The post of the competition’s winner Kyril Silin on VKontakte, scored a record of 666 likes. “In the fall of 2019, my teacher invited me to get training on the career4me website. The training was oganised remotely, we were asked to perform not very difficult tasks, and also held the useful and fascinating webinars. At the beginning of training, I was a little lazy and did not understand why I needed all this, but then I “got involved”, so to speak, and began to raise my score. As a result, I completed my studies and received a distinguished certificate. And now I have recruited my own group and went together through training on this site.” (spelling and punctuation of the author saved)
