CP Alexander gives Novi Sad career centre

Serbian Crown Prince Alexander opened on Friday a new Centre for Career Development at the University of Novi Sad. The centre is meant to link students and recent graduates in Serbia with the business community, and help them with the intricacies of the application process.

Centres are open to all students in order to help them to develop practical skills such as interviewing and writing resumes, and get work experience during their studies. Not only do they help students about the business community, they also assist them to think proactively about opportunities.

Novi Sad has the fourth such centre, which is supported by the Crown Prince Alexander Foundation for Culture and Education. The other three centres are in Belgrade, Kragujevac and Niš.

„My Foundation, over the past few years, has accomplished many things that I’m proud of. We have enabled dozens of talented students to continue their educations. We have trained college counsellors for secondary schools, and sent students to educational camps“, the prince said.

„Career centres are a particularly meaningful project for me. Properly utilized, they can do truly wonderful things. I hope that the students of this great university will take full advantage of this resource.“
