I spent three years working on the international education website Unistudy, where I hosted over 30 webinars covering topics such as motivational letters, recommendations, and cover letters. Through these webinars, I assisted countless future applicants in accurately describing their achievements and previous experiences.

Currently, I am employed at the International Cooperation Department, Marketing Unit in VMU.

I have been a guest speaker at various events discussing the job-searching process and strategies in both Ukraine and Lithuania: “Get a job in Lithuania: how?”, “My Career 2022: What Does the Employer Expect?” and others. I am eager to share my knowledge and experiences with you.
