“We are offering an opportunity to young and talented people, and we want to reward the excellent ones through possibility to get their first job in a modern factory in Bosnia and Herzegovina that operates according to European standards. I want to emphasize that the main criteria of the competition will be the grade average, participation in professional projects, professor’s recommendations, knowledge of English and residence in the Municipality of Lukavac.
