Hannes Farlock: IMARES program offered a true opportunity to change my professional life
Hannes Farlock, IMARES program alumnus (class 2012), just sent us a nice letter from Moscow where he heads one of the departments at the German-Russian Chamber of Commerce:
After having worked several years in my first job in Germany after university, I felt the urge to change my professional career and to focus on the CIS countries. The IMARES program offered a true opportunity to do this. For me it was a very valuable experience that sharpened my understanding of the region, the language and culture. Eventually it completely changed my professional life.
The experience at EUSP offered me the possibility to stay in the region after graduation and to follow interesting job opportunities. After having spent several years working in IT in Belarus, I returned to Russia now where I work for the German-Russian Chamber of Commerce in Moscow.
Thanks a lot to the team at the EUSP for your support and inspiration.
