Opis

American Councils for International Education u BiH vas poziva da se prijavite na Women's STEP program ukoliko je vaše trenutno boravište u Banjoj Luci ili Sarajevu. Women's STEP, odnosno "Women's Student Training and Empowerment Program (STEP)", je besplatan program financiran od strane grantom Ministarstva vanjskih poslova SAD čiji je cilj obuka studentica i sticanje radnog iskustva. Women's STEP nudi priliku učesnicama da se upoznaju sa tržištem rada u Bosni i Hercegovini i dobiju priliku da steknu radno iskustvo i vještine koje će im biti potrebne kako bi bile uspješne u svakom budućem traženju posla.

Uslov za prijavu je da aplikanti trenutno borave u Banjoj Luci ili Sarajevu, te da su ženskog spola, pošto je program namijenjen isključivo djevojkama/ženama, a učesnice će obavljati praksu u ova dva grada.

Kroz obuku i praksu (radno iskustvo) koje će im biti omogućeno kroz Women's STEP, učesnice će naučiti kako da se prilagode zahtjevima tržišta rada i prepoznaju svoje slabosti i snage.

Kroz Women's STEP učesnice će dobiti sljedeće vještine:

  • Pisanje CV-a i motivacionog pisma;
  • Kako ispuniti aplikaciju za posao;
  • Osnovne IT vještine i alati potrebni na modernom tržištu;
  • Komunikacija, javni govor i držanje prezentacija;
  • Osnovni maniri u modernom poslovnom svijetu;
  • Kako briljirati na svakom intervju-u.

Četrdeset odabranih učesnica će proći trodnevni trening u Banjoj Luci, tokom kojeg će im biti obezbijeđen smještaj i hrana, dok će deset učesnica iz ove grupe biti izabrane od strane ureda American Councils u BiH da pronađu kompaniju/nevladinu organizaciju u kojoj će steći tromjesečnu praksu. Tokom prakse, učesnice će dobivati 100$ mjesečno, kako bi pokrile troškove prijevoza i druge svakodnevne troškove koje mogu nastati.

Nakon završetka treninga koje će se održati u Banjoj Luci, svih 40 učesnica su dužne održati "peer to peer" treninge kako bi prenijele iskustvo koje su stekle tokom treninga i time pomogle drugim mladim osobama u svojim zajednicama. Women's STEP program će pomoći učesnicama da održe ove treninge u vidu novčane podrške.

  • Ženskog ste spola;
  • Studirate društvene nauke;

Description

American Councils for International Education BiH is inviting all interested female university students with current residency in Banja Luka or Sarajevo to apply to the Women's STEP program. The Women's STEP, or Women's Student Training and Empowerment Program financed by a grant from the United States Department of State, is a free program aimed at educating female students in helping them gain their first work experience in BiH. Women's STEP offers participants with the opportunity to get acquainted with the labor market in Bosnia and Herzegovina and gain work experience and skills that they will need to be successful in any future job search. Interested candidates must currently reside in Banja Luka or Sarajevo as selected participants will do their internship in these two cities. Eligible applicants must also be female as the program is intended exclusively for female university students.

During the internship, participants will receive $100 per month to cover transportation and other day-to-day expenses.
