Croatians eye EU jobs ahead of joining bloc

With over 300,000 jobless people, some are excited about new prospects when the country joins the EU.

    On July 1, Croatia will become the 28th member of the European Union, which will open up employment prospects for hundreds of thousands of job-seekers.

    With low salaries being offered at home, and high competition, Croatia has one of the worst unemployment rates in the region.
