The trainee processes applications for subsidies, verifies opinions, prepares analytical and presentation materials, and studies the regulatory framework.

“We, of course, help, but it’s still difficult for the interns at first. We have a large volume of work and tight deadlines – this is the rhythm that is unusual for them. But interns really like it when they are given really serious assignments. Not just print the document, but as for real employees, colleagues, when they are consulted, they are asked for their opinion. Then everyone feels like a team, ”says Ksenia Zolotukhina.

She chose the direction “HR-city”, and at the first stage of the internship she was the only one sent to the Moscow Government University, to the personnel department.
