“I have been cooperating with EDEC for a long time. Since 2015 I have been involved in various projects. Initially, I got employed at the the Centers for Civic Engagement (CCE) with the help EDEC. I worked there for three months. As for the recent project, under which I was hired at the Hilton, I have been actively involved in trainings since the day I joined the project. Trainings were delivered in order to acquire skills necessary for providing technical support for the hotel. The internship phase was especially important to me as I received various practical skills and knowledge that I am actively using today. I am currently working in several areas. My responsibilities include performing tasks for both sales and commercial department,” – says Konstantine.
