You live in Kosovo and consider a career in marketing and communication? This is your opportunity to jump from university directly into a new venture and become a start-up entrepreneur in Kosovo.
How does it work? Our client Lority Corporation, a Swiss venture aiming to support ethnic communities in Switzerland and the Balkans, is seeking 3-5 ambitious talents with entrepreneurial spirit to set up a social media marketing and communication agency in Prishtina, Kosovo. This could be you! Are you ready to demonstrate your entrepreneurial ambitions and creativity in social media, community management and marketing campaign topics?
Instead of running a traditional recruiting/selection process with CVs, applications letters and interviews we are doing this a little bit differently this time: we run a scouting competition. And we want you to enjoy it, to learn from this experience and to be able to demonstrate why you are the entrepreneur Lority is looking for.
This virtual competition has 2 stages. The entire competition is free (well, free to you and generously sponsored by Lority). You may enter the competition by simply filling in the registration form below. In Stage 1 we will invite you to show us why we should consider you. At the same time we will share some interesting materials that may help sharpen your entrepreneurial skills. To complete Stage 1 of this competition, expect a workload of roughly 4-8 hours. Your work result of Stage 1 will be evaluated directly by the Lority management team. If you rank among the top 20 percent at the end of this program, Lority will invite you to stage 2 of the competition: the virtual team collaboration stage. With this 2-stage assessment Lority aims to find the 3-5 most talented individuals with a healthy team-oriented attitude and the drive to run an international social media communication and marketing agency based in Prishtina, Kosovo.
