First three days of the fair were educational where students learnt how to make CV and how to act at an interview which prepared students for the project. The Law on Volunteers has come into force, which stipulates that volunteering is a part of tenure.

She said that students from Central Bosnia Canton and RS were invited to come to fair.

Student job fair gathers the most successful BiH companies, with the aim to offer an opportunity to students to learn something new and to show what they already know. Students are invited to visit the fair and leave their CV at companies’ stands.
