Title variants
Languages of publication
As the contemporary labor market is constantly changing, employees have to observe and analyze this process in order to be prepared for developing professional career. Finding own place on this market is especially challenging for young people, who are just entering it. That is why they are looking for different methods to get ready for their future professional career. There are many different options to be prepared. One of them seems to be a membership of student organization. The results of the research show that AIESEC, as an example of student organization, creates a space for future professional career development. It should be noted that student organization members realize it sometime after starting their attendance at this organization. Before joining it, they do not consider a fact of being an AIESEC member as part of future professional career development. Students develop in this organization mainly management skills, team working and leadership skills.
