TAMARA UDOVČIĆ, Faculty of Law

During the fourth year of studies, I had an opportunity to do the internship in the Indirect Taxation Authority, Regional Centre of Banja Luka. Through this two-week programme, I was able to upgrade knowledge acquired at the faculty. Not only did I learn about the regulations that underpin the work and within which the ITA works, but I got the opportunity to practically apply my knowledge. This internship provided me the opportunity to meet with the business environment I was about to enter. In addition, I succeeded to get rid of stage fright in communication and gain greater self-confidence in this respect, which will definitely help me in the future. As a Master student at Apeiron Pan-European University, I can only praise the work of the Career Guidance Centre and its staff members as they, year after year, allow us to acquire additional knowledge and skills through the internship programmes, not only in the ITA, but also other public and private institutions and companies.
