The Jobs Gateway in South Eastern Europe CoP is honored to host Gurpriya Bhatia and Eric Burger from Giant’s Shoulder and Dr. Alexandra Avdeenko from the University of Mannheim to present on the Prilike (“opportunities”) initiative in Montenegro. In collaboration with UNICEF Montenegro, the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Labor, Bhatia and Burger designed and implemented the Prilike initiative with 500 high school students and 50 companies. Within the framework, students visited companies operating in telecommunication, energy, finance, services, trade and IT sectors to gain insight on their desired professions and the current labor market.
Dr. Avdeenko will discuss the main findings of the independent evaluation she led with the University of Mannheim, in particular how students reported a greater understanding of their career options and a more optimistic approach to employment opportunities.
The presentation will be followed by a discussion in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, and Serbia.
The video conference connections will be available at the following World Bank offices: Belgrade IFC (4-401), Podgorica (2-60), Prishtina (2-07), Sarajevo (16-10), Skopje (0-03), Tirana IFC (8-801), Vienna (17-6), and Washington, D.C.
