Filling in our assessment form – If you find a job please let us know as soon as possible as it would be good to have feedback on our services. Furthermore, once you have a chance, please fill out our assessment form.
WHAT WE DO:
Actively searching for jobs –Once we receive your CV/resume, it is filed appropriately and sent to our partners (HR companies, key employers, successful repatriates) when we find a position meets your profile. When there is a suitable position they will contact you directly, though it would also be a great option for you to have your cover letter and CV/resume mailed with the integration manager CC’d for best results. This allows us to learn about your preferred positions and companies as well, while giving us a chance to follow up with said companies.
Keeping you informed – we organize sector-oriented job fairs in cooperation with industry unions, and companies. We also email you with any other opportunities, as well as linking you directly, if not directly organized by us, through our calendar. If you are interested in specialized training/courses (Eastern Armenian/Russian, professional training), please inform us directly.
Assisting after you are employed - If you have questions related to labor relations in the company or organization you are employed in, do not hesitate to contact us; we will try to provide you with support. To know your rights about doing work in Armenia, you can visit employment in Armenia
Offering a Network - One of the major roles we have in your move is the provision of a network of like-minded people who understand your decision and your struggles, along with your sheer joy. You need never feel alone in your move.
Note: If you have the opportunity to keep your income sources within the countries you are moving from, it would be wise to do so until you can get back on your feet. Cost of living in Armenia is low, and an outside salary would keep you afloat for a good while.
