Savremena Gimnazija as part of the successfully completed

Students of Savremena Gimnazija used their free time during the summer vacation in the right way – they participated in the "LINK Summer Jobs" project. They point out that this was a great opportunity to enhance their CV, acquire work habits and develop skills that will be useful in building their careers, and they believe that this valuable experience will give them an advantage in finding a job in the future.

Students of Savremena Gimnazija gained their first work experience and earned their first salaries

A large number of high school students who applied, interested in gaining their first work experience, went through the process of applying, preselection, selection, and interview, all the way to the final hiring decision and the onboarding process, within the LINKgroup's business segments: Marketing, eduTV, HR, and Client Service, which simulated the actual process of getting a job.

During the two months of the project’s duration, the selected students were given the opportunity to independently participate in the implementation of various tasks within the ongoing projects and activities, with the support of business mentors, and thus contribute to the successful implementation of the tasks by sharing their ideas, creativity, and knowledge acquired at school.

"LINK Summer Jobs" – training young people to become future professionals

Encouraging young people to spend their free time productively during the summer vacation, through this project we provided them with the opportunity to feel what teamwork, business environment, and daily dynamics are and to gain their first work experience and well-deserved first salary. The enthusiasm they brought to the teams they were assigned to enriched the working atmosphere and, along with the positive energy they brought, additionally contributed to the productivity of already experienced colleagues.

With this project, by training young people, LINKgroup creates future professionals in numerous fields and lays the foundations for their career paths.

Here’s the video where you can see what their working day was like and what is their impression about it, as well as what LINKgroup representatives and their business mentors say about them:


Why are young people so important in the work culture?

Young people, that is, high school students, may lack concrete work experience, but they make up for it to a large extent with quality knowledge and skills.

Young people aged 15-19 represent emerging talents, whose development should be worked on in order to reach their full potential, and there is no better way to do this than to give them the opportunity to do so through specific tasks.

In this way, the LINK edu Alliance promotes the importance of young people in all aspects of modern business. For them, the most important thing is the enthusiasm to learn something new, which is a two-way process, because the idea of LEA education is to learn from each other while working together.

I am extremely pleased and proud to be the parent of a Savremena student. During my first encounter with the school management, when I asked about my child’s potential enrolment, I saw how much love, enthusiasm and professionalism you put in your work. I was impressed by your approach, ideas and methods. I couldn’t believe something like this existed in our country! It doesn’t take long to realise that this is a school you would recommend to everyone. Creativity, modern technology, top-quality education, and most of all, the humaneness that can be seen throughout the school, make it truly different and worthy of its name – Savremena Gimnazija. With such an approach, the success of this school and, consequently, our children’s success, is unavoidable. Congratulations! Jelena Đorđević, Andrija’s mum
