Youth Platform “Be Profi”

At “Mykolaiv Center for Sociological Research” of Petro Mohyla Black Sea National University the student research section “Youth Platform “Be Profi” operates. On the basis of this youth platform there are discussions on topical issues of sociological science and meetings with professionals working in the field of sociology and related branches of economic activity. Meetings take place regularly – once every three months.

At the present stage of society’s development, in an era of information, a large number of new and previously unknown professions appeared which can be realized by graduates of the specialty “Sociology”:  community manager, PR manager, and others. Such words flooded the labor market and continue to seep successfully to our daily lives. Today, the SMM manager is already familiar with young people and some employers. But for many people this profession is still unknown. What should this person do, what are his duties, what level of education should he have? “Youth Platform “Be Profi” organizes meetings with well-known and knowledgeable people in this field, which carry out trainings on a wide range of topics.

In particular, on October 16, 2018, Oleksandra Orlova, a smm-specialist, founder of the company “CLOUD”, was invited as a speaker to “Youth Platform “Be Profi”. Being 20 years old, Oleksandra Orlova not only studies at universities and helps parents, but also has her small company. As part of the “Instagram as Business” meeting, Ms. Olexandra talked about how to develop your brand and how to “promote” it to the Instagram social network, how to earn money from doing this, and what must be done for this.

 “The youth platform “Be Profi” is a great opportunity for students of the specialty “Sociology” of  Petro Mohyla Black Sea National University determine with their life goals, reflect on what to do in the future and discover new ways of realizing their potential.
