To answer that, we should talk about two major changes first: new generation has totally different expectations to work compared to 10 y ago and the essence of work has changed in the companies as well.
We hear people talking about generation Y and what will happen if those “aliens“ enter the labor market :)
But in reality they have been in the labor market for 15 years.
There has been a debate in media about experience versus motivation, which is more important when recruiting people for entry-level positions. We strongly feel that highly motivated people with positive attitude and desire to learn, will do better. And if you read Koit´s story, you will see why :) Thank you Koit,
I am a student of the Mechanical school. After the courses I had more than two months of summer holidays.
That is why I decided to earn some extra money. Summer is a pleasant time, so I didn’t want to have a full time job. My friend advised me to take a chance at GoWorkaBit.
When media writes about startups it’s usually about who raised investment or won some hot prizes (we have been actually mentioned in both categories too). Not so often we can read about one startup taking the time to do something impressive for another.
Apply for a job only when you are 100% sure of your ability to go to work.
Because if you are chosen and you can´t show up for work, some other candidate will lose a chance to work a bit. In addition you will make a mess for company because they need to find replacement very fast.
