Hi! I am Aušrinė Paukštytė, a graduate from Marijampole University of Applied Sciences, where I studied bachelor degree in tourism management. At the moment, I live and work in Job Trust agency in Thessaloniki, known also as the Northern capital of Greece. I love my life here, I love the sun and the sea, and I love to travel, for which my present career gives a lot of opportunities.
The agency organizes placements and apprenticeships for students from all over Europe, coming to work in many chain hotels and restaurants in the Greek mainland and islands’ resorts. I just love my job! And of course I can’t forget that I started here as an apprentice myself, doing my work placement as a student of Marijampole University of Applied sciences. I started from a 3 month placement in Crete Island, which is a wonderful opportunity- you get a grant for what you do, learn and get a salary! After that I went to work in Greece for the next three summers in line and here I am!
I want to encourage all students from my university- just grab the opportunity Erasmus+ programme offers you, and you can start a wonderful career.
“Many thanks to my Alma Mater- Marijampole University of Applied sciences for my new horizons. If not for this university and later the possibly of a work placement abroad, I wouldn’t be able to enjoy the wonderful life in the sunny and colorful Greece!”
