Nikita Glushkov_2.jpg

Nice to meet you all ! My name is Nick and I have spent most of my life living, studying and working in the United States before settling back in Moscow in 2013.

I was fortunate to have the opportunity to be bilingual and will be glad to share my experiences and perspective with you all. I am currently working in HR consulting but intend to pursue teaching in the immediate future. I look forward to getting to know everyone at ECC and participating in many interesting discussions.  

The Internet – Workplace and Marketplace

In the 21st century, the internet has become an essential and irreplaceable part of our lives. Increasingly, it is a tool for us to do our jobs, to get our news, to express our political and social views, to buy and sell goods and services. The internet has eliminated some jobs and business sectors and created others. More and more people, such as bloggers, reviewers, developers, and social media managers are “online” professionally.  As always, progress has both good and bad sides. How do you see this brave new world? What is your place in it?

Interviews are a stressful experience, which makes even the most confident of us weak in the knees. If you add the language element into the equation, as a non-native speaker, it makes the interview process an even bigger hill to climb. While you can never prepare for everything when it comes to interviews, nor have the perfect interview, the key to mastering interviews in English is anticipating as many different scenarios as possible and preparing for them.

Master Class "Interview in English: Career goals"

There’s an American saying – “You don’t know where you’re going until you know where you’ve been.” The same is true for our lives and careers – you won’t be able to change, grow and improve unless you know who you are. To find your professional identity, it is important that you yourself have a good understanding of your values, priorities, personality and goals and match these to the kind of career that would be best for you. The questions we ask here will help us in this.
