AIESEC Tartus juhatus 16/17 – Teet

Sep 20
Teet, 20 Tartu Ülikool, saksa keel ja kirjandus AIESEC Tartus, väljaminevad projektid Mis filmi pealkiri sobiks kirjeldama sinu elu? Arvan, et „Gone with the wind“ kirjeldab mind hästi. Olen teatud mõttes selline vaba ja vahest väga udu hing. Kelleks sa tahtsid väiksena saada? Olen suhteliselt kindel, et tahtsin kas presidendiks või kuningaks saada. Olin noorelt juba ambitsioonikas ning võimujanuline. Mida sa soovitaksid inimestele, kes on esimest korda juhipositsioonil? Fancy ametikoha nimetus on küll tore ja

AIESEC Tartus juhatus 16/17 – Ina

Sep 14
Ina, 22 Tartu Ülikool, majandus AIESEC Tartus, personalijuht Mis filmi pealkiri sobiks kirjeldama sinu elu? Kuna suur osa elust on veel ees, siis ei tahaks ennustada. Seni aga “Finding Nemo”, kus tõlgendan Nemo’t kui mingit eesmärki, mis on ajas muutuv. Kusjuures otsing ise on mõnes mõttes põnevam, kui ta leidmine. Kelleks sa tahtsid väiksena saada? Balletitantsijaks, sest mulle lihtsalt meeldis mööda tuba ringi lennelda! Mida sa soovitaksid inimestele, kes on esimest korda juhipositsioonil? Õpi oma meeskonnaliikmeid tundma.

AIESEC Tartus juhatus 16/17 – Katharina

Sep 06
Katharina, 22 Tartu Ülikool, rahvusvahelised suhted AIESEC Tartus, sotsiaalprojektid Mis filmi pealkiri sobiks kirjeldama sinu elu? “The Pursuit of Happiness” või “It’s Complicated”. Tegelikult vist pole veel sellise pealkirjaga filmi olemas. Äkki ma ise teen kunagi dokfilmi. Kelleks sa tahtsid väiksena saada?  Alguses ma tahtsin saada printsessiks, siis arstiks, kokaks, juuksuriks ja lõpuks vist lihtsalt “rikkaks ärinaiseks”. Iga nädal puhusid uued tuuled. Mida sa soovitaksid inimestele, kes on esimest korda juhipositsioonil?  Ma soovitan kõik olulised otsused enda

AIESEC Tartus juhatus 16/17 – Laura

Aug 22
Laura, 21 Tartu Ülikool, kommunikatsioon AIESEC Tartus, ülikooli suhted ja finants Mis filmi pealkiri sobiks kirjeldama sinu elu? „Into the Wild“ on tore sõnadekombinatsioon. Tunnen, et olen terve elu harjunud olema looduse lähedal ning suures linnas liiga kaua viibimine mõjub mu jaoks muserdavalt. Kelleks sa tahtsid väiksena saada?  Tantsijaks, kuid see polnud reaalne, sest ma pole kordagi elus tegelenud tantsimisega, kui välja arvata kooli kehalise tunnid, peod ja kodus peegli ees. Mida sa soovitaksid inimestele,

6 weeks of volunteering experience in Hungary

May 01
Kristiine Kukk – Hungary Duration of project:  6 weeks Type of Exchange:  Voluntary work in youth camps See oli esimese ülikooli aasta järel, kui ma leidsin, et Eesti on minu jaoks liiga kitsas ja maailm kutsub. Leidsingi ennast siis juba juuni kuus Ungaris. Kuigi mu projekt toimus Budapestist eemal, suuruselt neljandas linnas Miskolcis, veetsin ma algul lõbusalt aega pealinnas. Minu jaoks oli vabatahtlikuks minemine võimalus maailma näha – seega alustasin juba Budapestis oma kultuurilist seiklust, kus täna kohalikule AIESECile

6 weeks of volunteering experience in Mauritius

Mar 08
Kertu Liis Krigul – Mauritius Duration of project:  6 weeks Type of Exchange:  Voluntary work to raise awareness of  stray dogs   It’s rather unusual that by April I still have not decided what to do with my summer… which was the case last year. Suddenly an opportunity popped up in Facebook to volunteer abroad. It was a thing I always wanted to do – travel far and learn the most about local community while giving something back.

Management Internship for 8 months in China
