My JA Story: Leading by example at all times is key to supporting young people
Laszlo Kremmer, CSC Budapest – Business Manager in Hungary
“Back in 2015, I was "University Relations Work stream Leader” at CSC Budapest for a year. I worked with college and university students to establish working relationships with students and to attract talent. That program brought me back to the world of schools and young students.
When I heard about the JAM (Junior Achievement Magyarország)-Citi program, I wanted to get involved and work with high school students, to help them by sharing my experience.
