Work and studies – mission impossible? Definitely not!
Every year, the Transcom Lithuania team engages in an interesting, informative and usually highly entertaining talent search. This spring was no exception - we searched for talents in the Career days of the 7 biggest universities in Vilnius and Kaunas, where we had an opportunity to chat with nearly 600 students.
It isn’t surprising at all that one of the most important things for students is the ability to manage both their studies and work. Many believed that this was a mission impossible and therefore were surprised and happy to see that at Transcom, that’s not an issue at all. Our current employees, who are students themselves, joined our HR team at the event to share their experiences of how easy it actually is to combine studies with working at Transcom. Their enthusiasm, real-life stories and fun facts prove that not only is Transcom a friendly and informal organization, but it also makes a lot of effort to be as flexible as possible and allow students to combine work with studies.
It gets better - our chats with students not only proved that working and studying is not impossible, but it also showed that the first job doesn’t have to be a temp job. Over 80% of our managers have been promoted internally and most of them started working while studying! All in all, this spring’s talent search was very fruitful - not only did we manage to debunk a couple of myths regarding work and studies, but some of the new talents we spoke to have already joined our team. So is working while studying a mission impossible? At Transcom it’s definitely not!
