Youth @ Work - Slovakia


Young people have been hard hit by the economic crisis as they often lack the experience and skills to be competitive. Today one in five young Europeans cannot find a job. However, the Youth@Work campaign aims to show that thanks to their fresh take on the world, young people often have lots of energy and innovative ideas which can be useful to businesses.
According to a European study, Slovakia had the second highest rate of youth unemployment in 2010 with 32.6%. Terezia Madarova is 29 year old. When she lost her job 10 years ago, she found herself unsure of what to do next. She decided it was a great opportunity to start her own modelling and casting agency. The young woman made her first steps in her one room apartment: she bought a computer, a camera and started taking pictures of her friends. Nowadays she’s the owner of one of the largest agencies in Central Europe.
