[GTech]: Sharing Valuable Knowledge at GTECH.

May 24, 2010

With a new degree in business management information systems from the University of Vermont and a job offer in hand, Zari Bazarian is one of many successful 2010 college graduates. And while poised to begin a great career, upon graduation Zari wanted to take some time off and help others with her skills before starting a new job. So, she came to Armenia.

Zari arrived on May 4 and is spending a month volunteering at FAR’s Gyumri Information Technology Center (GTECH), the only educational institution in Gyumri that provides training in IT technology. With her unique background in both technology and business, Zari is assessing GTECH’s curricula as well as its newly formed business incubation unit in order to give comprehensive feedback on how the program and its graduates can be made more competitive in the long run.

She has also been making presentations on cultural differences between the United States and Armenia. In her free time she’s soaking up the day-to-day experience of Armenian living and learning the language in order to better connect with her family’s roots.
