“Being a PAZ mentor has been an incredible opportunity to learn what perseverance, resilience and courage mean by seeing how the participants of this program embody those qualities while facing the challenges of living as refugees. The PAZ team has created an open forum with a deep sense of how to build connection, inspiration and trust."
“Discovering diverse talent requires being open to it. And openness is always the first step to connecting and learning. I take several lessons from this experience with PAZ, but the one that has been fundamental is: only the one who plays can win. The only ones who can get the best talent are the ones who don’t close themselves to new ways of discovering it.”
“When I arrived in Spain, the toughest impact was to find out I would not be able to work for the following 6 months. My partner and I came with our computers and our best intention to add value to European companies and it was a real shock to get that door shut. We started looking for job offers that we were prepared for, but we never got through the first phase because we didn’t have job permit.
In Spain there are many organizations that aim to help, but they don’t have the tools to help specifically in your area of expertise. One of the first things that I heard was that it was going to be impossible to find a job as a designer. All the courses we got offered were targeting jobs such as shopgirl, cleaner, butcher...
Our case worker in Red Cross introduced us to PAZ, and she said “I think this is going to work for you”. Before then, we were really lost. We didn’t even know how our profession was called in Spain. Once we started the PAZ program, everything started to make sense and the mentors were key to find opportunities. I felt this was really targeted to what I wanted and I needed. My mentor, Cristian, gave me a lot of clarity about where to go and gave me the keys about where and how to start to find a job in Spain as UX/UI.
On top of that, my mentor has introduced me to people that have worked in different kinds of companies, giving me tips and tricks about how they work and how to connect with
This was key to understand clearly what is what the companies need, and how to dmenostrate my differential value in order to succeed in the selection processes.
