Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs is an opportunity for young individuals who wants to start their business in the future but first want to gain insight into a company similar to the one they have already planned. The programme is a win-win situation for both the new entrepreneur and the host entrepreneur because the principles of the programme include the creation of a win-win situation. In this way, the newcomer by helping and shadowing the experienced businessperson in their daily duties can see how it is to have a company and to be an entrepreneur.
It was the possibilities offered by the programme that brought my attention to the TJT: to develop my skills in the tourism industry. I’m Kincso and I come from Romania (Cluj-Napoca), studied economics and worked for a fiance-IT multinational company (Wolters Kluwer) for four years as a functional analyst – but as I always had the thought of having my own business, so I interested in such an opportunity to work directly with a well-established company.
Today is the 13th of January, but I do not think it is an unlucky day. I am having a really great time in Tenerife, my workmates are nice and the weather couldn't be better. During the week, I got more information about how TJT works and what they do, what their projects have been in the past, and what are the current and future projects. I found out what platforms they use to organise their daily activity. I helped two students with the administrative integration. I try to fit in and lend a helping hand. However, I have a lot of experience and adventure ahead of me. Stay tuned, because I will be back with another report soon!
