If you look up the definition of ´emerging markets´ in 2021 you will quickly learn that these include the fast growing economies of India, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, China, and Brazil. The highest contender China has four of the world´s largest banks operating from Shanghai. HSBC, which is the 5th largest bank on the planet, does most of its business from China. There are key micro and macro economic factors that will be having an impact on the growth of certain markets as well as the development of the ´Corona-recession´ and its impact. In this post we will focus on 2 major economies on the world stage being Russia and Saudi Arabia. The latter ones is especially interesting as Webinars4you will host a live session on September 16th to address the opportunity to study ´STEM´ for FREE. This includes Science, Technology, Engineering and Math studies. Find more information here: 

We Fund Your Future: Scholarships in STEM for Graduate Studies

The 2nd highlighted country is Russia, a country that entered into recession in 2015 due to falling oil prices and harsher western economic sanctions,however the latest statistics from The World Bank shows a steady 2% growth in GDP since 2017, and despite a setback in 2020 is expected to bounce back in 2021.

Why study in Russia?

You might have different associations when someone mentions Russia. It is one of the strongest countries in the world with great scientists, sports athletes, and a strong military. Russia is also a country with the largest territory in the world that stretches from the German borders all over to Japan and the United States.

The nation, therefore, presents a mixture of different cultures and traditions. That affects different aspects of Russian life, and you can see those in architecture, lifestyle, cuisine, and other similar customs.

Metropolises and Large Cities

Russia is also a very popular study destination, with leading Universities such as Higher School of Economics and Moscow State University, Saint Petersburg´s Polytecnic as well as State University, besides various well-established institutes in Novosibirsk, Tomsk, Kazan and Sochi (known for the olympics). With millions of visits on a yearly basis, all three places are unique in their own way. The first is the capital city of Russia with approximately 12 million citizens. The territory of the place is also very large so Moscow is one of the largest metropolises in the entire world. There are many important objects, monuments, buildings, and locations in the city. These were often made in a unique architectural style so they are quite different from ordinary objects. Such locations typically leave a very strong impression on visitors, and it is always a remarkable and unforgettable experience.

Saint Petersburg’s specifications are pretty similar. The city is not as big as Moscow, but it still has 5 million residents. The figure puts this place in second place when it comes to the size of the metropolis. Saint Petersburg has been the main seaport of the country for centuries. It has a strategic position on the Baltic Sea near the borders of other European countries. The city is also home to a large number of remarkable, amazing, and historically important objects, buildings, locations and monuments.

Undiscovered Tourist Gems

Russia indeed has a large number of such tourist gems, and they are an excellent opportunity for all travelers. Some of the amazing locations are still undiscovered by visitors. Many of the areas in Russia are hardly approachable so they are out of reach of most. However, those who know what and where to look might have enough luck to discover such places.

The list of these is long too. Tikhaya Bay, the City of Dead, and Mendeleev Volcano are some of such places. The first from this list is truly extraordinary. The bay is located on Sakhalin Island, and you can find a long and large abandoned beach that goes all over the coast. These are surrounded by amazing nature so the visitors can really enjoy the sight and experience. No one is actually living or visiting the place so it is entirely reserved for the luckiest tourists. If you have enough time and resources, you can arrive here despite the distance and other potential obstacles. That would certainly be an unforgettable adventure you should not avoid.

Simple procedure to obtain Tourist Visa

It is also good to know Russia is an open country. Foreign visitors need an appropriate visa in order to get access within the borders, but it is usually easy to obtain such a travel document. There are different types of visas including tourist visas, work visas, business visas, and others. The requirements for these might be different, but that’s not very important. The tourists should ask for the first type. They have to visit the nearest embassy or consulate in their countries to start the procedure.

Procedure and necessary Documents

The authorities will then ask to fill appropriate forms and provide necessary documents to apply a visa. These usually include a valid passport, two photos, and a Russian invitation. The procedure is usually just a formality, and you should finish it in a few days. It is, of course, necessary to provide all the authorities ask from you. The passport should be valid for at least next year so you should definitely replace it if the expiration date is very near. That’s the best way to avoid any troubles during the application. Tourist visas are usually issued very fast so the time frame might range from several days to two-three week

For some it is a necessity but for others just a “nice to have”, find a job while studying at the university is a huge opportunity you have to catch in advance.

✎ Here in this blog post, I’ll try to give you some useful tips to get a job while studying.

Let’s start from the beginning! Studying at a University is not an easy step in your life and it requires focus, passion, motivation as well as sacrifices. Considering the latter, they are meant to be under the sphere of reducing or abandoning part of your social life in order to support your future personal and professional career. Even more, you have to know studying at the university is not a joke and all the beautiful things you have spent during high school are going to decrease. And above all, it would be better to find a job meanwhile attending uni courses.

Ok, there are situations where some students are kind of obligated to find a job to fund studies and others where they are just super motivated to start working while studying. However, in both situations, it will be the best choice you could take.

