CONNECT supports companies and young professionals with the mission of sustaining the excellence in shipping. It adds value by safeguarding quality and sustaining high standards, by ensuring that the new entries are well equipped and can fit into the shipping work ethic.

“As college students enter the work force without any previous “on the job training” or basic administration skills, they are left on their own to improvise in their new positions. Working basis trial and error costs the company and its customers time and money; or a colleague trains them while leaving their own work behind. Having gathered specialized expertise together for this project, we guide & groom shipping-educated students & grads through specialized seminars and career counselors on our team. We compliment the HR facility, if existing, making life easier for companies.”  states Ms Irene Notias, Director.

“At CONNECT, we add value to the candidates by offering them an introduction to the shipping business world and to the work ethic, helping them clarify their goals, ambitions and reasons for joining shipping, through cancelling. We also offer CV editing, presentation skills training, interviewing tips and orientation & mentoring on what it takes to build a successful career and become a valued professional.” She continues.

How they do it:

  1. Promote the determined, self-motivated, willing to work hard, reliable students & graduates who have the interest to listen, take instruction, learn, apply themselves and thus develop into a productive employee.
  2. Assist in the candidates profile from CV to presentation skills for interviews & thus they offer an enriched CV Bank of pre-screened potential employees to pick from.
  3. Provide guidance and crash courses on Administrative Assistant skills, paid by the candidate or enterprise, such as:   business letter writing, phone and office manners, listening & communications skills and dress code for office.
  4. Provide self-development training seminars.

CONNECT enhances the chances of placement for grads in internship (and entry level) posts when there is a demand and campaigns to the existing network  of clients & partners (Prime Management Services’ shipping network )to take on interns.

“We vision a changing-for-the-better Greece”, claims the director, Ms Irene Notias.  She adds, “CONNECT was born from the realization of the current urgent need of the young workforce to enter the workplace, and of the Shipping companies to recruit the right people. We bridge this gap.
