    Ciklopea Summer School 2015 – The Story of Milica Dragićević

    Being a soon-to-be graduate, the very thought that I would soon leave the academic circle and set out in the restless waters of the business world in Serbia can seem a bit scary.

    Professional Translating from a Student's Perspective: the Story of Jasna Subašić

    I started working at Ciklopea last September on recommendation of my university professor as a student apprentice with my freshly earned degree in English language and literature. This is my first proper job and I am exceptionally satisfied and grateful that Ciklopea gave me this great opportunity to expand and apply the knowledge I had acquired at the university.
