    the colleagues to the local bar and switch off Hello everyone My name is Zdenka Pajtasova and I am originally from Slovakia I studied my bachelor at RUC with combination of Global studies and Business Studies I was a volunteer and a member of the National Board of AIESEC in Denmark as well as in Costa Rica and right now I am doing a professional internship with AIESEC here in Costa Rica In my internship I am working for a Business School called INCAE where I am responsible for Corporate Relations in Costa Rica within the department of Career Services I love my internship because I am in touch with HR managers not only from Costa Rica but from whole LATAM and it gives me insights to how the businesses and HR works but also to a specific cultural touch of Latin America and how things are run here I am looking forward to sharing with you my experiences from work AIESEC and Latin American culture enjoy my first post below Pura Vida as a literal translation means pure life However here in Costa Rica it means so much more It means a lifestyle where you enjoy your life You are joyful from the small things You don t worry too much And that is something that I think we Europeans need to learn I love my internship because I am in touch with HR managers not only from Costa Rica but from whole LATAM and it gives me insights to how the businesses and HR works but also to a specific cultural touch of Latin America and how things are run here I m from Slovakia and I did my bachelor in Denmark Very European approach to life a lot of worrying everything has a structure In Costa Rica during my time when I worked for AIESEC and now in my internship I understand more and more the pura vida The bus doesn t come Pura vida take it easy How are you Pura vida everything is fine Here you go it s the book you wanted Pura vida thanks Pura vida is used in so many ways being a central part of their lives But in order to understand pura vida fully you need to sit on a beach with no tourists watching sunset enjoy the cake at the office go with the colleagues to the local bar restaurant because most of them are bar restaurants and switch off All the worries job related talks and just be pura vida But what I realized is that sometimes the very own great unique things that we have and value within our culture can also be our weakness When I talk to Costaricans about Europeans they tell me that we are too stiff That we like structure too much and we make excels about excels But pura vida also has its downside It s not done Pura vida don t worry too much The bus does not have a schedule

    not altering the laws not persecuting people for their religion not setting up tighter borders not watching each other intently not bringing back torture to detainees captured by the CIA is also an action In fact these actions all contribute to a slightly better outcome than what is awaiting if we fail to reach out and collaborate with the large Muslim communities that live among Christians and all the rest People of all background die in the attacks so it is time we look at the enemy as one It is called ignorance In another note as a kind of reflection to the video above it does mention how the religious leaders should not let these extremists off the hook any longer Well believe it or not there was an open letter written almost two years ago by prestigious academics of the Islam condemning the leaders and members of ISIS for their unholy ways In a way they have made it clear enough that the Arab world does not approve of the group It is an encouraging gesture one that invites faith in the future of the world In Denmark extremism is a fairly unknown word but unfortunately the effects of ISIS have reached this country too Disaffected young people who are out of reach of their peers and parents fall victim to a promise that seems exciting that seems to hold something much more valuable than what their immediate environment can offer them We are talking about the educated here we are talking about the future generation the ones we are losing as we speak These are not the kind of leaders we want to build upon AIESEC needs people who are not afraid to stand up and change what they are unhappy about instead of going into war for someone else who intends to make a political statement out of bodies Whatever was just written here is but a small drop in a very big ocean We advise all our readers to remain informed to remain open minded and above all remain kind If you want to hear more about how AIESEC develops young leaders all over the globe to prevent conflicts head over to our article about our Leadership Development Model 2 0 or follow us on Facebook and help us reach our goals faster 4 reasons to work in AIESEC Denmark 24 November 2015 0 Comments in Hvad vi laver Our people by Jose As Confucius put it about 2 500 years ago when you love your work you never work a day And that s about right Never have the past 2 5 years in AIESEC seemed like work to me My name is Zé I m a Portuguese guy working in the national office of AIESEC in Denmark and I m responsible for the marketing of the organization Last week I flew from Copenhagen to Switzerland where I was part of the team who organized a conference for 350 people in the Alps The

  • Vietnam with Claudia - Part IV - AIESEC
    the traditional star shaped lanterns and dragon or lion shaped masks In the evening you can see kids dances with these lanterns and masks performances that can be quite entertaining Times have changed a lot though so you will find all kinds of new and funny masks bunny ears and tiaras When I walked around all little boys were wearing some kind of mask and all little girls had some princess y accessory so cuuuute Correction all little kids and childish adults like us quote from Ann Gatherings Definitely the most important activity is the family gathering where they cook and enjoy the time together I did not have time to experience that but I was lucky to experience other two activities company gatherings and street markets For around two weeks there have been quite a lot of preparations and discussions about the Mid Autumn Festival company gathering who should be preparing it who wants to act or sing who will do the decorations I have never seen this in any of my previous jobs and I ended up considering it a really nice part of the company culture everyone wanted to make it special What was quite shocking for me was to hear that it was scheduled for Sunday morning at 8 30 but on the actual day I was sooo grateful as it got waaay too hot outside after 9 00 So when the day finally arrived I was really looking forward to seeing it Truth is that I did not understand much since it was all in Vietnamese but I got to see the importance that people here place on kids The amount of kids present amazed me I knew that my co workers who have kids would bring them but I did not expect to see more kids than adults As a bracket here I need to add that most women have children by 25 quite different from Europe which explains all the focus on kids The whole show was prepared for kids also quite different to company parties in e g Denmark and they received gifts and played games It was a lot of fun to see some of my friends singing and acting and being funny on stage The other activity was going to street markets In the Old Town area it was absolutely packed The market was also focused on kids no surprise there It was full of toys most of the stands sold exactly the same things tiaras and bunny ears and masks dragon head and mini drums and snacks And the atmosphere just like on the 2 September was so happy and energetic although it was way too hot outside Food Finally I can use a whole section to talk about food yaaay But actually for the Mid Autumn Festival there is only one thing they sell everywhere Mooncake The past two weeks there have been mooncake stands on every street corner and the famous mooncake producers have had waiting lines