✔ GET THE RIGHT MINDSET

Generally speaking, it’s hard to find a job if you’re not mentally ready to do it. I try to explain myself in a clearer way. Until you’re just thinking about working but your mindset is not deeply oriented in pushing efforts in finding it, you won’t be able to start.

For this reason, what I suggest you is setting up your mindset in a way that you feel an insight powerful motivation to start. And trust me, as you are mentally ready, you’ll get into a tunnel full of job opportunities and new realities.

✔ BALANCE BETWEEN WORK AND UNIVERSITY

Here it comes the tough part: combine work and university. Honestly, in most cases, it’s quite hard to start a full-time job while studying. But wait, there are a lot of part-time positions out there! And covering this position means combining successfully work and uni courses. Above all, you have nowadays a huge range of part-time positions, from a bartender to an intern in a company. I know, talking about money, clearly, you won’t be paid as a full job but it’s always a good way to start and join the job environment.

As you find the balance, you will be successfully able to coordinate your studies and your daily job tasks.

✔ WHERE TO FIND JOB OPPORTUNITIES?

In this current digitalized world, you have several ways to find a job position:

  1. LinkedIn: the first thing I suggest you is to fix and set your LinkedIn profile. In fact, many companies are daily posting job position announcements and hiring posts on this Social Media. Thus, sit down, open your laptop, and fill up your profile with all information that shows your experiences, skills and academic background. Afterwards, start sending applications. In the beginning, you won’t receive answers, but over the weeks I’m sure you’ll get positive notifications from LinkedIn.
  2. University Portal: in almost all universities, you have a proper portal where companies publish available job positions for students. In this case, companies are likely in collaboration with your university and they are more open to hiring students. Moreover, it’s easier to find a part-time job in these portals since companies basically know your current situation of student-worker. You can find also study programs that allow you to do an internship before graduating. Just to give you an example, Hof University in Germany offers a Master in Software Engineering where students spend the second year doing a practical internship in industry.
  3. Spread your voice: seems old school, but it’s always a good way! Just ask around about available job positions as well as tell about your motivation to start working. Talk with friends, family and professors of your uni. You could have the chance to find something just spreading your voice!
  4. Other online websites: there are thousands of websites where you can set up your profile (same idea as LinkedIn) and find out job positions. Just surf on the internet and I’m sure you’ll find interesting websites. We can recommend for example to search and apply for the latest student jobs here.

≫ WHAT COMES AFTERWARDS?

As you get a job, your life will definitively change. From day one, you’ll feel more responsible for yourself. Above all, I’m sure you’ll be strongly able to combine working hours with your studies (ok, maybe you’ll need some time to settle down!). Most importantly, remember that work means improving your CV. And if you start working at early ages while studying, companies will appreciate it and you’ll likely have more chances to find a great job after graduating.

Last but not least, in most cases, you’ll earn money! And since I’m a student as well, I know that having more money in your pocket during the uni period is something super satisfying and helpful for your daily (and night!!) life.

⌛ What are you waiting for? Your dream study abroad starts here!

The ‘Digital Revolution’… a term found on the lips of many analysts these days. It’s real and it’s happening now! Actually, it’s been happening for several years now, likely catapulted by the pandemia recently, so it is more important than ever to find the right career to secure yourself a job for years to come! As it seems, humankind has reached a new peak in its development as a species (or some may say decrease, depending on your point of view..), as we employ more advanced ways to communicate, interact, buy and deliver goods and services. You can´t escape it.

Experts predict that 85 per cent of jobs that will exist in 2030 are yet to be invented (IFTF 2017). This is partly due to the continual growth and development of technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning and robotics which will replace some current jobs. It is estimated that certain professions will be completely obsolete by 2030, such as travel agents, taxi drivers, various construction jobs etc as these jobs are expected to become automated instead of being undertaken by humans. 

So are you you prepared for the digital revolution in one way or another?

 

The gap – and opportunity!- in the (labour)market

With a possible crisis looming, employers are all about saving money and time, and need to hire the right skill-sets to be able to compete in the new digital era. Although definitely some jobs are under pressure, and some might even disappear, we show you the 4 top jobs where a job is almost guaranteed as there are very few candidates who are digitally-qualified enough. So are you one of them?

Digitally-equipped people get paid more

Surprised much? It’s true though! Studies show that digitally-savvy people are more likely to receive salary raises once already employed, salary raises which would normally amount to at least 10% of what their current salary is. Whatever your job, employers value more the employees with added digital skills and you set yourself up for a better career, promotions and salary. 

So which are those 4 best jobs to get yourself prepared for?

