The Office of the EU Special Representative in BiH (EUSR) and the Norwegian Embassy to BiH are pleased to announce the ‘Education and Jobs Fair: Learn – Explore – Network’, which will be held on 20 March in the Borik Sports Hall in Banja Luka.
The Fair is the continuation of activities under the framework of Compact for Growth and Jobs. The first Education and Jobs Fair held in November 2014 in Zenica was the first event of its kind in Bosnia and Herzegovina and remarkable results were achieved: the Fair attracted 8,000 people from across the country and 863 people found employment as a result of activities organised during and after the Fair.
The Education and Jobs Fair in Banja Luka will allow participants to learn how to identify and develop their own talents, explore opportunities that may already be available to them and begin to establish networks that may be of use to them in the future.
With the help of partners from Banja Luka, the Fair will present more than 1,000 job openings and offer lectures on a host of employment related topics.
The Banja Luka Fair will also introduce a number of innovations:
Testing will take place for certain jobs and professions.
- Job matching will be done on the spot.
- “CV Clinic”, “Hot Seat” and “Brand Yourself” workshops will be available.
- “Photo Corner” for those wishing to have photo for their CV will be on hand.
After the Fair, an online application will be developed that will map the needs and opportunities of education and employment, implementation of active employment policies, professional orientation, training and re-training, and monitoring and updating information on job seekers and those who have been hired.
The Fair will be opened by:
H.E. Vibeke Lilloe, Ambassador of the Kingdom of Norway to Bosnia and Herzegovina
Dr Renzo Daviddi, Chargé d’affaires of the EU Delegation to BiH
Mr Slobodan Gavranovic, Mayor of Banja Luka
