YOURJOB - Success story of internship- Viti
Your Job project of Caritas Kosova despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic is still the right choice for young people for employment. Along with many young people who have been beneficiaries of the Your Job project for internships, I will single out Gentiana Selimi from Vitia.
Gentiana had just finished high school when she knocked on our office, she had graduated in times of pandemic and felt upset, confused, and didn’t know where to orient. She also felt obliged to take care of her family, due to the pandemic and financial situation she could not continue her university studies and felt the need to be employed and gain knowledge for a profession. After many counseling and career guidance meetings, we managed to get to know Gentiana better, to know her needs and motivation... then we proposed the business "P.P.Z Valdrini" in which she would have the opportunity to develop the profession of tailoring, after meeting with the business we reached another cooperation agreement resulting in the signing of a four-month internship contract for Gentiana.
After a four-month period, Gentiana managed to acquire her skills and get employed in that business, now Gentiana continues her regular work as a tailor in the business "P.P.Z Valdrini". Gentiana is grateful for the opportunity offered and encourages other young people to take advantage of the opportunities offered by Your Job project, "If you did not offer me guidance and support I would still be unemployed, without continuing my studies and I would still be dependent on my family." said Gentiana during the job evaluation visit by the Guidance Counsellor.
We encourage the youth to contact us so that we can help them build the youth for the future in employment and make a change here in Kosovo.
