Vladimir, 23, graduate: « For me, this project was an opportunity to be 100% realized and surrounded by like-minded people! During the time spent on the project, a huge transformation happened to me: both personally and professionally. As it turned out, I am a real workaholic and a fan of big politics and still have good communication skills. Thanks to new acquaintances on this project among young politicians like me, I received several interesting job offers. Now, I understand why personal communication and personal acquaintance are so important in the field of politics. I have never considered myself very sociable since graduating from university, and I was looking for a job for a long time. At the moment, I can state with full confidence that connections have expanded my opportunities. Indeed, now I feel confident enough. I thought the internet was the future. Now I understand that the Internet is a great way to connect with people and make even more friends, but in no case should it replace face-to-face communication. I was glad to meet the organizers, I look forward to the next projects! And wish me luck, I have two more interviews ahead of me! »
