Earlier on, during her time as assistant head of the Taganrog-1 station, Kristina Pilipenko had voluntarily spent her days off visiting countryside schools to give career guidance classes to schoolchildren, introduce them to railway professions, and explain transport safety rules.


"Once, after I got promoted to the head of the station, I was examining a railway facility. At a certain point, a train stopped and a young man hailed me from the cab. It turned out that he had attended my career guidance classes and decided to become a train driver.

Now he works as a driver and enjoys his occupation. This encounter meant a lot to me, as I realised that I had helped this man find a path in life and also helped the Company get a valuable employee."
