After Vuk’s interesting and useful speech, the Center for Career Development (CCD) gave a presentation about starting and enhancing your career and gave numerous guidelines and important advice to everyone present.
The attendees enjoyed the pleasant mood of the event and made new and valuable contacts.
LINK group continues to organize socially responsible events
In addition to other projects aimed at helping those who are interested in professional development, LINK group has, for the second consecutive year, provided people with disabilities with free scholarships for educational institutions through LINK LEARNING FOUNDATIONS.
This enables people with disabilities to have direct access to practical knowledge and skills and become competitive on the labor market with regard to the professions that attract them the most.
We would like to thank all those who have participated in the competition and invite them to apply next year. We would also like to congratulate the recipients and wish them plenty of success in their studies and career development.
