Opening presentation was given by Ms Andrea Vega, EURES advisor for Prague, and it was focused on summer jobs within the European Union. EURES service is cooperating with the respective EURES advisors within the European Union or directly with employers. Most of the Czech applicants are heading towards Denmark, Italy, Spain, Austria, Germany and the United Kingdom. Summer jobs are mainly in realms of gastronomy, agriculture or holiday resorts animation programmes.

As a second speaker, Ms Jana Koňasová attended and presented opportunities in the realm of voluntary work within the European Union during summer holiday.
