NEST training – from 22nd to the 26th of February

The first day we all introduced ourselves and stated what has changed in our lives as an ice breaker activity. The trainer Iker Inchauspe then discussed what we were going to talk about and what we were doing wrong when we are looking for a job. He stated that our target profession or job is where the answers for these three-question overlap.
