Traineeship at the Embassy of Lithuania in Ireland
After finishing my master studies, I decided to participate in Erasmus+ program. I quit my job where I was working for four years, left everything behind and I let the fate set all the points. So, three month of traineeship at the Embassy of Lithuania in Ireland begins.
First of all, the biggest challenge for me, was to find a rent and settle in a new city all by myself. But actually everything went really well. I lived close to the embassy, so I could get to the job by walking. My roommates were all Irish, so it allowed me also to improve foreign language.
As I finished public administration master studies and also have politics bachelor, the Embassy was a perfect institution to improve my knowledge about citizenship policy, migration and administrative skills. Days were really busy, I had many different tasks to do, so it let me to know the main activities and responsibilities of the Embassy. Furthermore, we had many events with Lithuanian community during spring. It was really nice to see how people unites and promotes our culture. During my free time I explored Ireland and beautiful nature of it.
Overall, it was a life changing experience for me, because after my traineeship I will be employed at the Embassy and start my new career chapter in Dublin. I definitely recommend to participate in Erasmus+ program.