  • Claudia on the streets of Vietnam - AIESEC
    newspaper and staring at the street Sure the most common is chilling on their typical tiny chairs yes even short Claudia thinks they are tiny in combination with some other activity Chilling and eating Chilling and drinking Tra Da their traditional ice tea very typical and beloved in Hanoi Chilling and gambling I should be saying we instead of they since I spend quite a lot of lunch breaks drinking ice tea in front of the office or eating Pho for dinner in the back alleys behind my house I just love to be outside no matter how much noise there is from the crazy traffic It s very cosy In my opinion the best moments are when you see them chilling on their motorbikes When I went to eat ice cream at Tran Tien there were no tables or chairs we were all just eating them sitting on their motorcycles I ve seen them sleeping on them especially the ones who work as motorbike taxi drivers quite amazing that they didn t fall down Most hilarious one was this guy shaving sitting there like a boss I m serious And then there are some who don t chill but work form their motorbikes the drivers and those street vendors with loudspeakers yelling about their products who work 24 7 and creep the hell out of me during the complete midnight silence You can imagine how much life there is on the streets even when it s crazy warm or storming However I have to add something Vietnamese people almost never walk If there s 300 metres between your office and the street food place you ll take your motorbike But as a tourist you don t really notice this until you go for a walk and every single taxi

  • Vietnam with Claudia - Part II - AIESEC
    due to rehearsals for Independence Day 2 nd of September so that made it look even more extreme as there was absolutely no person in the square Our trip continued to two pagodas the Tran Quoc pagoda and the Tay Ho pagoda The first one is the oldest pagoda in Hanoi it is bigger and has more shrines It does not only worship Buddhas it also worships Mothers female Buddhas It is situated next to Ho Tay West Lake which is huge and makes the pagoda s garden look extremely peaceful The second one was smaller yet just as liked by the locals It inspired a rather hygge feeling with people sitting and talking in its garden also next to a small lake praying for longer and burning things that would help their gone friends and relatives have a better life in the afterlife I still cannot say which one I liked most both beautiful in their own ways similar yet so different I hadn t eaten in like two hours so this had to be followed by Tran Tien ice cream It was a quite interesting place a big room with different booths each selling another type of ice cream The weird thing was that everyone went in with their motorbikes and parked them there then ate the ice cream sitting on their bikes or just standing There were no decorations no nothing people actually just went there for the ice cream Then the ride continued towards the university area where my great guide showed me amongst other the university of economics the one of business engineering You might wonder why I think it s worth posting about it Well mainly because it is soooo diferent to what I experienced during my university life If you live in DK pretty much all universities have quite beautiful buildings and I feel like a lot of focus is on having cozy places Here it was not quite like that the aspect did not seem to matter much neither in the universities nor in their dorms Simple buildings quite similar to the ones that were built in Romania during the communist times old paint and little garden space But then you get to the backstreets around the campus and it s full of life Food street food people playing sports gambling and laughing It felt like half of the young people in Hanoi were hanging out there We sat down at a street food place ate snails yup They were delicious and drank ice tea and the atmosphere was so lively It seemed like students were having a great time without all the need to prettify buildings parks and the surroundings Right when we left it started raining so my beautiful touristy day ended there But this post is about 1 5 days Why Well because on the 2 nd of September we had the day off work due to their Independence Day Why only 0 5 Their day begins at 7

  • Why should we care about corporate events? - AIESEC
    to be used later in life Q So can you tell us about the latest event that you had with SDU A We had an event last week however we tried not to focus only on presenting AIESEC and why you should choose it but also to show how it can help you later either through skills or through networking It was more of a self branding event where we collaborated with our partner CA Karrierepartner og A kasse to organize it The main benefit of that of course is that part of the budget is also covered this way especially food and location Q Who did you invite to this event A We had professional speakers such as Henrik Hahn Nissen as well as AIESEC speakers Our External Relations Manager got in contact with the external speakers through LinkedIn and got him to come and speak for us Then we talked about self branding networking explaining how best to use these two together and how can you use it for entrepreneurial purposes We can broaden our own business partnerships We can also promote ourselves to the business and to customers So I think it is more than relevant to use external speakers when possible Rikke Q How long have you been involved with these events A I ve only joined Marketing in September The idea and partnerships were already arranged but I did participate in the discussion of ideas and the process Q How would you evaluate the event A It was good When you focus on what they got out of it the event was a success The participants looked satisfied and happy during and after There was a good mood about the event so hopefully it will attract more people next time The focus is on creating a good event and thus awareness that s the output we are hoping for At the moment we only use Facebook for these events but next time we are planning on using posters and we do send follow up emails to the attendants who expressed their wish to be informed about coming events Q What other things are you planning in the near future A We are planning two more events at the start of next year The next one in January is going to be about how to write the perfect CV We want to give the attendants something of value and they do need this skill Q What is the benefit of using external partners during AIESEC events A For once we can tap into their database of members We can broaden our own business partnerships We can also promote ourselves to the business and to customers So I think it is more than relevant to use external speakers when possible while making it aligned with our own purposes Q How do you see the purpose of corporate events A The basic thing is networking Also there is inspiration and motivation to be had We want to inspire
