Equal opportunity is an important issue in all areas of life. I believe that it is also a strategic matter that organizations need to work on. We ensure that candidates are given equal opportunity in the recruitment process and support this wholeheartedly as a team. With its contributions to Turkey's young workforce and partnerships, the First Chance Program is a strategic step toward solving the unemployment problem among trained youth in Turkey. The First Chance Program offers job opportunities to new graduates of second tier universities and paves the way to a bright future. Unfortunately, most employers adopt a stereotypical approach and prefer graduates from top-tier universities. However this Program gives them an opportunity to enrich their workforce by employing these young people who constantly improve themselves and gain experience in civil society organizations. The participants who can take advantage of the opportunity can fully plan their career journeys.
