I just found out that Lithuania is going to be very interesting (in all aspects).

Market analysis for internship

Today I was calling a few multinational companies in Poland to find out about the actual possibilities of doing my internship.

However, the first question which I got from the recruiter was: If you speak fluent Polish, you may have a chance, if not your chance is very very little if there is one.

Tis is the prove of the expected 'worst case scenario' that nothing but language counts as core priority. Everything such as special knowledge, working experience, interpersonal skills have a lower priority.

This means, I need to change my strategy away from multinationals to German companies conducting business in Poland or they just want me to take a challenge. We will see.

Good Morning everybody,

I have the pleasure to announce that exam period is starting up really well. Today we got to know that we passed Norwegian Exams with 1,3 as well as Polish with also 1,3 (92%).

Ps: Highest possible grade is 1.0

Let us hope it continues like this.

Place to live

Question of the day:

What actually makes Lithuanian students not want to live together with a German one?

Tests to assess a skill

I was just wondering what, different tests actually measure?

1. While being at school most of the tests do actually measure nothing but how well you are able to remember things, writing them down in the words the teacher told you.

2. While being at university test still mostly asses the skill how well you can remember things, rather few tests assess the ability to apply this knowledge.

3. In about 4 days I have a finance exam and the only thing it measures is how well i read the manual of my calculator

Now the thing is that I am terribly bad in using my calculator but very good in doing the same things in an excel table, unfortunately I am not allowed to use an excel table.

University vs. University of Applied Sciences vs Work

at the university: you are being taught mainly theory but rather seldom how to apply it. So how to use it?

at the university of applied sciences: you are taught mainly theory with practical examples but very often you will get presented one solution. So what happens if one condition changes?

at work: you have to make an effort in finding out how things work as they always worked, then you can start improving them and hope not to become one of the defenders of the same old way.

Telephone Interview

Even if you can answer the first few questions with a simple yes or no it is advisable to try and give a little extra information to get the interview rolling, but don?t waffle. If you were in the interviewers? position what sort of answer would you want?

The interviewer can?t see your face, but smile as you speak ? it will make you sound more positive and amiable.

Have some perceptive questions ready to ask at the end of an interview. Ask questions that demonstrate your knowledge of the firm or the industry, or clarify points about the position that haven?t already been covered.
