What was your approach in organising the placement?:
Stáž som si zaistila sama. Koncom roka som začala písať na rôzne zastupiteľské úrady, či by na jar nemali záujem o stážistov. Práve s GK Krakov sa mi podarilo túto stáž takto dohodnúť, ostatní ponúkali stáže napr. až na jeseň. Odporúčam teda riešiť všetko s predstihom.
