The Znanje na djelu Foundation has successfully completed the KARIJEROTEKA 2020/2021 program at the end of May. It all started in October 2020 in response to the crisis caused by the pandemic that made it no longer possible to run live programs. This new online program for children and young people is a series of interviews with stimulating professionals from different industries and areas who answered the questions “What is the most interesting aspect of your job? How did your career develop? What skills are key in your business? What advice would you give to a 16-year-old yourself?”
In the first but very successful season, we had 17 speakers and made 14 webinars. We were followed by more than 550 students from 68 schools and 30 cities. We also had visitors from outside Croatia, from Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia. The result of the program is 14 videos of the Karijeroteka program which remain as permanent content for children and youth, but also parents and teachers who are interested in career development in Croatia.
Matija Gracin from the company Rimac automobili spoke about the importance of technical education and the ability to “do something with your own hands”. Doctor Tina Dušek stated: “I never thought about leaving Croatia because the job of a doctor, wherever they did it, is essentially the same.” Ivana Marasović, humanitarian, explained how to find satisfaction in volunteer work. We then had a young psychologist Jelena Abramović employed in human resources of the company Bosch Hrvatska, chemical technologist Marin Ganjta from the company ZOV. There was also the award-winning director Dana Budisavljević and geologist Jelena Parlove, and even Siniša Jembrih, the commander of the Zagreb Fire Brigade, came to visit us. You can see all the missed Career Libraries with miners, tourist guides, designers, and gamers on our Karijero-videoteka platform.
The new season of Karijeroteka begins in September 2021, and as always feel free to contact us with suggestions and inquiries at firstname.lastname@example.org.
