Career steps since the graduation

“Currently, I am working in the financial department of an NGO operating in the social sector in Eastern Europe. Working in an international environment allows me to apply the knowledge and skills I gained during the ETIA program on a daily basis. Even though it might not be obvious, climate change also plays an important role in this sector and I think it is very interesting and important to combine environmental and social sustainability.”
