FIRST “Career Expo 2013”

It gives us great pleasure to inform you that under the motto “Get Connected”, the Youth Council of the U.S. Embassy is organizing a premiere one-day Career Expo[1] on October 9, 2013 from 10:00am to 6:00pm in “Mala Stanica”, Skopje. The Career Expo  was conceived out of a need for increased mediation, transparent information, and higher motivation among the youth labor force.

The U.S. Embassy in Skopje is the main supporter and implementing partner of the aforementioned project which entails motivational speeches by successful representatives from the diplomatic missions, business sector, and civil society sector in Macedonia followed by a career/volunteer fair where business companies, NGOs, youth organizations, private high schools, and universities will present their job/internships, volunteering, and training opportunities for young attendees from diverse educational and professional profiles.

For this purpose we issue this call for all interested youth organizations and organizations for youth which offer volunteering possibilities for the youth, and training on various skills to help the personal and professional development of the youth labor force.

During the course of the career/volunteer fair, hosted will be also workshops of a duration of no more than 45 minutes each, from 15:00-18:00, which should include one of the following concepts:

  1. Presentation of the organization and its volunteering opportunities
  2. Brief training session on skills you consider the youth needs the most or can find it useful in their future job search.

We hereby invite all interested youth and civil society organizations working on youth issues to submit a fully completed APPLICATION FORM FOR WORKSHOPS and send it to ycusmac@gmail.com no later than September 28, 2013. All organizations will be informed on the selection outcome and communicated more details on October 2, 2013.
