Elena Reznik (Krivoy Rog)
"I’m active and hardworking person by nature. I go in for sports, go to mountains with my husband. I still look for self-realization, for communication, being helpful not only to my family but also to community. I want to bring income to my family. But no matter where I address, they would tell me: there is age limit for applicants.
The feeling was as if my life came to an end. And later on I learned about LDP. For me it was my last chance. I was surprised to hear that my age is not an obstacle, but still felt suspicious when coming for interview. But when LDP staff told me that I was excepted, it became easier to breath.
The training was interesting. New knowledge was provided in such a way, that it instantly became part of my life skills. Now I can see my road again."

Ekateryna Direnko (Kharkov)
"When you're on the edge of desperation to find a decent job and faith leaves you, a miracle happens :) Miracles do happen, and most of them are committed by people like you and me!
I want to express my deep gratitude to the organizers and coaches of LDP for free assistance in employment and their good job!
After training my life has changed much in terms of self-perception, personal goals. The training brought me more trust to people and to myself. During 10 days in interactive form participants were provided with very useful and interesting information, such as time management, personal budget maintenance, etc. - topics of great importance, discussed from unusual angle.
I have to confess that previously for over 8 months I used to send my CV to employers and never received positive reply. It turned out, that your CV style also influences the process, and that is one of the things that I learned at 10-day course. After I corrected inconsistencies and mistakes, I started receiving offers from my dream companies.
It’s only your CV, but it’s first confident step towards changing your life. I recommend the project to my friends, who are unemployed.
Don’t lose a chance to change your life in 10 days.
Ekateryna finished the “Welcome to Work!” course, passed vocational training in HTML and got employed to IT company.

Special thanks to our coach. Thanks to her, now I know how to set goals and achieve them! I passed vocational training in tourism. Project staff, coach, courses - all gave me a push towards a new professional route. Now life plays bright colors.
I would recommend this project to those who stand at the crossroads!

Svetlana Makarenko (Kharkov)
“When I learned about LDP, I decided to take this chance. As a saying goes, even one good advice can change your life, no telling about ten days of full-time training. As the course was provided for free, I felt suspicious.
On my first day at course I was pleasantly surprised, that training will be real and not just on paper.
In our group we had some interesting people, but our coach exceeded my expectations. It was one of the best courses that I ever attended. The workshops were well-arranged, and the knowledge was applicable: methods of job search, types of interviews, CV types, self-presentation, time management, goal setting etc.
And I really liked teambuilding session. Now I have deep understanding, that work results depend much on a team.
Many of us have changed a lot over these 2 weeks. And most of us were granted vocational course in a chosen direction. In a month time after the course I found my dream job.
I want to express my gratitude to LDP and Nova Persona training company for their contribution to my professional future.”
After the 10-day course Svetlana passed vocational course in recruiting and successfully found employment as HR-manager.

Olga Fil’ (Zaporozhye)
"Right after graduating from university I got married and had a child, thus I have no working experience in my field. Now I already have four children, but it did not prevent me from mastering basics of hairdressing and providing hairdressing services at home. Because of lack of skills and experience in this area my clients were mostly relatives and friends, so I never considered it as means of earning money, but rather as a hobby. The 10-day course was exactly what I needed to adapt to labour market. It helped me to be realistic in my expectations, and express my thoughts clearly. It gave me a lot of energy, self-confidence, a sense of reality. "
After the 10-day training Olga was directed to hairdressing course, where she successfully mastered all the details of the chosen profession. Now she rents a room and provides not only hairdressing service, but also manicure and pedicure.
