Career planning


Career planning can be a real creative process in which we express ourselves. The decisions made in this process are among the most important in life, as they inevitably affect many areas of life: family, leisure, income, self-realisation, and so on.  Although career planning competencies are developed in schools, we often lack certain knowledge or skills that ensure conscious and independent decision-making.

It is great that we can continue to improve and responsibly build our unique career during our studies!