1. Computer science and IT 

Computer science and IT are likely the most rapidly evolving field that is only expected to grow over time. There is great demand for people with skills and knowledge in this area which makes it a promising industry for those looking for a career with longevity. Although controversial, robots are increasing the speed and efficiency of many processes and everyday tasks. For example, Artificial Intelligence designed machines that can be used in response to natural disasters, therefore preventing human risk. Robots are also being used in healthcare, such as in surgery for increased precision and control. 

So how do you start a career in Computer Science and IT?

While not all jobs require a degree, it will be beneficial for your career in the long term and is compulsory for some positions. Relevant degree subjects include:

You could also develop your skills with a bachelor degree in Artificial Intelligence to start specializing yourself directly, and once you’ve qualified, you can start applying for roles in the robotics field such as a technician, operator, or engineer. The average salary of a robotics engineer is Euro 42,000 per year, but this can increase to 60,000 Euro with experience (Talent.com).

2. Health practitioner

Humans will always need medical care and assistance. This is why roles within medicine are continually in high demand. While some medical processes can be automated, there will always be the need for human interaction, providing empathy and understanding which cannot be easily replicated by machines.

Doctors and nurses need to provide an overall assessment of a patient’s needs, not limited to just their physical condition but also wellbeing and state of mind. In addition, healthcare professionals often face ethical dilemmas that computers are unlikely to resolve. So, if you’ve been thinking about a career in medicine, you needn’t worry about your job becoming obsolete anytime soon.

3. Marketing and PR

Marketers use their creative flair and ability to employ words and imagery to convey different messages. Coming up with new and innovative ideas would be very difficult for a machine to imitate. Digital marketing and management is in particularly high demand as consumers are predominantly online. Gaining digital skills will therefore be beneficial for any career you wish to pursue as so much of our everyday lives exist online. In the EU, the average salary of a digital marketeer is 37,500 Euro per year, reaching 52,000 Euro for a more senior level job (Totaljobs). 

Similarly, PR or public relations is all about networking and managing relationships. This profession requires strong interpersonal and communication skills which will always be highly employable even with the emergence of new technologies and automated processes. A PR officer can expect to earn between 25,000 and 40,000 Euro depending on experience, reaching up to 100,000 Euro for senior positions. 

Search for Best Universities

Most marketing jobs are open to all graduates, you just need to demonstrate your transferrable skills or relevant work experience. Additionally many can be done as a Freelancer, so you could even start your own company and work flexible, possibly wherever you want!

4. Social work 

Empathy, understanding, compassion and emotional intelligence. These are just a few of the most important skills and attributes of any social worker which are unlikely to be adopted by machines any time soon. This role also requires critical thinking and ethical decision-making which you need to develop through training. 

To become a social worker, you can study an undergraduate degree in humanities or social science or choose any of the subjects in this field of study. The typical salary for a social worker is between 24,000 and 30,000 Euro depending on location and experience (Graduate Prospects 2019). So, if you enjoy helping others, social care could be the right career for you, offering longevity, fulfillment, and a stable income.

Webinars 4 You

MSc or MBA, that´s the questions! At least for today´s Blog topic. There’s always been this confusion  about what a recent business graduate should undergo with regards to their further postgraduate education, which is why we are going to talk about the pros, cons, similarities, differences between doing an MSc (Master of Science) in Management and the infamous MBA (Master’s of Business Administration). Here are some main points to consider:

Age/work experience

MSc or MBAThe main impediment of being accepted for an MBA program is your work experience. You should know that the average age of graduates starting their MBA is around 27, whereas the average for doing an MSc is just 23! In other words, MBA’s are directly aimed at highly experienced professionals (normally at least 3 years of experience in the work field!); but in the case of an MSc, any recent Bachelor’s graduate can enroll, even if they don’t have work experience at all (sometimes 0-2 years of experience being required)!

Teaching methods

MSc or MBAAnother difference between an MSc and an MBA consists of how the curricula are built, curricula that later impact on the students’ careers. For example, whilst an MSc is targeted at kickstarting the student’s career, what they MBA does is taking the student on step above further on the career ladder (as they get extremely in-depth business knowledge and not just some more surface knowledge like in the case of an MSc). While an MSc is about more theory, the MBA focuses on practicality, employing tools such as real-life case studies.

Show me the MONEY!

MSc or MBAThe hottest section of the blog I would say, eh? The difference in tuition fees is uncanny and it cannot be unseen. An MBA’s tuition can reach even the astronomical fee of $100,000 at an hugely prestigious university! MSc are generally more affordable than MBA’s, however it also is about the Return On Investment after all (ROI). Both are good investments, so it does depend on your current point in your career, but as an idea having an MBA can easily pay you a salary of $100,000 and an MSc of $50,000!

Employment prospects

MSc or MBAMBA’s have always been received with high praise by companies, Human Resources being aware of the value MBA holders can bring to the company, while MSc’s are currently rapidly growing around the world with regards to their popularity. And MBA can easily land you an Executive position in any company, but at the same time being an MSc graduate can be qualified for entry and mid-level position due to the lack of their depth.
