Nikos Pavlakos

Career Counselor, M.Sc. - CEO - Co-founder

In the summer of 2004, after winning the EURO and holding the Olympic Games in Athens, Nikos, naturally optimistic, founded Orientum with Spyros Michaloulis. Earlier, having graduated from the Department of Primary Education of the University of the Aegean in Rhodes and after completing his postgraduate course "Counseling and Career Guidance" at National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, he undertook the organization of career counseling services of Arsakeion schools in Athens. At Orientum, he started writing with his research team in 2006, the first book «PAME..PANEPISTIMIO", and since then it has been published every year. He is a keynote speaker at Orientum events for students and parents on topics related to career guidance, education, choice of studies and the labor market. His main concern is to coordinate the team of career counselors and the creation of psychometric tools. A restless spirit, he does not stop thinking and planning new projects and looking for cooperation with companies or other organizations, in matters related to skills in the labor market, studies and career training of human resources. He enjoys leading the Orientum team daily and in his spare time reading books and playing with his daughters.

The… glorious summer of Greece, that is, that of 2004, found Spyros in a transitional and extremely creative phase of his professional career.

He wanted to find a way to share his experience and help young people find the right profession.
