Within the project "A Success Story" Petrozavodsk State University Career Center arranged for economics students to meet the Arthur Kiiski, Director for Economics and Finance of JSC "St. Petersburg Heating Network".

The main objective of the project is to familiarize students and graduates of PetrSU with interesting people who have achieved career heights and are ready to share the secrets of their success.
Arthur Kiiski graduated with honors from the Economics Faculty of Petrozavodsk State University, with a degree in Management. From 2002 to 2012 he taught at the department of economics and finance of the university, which indicates that our guest is very well acquainted with the student audience and his performance as much as possible takes account of the peculiarities of students and graduates of the Faculty of Economics.
The basic idea, which the guest tried to get across to the meeting participants, lies in his citation: "Try to show yourself at your first chance!". By the way, few students took advantage of this opportunity during and after the prospective employer’s talk. A.Kiiski also spoke about the faults and shortcomings that he observes in young job seekers in order to ensure that our students take this information into service and use it to enhance their competitiveness, in order to increase their benefits and their appeal for the employer.
After the meeting, some students asked the guest their questions and received detailed answers to them. The questions regarded both career path characteristics of the speaker, and opportunities to go on an internship at the company.
