UNIVERSITY OF KRAGUJEVAC
Belgrade, 16 November 2007. – Their Royal Highnesses Crown
Prince Alexander II and Crown Princess Katherine together with Prof. Dr. Milos
Djuran, Rector of the University of Kragujevac officially opened the
Career Development and Student Counselling by cutting red ribbon in the rectors
chamber at the Kragujevac University.
At the opening ceremony, His Royal Highness Crown Prince
Alexander highlighted the importance of supporting students and youth, pointing
out that “our country is fortunate to have so many young and talented people who
will be able to take a part in developing the new image of our country. Our role
is to provide them with an opportunity to learn in the best institutions, and be
sought out by the finest experts, as well as to give them a chance to implement
their experiences for the further modernization of our country”.
The establishment of the Centre for career development was
led by the idea that students and graduates must be provided with the proper
assistance in order to begin their professional careers. The Career Centre is
conceptualized to provide research possibilities for job searching for students
during, or after they complete their studies.
This University service goal is to meet all the needs of
students and graduates who are in process of developing their careers by
providing them with the information that would help them find the answers in
order to help them to position themselves on the employment market.
In addition, the Centre will give the students an opportunity
to make contacts with the business community in order to help them gain
practical skills in different areas.
Establishing the Centre for Career Development and
Counselling for youth in Serbia was initiated by the Foundation of Crown Prince
Alexander for Culture and Education in collaboration with the University of
Nottingham and Belgrade University.
The first Centre for career development and student
counselling was opened at the Faculty of Law in Belgrade, on 12 December 2006.
