During the final module of the training “Learn, Think and Act!”, the 13th generation of young participants from all parts of BiH learned about being competitive on the labour market. They showed that they are willing and ready to put their best foot forward on the labour market, but are aware that they lack the knowledge and skills to do it.
This module helped them learn more about the BiH labour market, the supply and demand. They discussed their expectations of the labour market, and what they themselves can offer. They worked on improving their CV and writing cover letters.
They learned about the differences between a CV and a cover letter, and the importance of presenting themselves in a way that lets employers know about their abilities.
The Coffee Time With… guest during this module was Bojan Janković Information and Coordination Officer of the OSCE Mission to BiH and the Head of the OSCE Youth Advisory Group. He talked to the participants about creating opportunities for having a better position on the labour market, and about his own professional path and the persistence that is crucial for every youth leader.
