accepted to ask anything I needed, I felt total support and gentle caring from all my colleagues and managers. It was a warm period of effective and fast negotiation between departments, who did care about each other, so I felt a nice and relaxed atmosphere in the company. I was learning everything rapidly thanks to my mentor and his support throughout my internship period.”

 

Recently, our internship program in Slovakia hosted a fun event for our talented interns. It was a quiz night called "Quiz, prosim" ("Quiz, please" in Slovak).

Here's what made this event even more special: the teams were created by artificial intelligence! That's right, with a help of AI system we strategically matched interns who didn't interact much in their daily routine. This inventive approach was aimed at breaking down barriers and encouraging interns to make new friendships and get to know each other better.

Jeremy, a young man from France, decided to change his career after years of experience in real estate. It was then that he decided that an internship in Bratislava could be the perfect opportunity to open up new perspectives. We found him an internship as a Customer Service for the French market in a Slovak branch of a global company that provides centralised, efficient and cost effective financial accounting and transaction services for geographically diverse clients across the world.

 

Today we want to share with you our accomplishments. We'd love to tell you a bit more about where the project for Ukrainians came from, how it became possible, and the progress we've made over the years. Thanks to the possibility of transferring part of our EU grant (for our KA 131 projects) to supporting incoming students from Ukraine after the outbreak of full-scale war in 2022 on the territory of this country, we decided to use this opportunity and create a unique project to help students from Ukrainian Universities to come for the Erasmus+ internships in Slovakia.

Within our initiative, WorkSpace Europe helps foreign students from abroad to come for Erasmus+ internships in Slovakia and place them into host companies in different sectors www.placementslovakia.com. Thanks to the possibility of transferring part of our EU grant (for our KA 131 projects) to supporting incoming students from Ukraine, we decided to use this opportunity and created a unique project to help students from Ukrainian Universities to come for the Erasmus+ internships in Slovakia. We provide Ukrainian students with our full administrative and practical support, pay them the EU grant, and place them in our partner companies in Slovakia to do their Erasmus+ internships.

 

Since the start in 2022, we have hosted over 40 students and have many successful stories about helping them move forward in their lives and careers.  Here you can read their stories here. Until we can we will do our maximum effort to search new Ukrainian Universities for partnerships to allow as many Ukrainian students as possible to join this unique project.
