A program for employment of students was launched in Georgia.

After that, the volunteer receives a unique code, email address and employer address of the branch of the bank, where he will receive a plastic card. In the future, employer will draw salary on this card. From April 5 to May 15, registered students should go to the employer and make employment agreement.

However, according to official reports, the unemployment in Georgia amounts about 15%.
Despite the officials' assurances, registration of Georgian students, willing to participate in this program, is already over. "The registration was completed in a few days. Interest from students was so great that 24,986 students were registered for 25,000 jobs already in the morning of March 27", Manjgaladze said.
