Unit 3.2. – Career Guidance Programme for foreigners living in Slovakia

Career Guidance Programme for foreigners living in Slovakia


Organisation that has implemented good practice: Mareena

Type of organisation: NGO

Level: national

Target group: foreigners living in Slovakia

Aim: to help integrate foreigners living in Slovakia into the labor market through group and individual meetings


During the group sessions, they create a space for foreigners to share their experience, needs, or fears regarding their previous work experiences. Besides, they explore their strengths, values and competencies. During the sessions, practical information about the labor market, networking and corporate environment is presented. Participants have the opportunity to strengthen their presentation and communication skills and enhance personal and career development. During the individual consultations, the organization staff focuses mainly on providing advice and assistance regarding their CVs and cover letter, job interview preparation and guidance regarding their future career path and plan. They also use various interactive methods and techniques – e.g., imagination or relaxation and introspection. After completing the program, participants can enroll in the follow-up Mentoring Programme which links them with the Slovak volunteers – professionals in the various fields. The project won the National Award of Career Guidance of Slovakia in 2019.
