Following an official inauguration by Anuarbek Kakabayev, Head of the European Programmes Department at Sh.

  3. Market Research tools
  4. Job Fairs and Matchmaking events.


The Training Module also included a visit to Sh. Ualikhanov Kokshetau State University and its newly re-branded Career Centre.
