During his studies, Timotej joined the O. K. Consulting team in the framework of his practi-cal training, where he quickly assumed the role of a psychodiagnostician and consulting psychologist. He plans and carries out psychodiagnostic testing, various staffing proce-dures and career consultancy. He is also responsible for carrying out trainings in the area of staff selection, improvement of employment possibilities and career orientation. Timotej has been studying transaction analysis under the world-renowned physician dr. Zoran Mil-ivojević for many years. He is currently tasked with the update of our corporate identity.
Timotej began his career path at fourteen years of age at Narodni dom Maribor (Maribor National Hall), first as a manual worker and stage assistant at the Lent Festival and later as a member of the festival’s organising committee where he is still active today. The project where he has been acting as an organiser for the past decade is called “Mladinin Oder” (The Youth Stage) at the Lent Festival. Thanks to his background in organising and attending the largest global festivals, his first full-time employment was in the Pristop advertisement agency, where he was an assistant in the Black Pony team for a year. Because the mandato-ry presence at lectures and practical classes at the faculty took too much of his time, he suspended the organisation of events in the company.
Timotej is clearly against mistakes and coercion in rigid systems, despite him having left the school system years ago.
