Thank you Aino for sharing your success story with us! We are so glad that you joined our community and got to show your skills. This is a real life example of how much we can do #together. A big thanks to “Duunista Toimeen” (helping young people into work) and Taru for all your hard work that gave a chance to this story. Thank you also to Kouvola Liquorice for being bold and giving a chance to new young workers. When we give young people the chance to show their abilities, miracles can happen. Even one gig can pave the path to success!
“I got my first gig as a tester for the Work Pilots application though the “Duunista toimeen” project. After this, I started actively following the application and managed to get a few hour gig from Kouvola Liquorice. This lead to more gigs from them, after which they wanted to offer me a more permanent place. Currently I take care of the Kouvola Liquorice factory outlet.
The outlet is in the same building as Kouvola’s Filmtown and after a few months, I also got work there as a sales person. The Work Pilots app gave me an excellent start to work life and through it I have gotten a lot of work experience that is sure to help me in the future!”
