27 years old Emo Daneliani, a resident of Gori, has recently started her job as a registrar at the Hospital “Iavnana”.
Before getting a job, Emo studied nursing. She was actively looking for a job when she learnt about the Job Fair planned by the Education Development and Employment Center (EDEC) in Gori. She decided to register for the Fair. In response, the career consultants of the Employment Center of EDEC contacted and offered her career development services. The consultants assisted the young woman in writing a CV and provided consultation about job interview techniques in order to prepare her for the Job Fair in advance.
As a result, Emo received several job offers at the Fair. Besides, she got acquainted with other vacancies recommended by the Employment Center. Eventually, considering her prior education and aspirations, the young woman decided to accept the offer of the hospital located in Gori. At present, she keeps working hard in order to gain experience and achieve more.
The Job Fair was held by EDEC together with partner organizations on May 20, 2021 in Gori. The event was organized within the framework of the EU-funded project “Learn for Employment”. 38 companies operating in Shida Kartli presented more than 330 vacancies to the 322 job seekers at the Fair.
The EU-funded project “Learn, Exercise, Achieve, Receive, Network for Employment! (LEARN for Employment!)“ is implemented by the Education Development and Employment Center (EDEC), the Telavi Education Development and Employment Center (TEDEC), the Employment Agency of the Autonomous Region of Adjara (EAARA), Abkhazintercont (AIC) and the Guria Youth Resource Center (GYRC).
The project implemented in six regions of Georgia – Imereti, Guria, Racha-Lechkhumi, Adjara, Shida Kartli and Kakheti – aims to to promote an efficient transition model from education to the labour market largely supporting increased employment, social integration and decreased poverty and vulnerability levels.
