On April 21, InText Company and Oleg Rudavin, ProZ.com moderator for the CIS, held two seminars for the students of National Mining Academy and Dnepropetrovsk National University named after O. Gonchar. The seminars highlighted the specifics of Internet freelancing for translators, the benefits of this kind of activity and the opportunity of additional earnings for every graduate and even senior student with required professional skills.
One of the company objectives was to involve new translators in freelance and in-house work. Anna Braslavskaya, Human Resources Manager, offered the students to apply for a translator job on competitive basis and informed them of the chance to take training for beginners.
The seminar participants received professional advice and answers to their questions. The organizers of the seminar noted that the discussed topic attracted considerable interest among the students.
In the future, InText and Oleg Rudavin plan to continue the cooperation and arrange joint events in order to support the young generation of translators in Ukraine and provide them with valuable information on innovative technologies, requirements and opportunities of the translation market.
