The Minister met with the students who have been registered for the students’ summer employment program “Summer Jobs”. The Minister discussed with them the goals of the program, which was initiated by the President of Georgia.
25,000 students have been registered for the vacancies offered by the Government of Georgia. Students chose their desired job out of 70 different professions. The students’ summer employment program will be implemented throughout Georgia from July 20 till August 20. The students will get salaries of 500 GEL.
The project, “Summer Job,” aims to facilitate students’ qualification enhancement and capacity development in the fields they are seeking for employment in the future. Additionally, earned income will aid them in funding their own education or enable them to save some for travel, vacations, etc…
The main purpose is to provide students the opportunity to make the most of their summer vocation. Student employment programs such as this are being introduced and developed in other Western Countries.
