It is our great pleasure to inform you that EYP Armenia announces June 2014 a month of I`MPLOYED – Job Interview Simulation Sessions (JISS)!

Given the high rate of youth unemployment in Armenia and willing to have its contribution to reducing youth unemployment and boosting the entry of qualified youth into the job market, EYP Armenia comes up with this first-in-its-type initiative.

JISS will not be in a format of a training or a workshop where participants are taught how to write a successful CV or how to present oneself in a job interview, but will rather create a platform to get practical skills through the actual simulation of the job interview procedure, where all the registered participants will undertake job interviews by people who have vast experience in the field of application.
