After finishing college students often feel unprepared for the dynamic and extremely competitive labor market. The knowledge and skills they have gained through years of education doesn’t add to their security when they are applying and competing for jobs. They usually have the required skills, but don’t know how to successfully “sell themselves”. That is why Technology Innovation Centre Medimurje Ltd. (TICM) is organizing a workshop for students of Faculty of Organization and Informatics, University of Zagreb (FOI) and University of Pannonia in Nagykanizsa (UP) called
