Starting February 22, 2022, the RFTA, together with the Spanish University of Rovira and Virgili, has been participating in the COIL international project “Strategies of students and firms in the labor market: a compared analysis (Russia – Spain). Career start".
From February 22 till April 26, 2022, 3rd year Bachelor Program students of Foreign Trade Management Department studying ‘Personal Economics and Human Resource Management’, are working on the COIL project together with the 3rd year students of the Spanish University of Rovira and Virgili.
The University of Rovira and Virgili (Universitat Rovira i Virgili) was established in 1991 by the Parliament of Catalonia on the basis of the existing faculties of universities and schools. Located in Tarragona, the University of Rovira and Virgili, like the RFTA of the Ministry of Economic Development of Russia, is a member of the Alliance of Russian and Spanish Universities (ARSU).
COIL (Сollaborative Online International Learning) is the work of students in international teams to develop intercultural communication skills and to jointly search for answers to the problems of modern society. As a part of the course, students from the two countries will identify the problems of graduate employment in the labor markets of Spain and Russia and find ways to solve them.
We would like to understand what job search models are used by young specialists in the labor markets of Spain and Russia, what motivates future specialists. What does the labor market look like for them? Are there gender differences in career planning and job search? What job market is the most university graduate friendly?
The main idea of the project is to identify young professionals’ job search problems in the labor market at the beginning of their careers. We are also going to develop recommendations for graduates on the best approaches to job search in the Spanish and Russian labor markets.
