First impression first, personality – later. GOW2015 in Lithuania

Kind of  rumors are wandering around in the jungles of internet. They say current teenagers have posted so many questionably moral things already that by the time they will look for a job they will need to change their real names hiding young age monkey business online. Is it true? How can we prevent this?

Familiar = Understandable

Recently in the frame of European Get Online Week 2015, “Langas į ateitį“ team next to other activities is organizing seminars for teenagers, university students and young unemployed people on online reputation building, explaining why it is important to think about future career before posting.

„My presentation is simple and very well understandable for everyone because it‘s about being online. Each time making a presentation very personal with own examples, print screens and situations, we provide youth with 7 simple rules for keeping good online reputation. We share with them our experience in selecting people for our projects, showcase the results of employers’ opinion survey, etc. The audience is slightly shocked when they recognize themselves in the examples and realize what they have to check straight after the seminar“, GOW2015 coordinator in Lithuania Karolina Jasvinaitė comments.


New opportunity

This topic goes hand in hand with one of this GOW2015 highlights - YouRock.Jobs . One of the ways to make a good first impression for people who „google“ about the person is to create own portfolio online.  YouRock.Jobs enables young person to do that without having any official working experience. According to the number of new registrations, audience finds it interesting and catchy.


Activities of GOW2015

Traditionally starting in 2010 librarians, professional educators and IT teachers all over the country are aware of Get Online Week campaign coordinated by “Langas į ateitį”. Every March they organize activities in their communities: brain battles, Skillage test competitions, YouRock.Jobs workshops, etc. The big input to the national GOW2015 activities’ “pot” is being made by National digital coalition partners. They contribute with coding, robotics and graphic design workshops, IT contest and publicity. This cooperation will directly empower more than 5000 people.
