On the first day of the official visit to University “Aleksandër Moisiu” in Durrës, Abedin Selimaj, director of the “Career Development Office” of UHZ, visited two important laboratories. In the maritime navigation laboratory, he was received by Professor Osman Metalla, while in the multimedia laboratory he was received by Professor Marsida Ibro. The above-mentioned professors gave the necessary explanations for both laboratories, where the most important part was the internship and expertise that students gain in both fields as well as the employment opportunities offered to them.
Director Selimaj was also received by Xhafer Rakipllari, Director of Administration and Academic Services at UAMD, with whom they agreed that this first meeting was an opportunity to intensify the exchange and services of our offices. This can be achieved through:
• Applications in joint capacity building projects in Higher Education;
• Applications for joint projects funded by various donors in Albania and Kosovo;
• Organizing joint activities with a focus on employment and work practices, etc.
The establishment of a Network of Career Counseling Offices in Albania and Kosovo was seen with special interest by both parties. Also, the possibility of joint organization of a two-day workshop in the near future was discussed.
