The event is sponsored by such well-admired organizations as the Presidency of the Council of Ministers, the UN agencies of IFAD – World Food Programme – ILO, the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, the Unione Forense dei Diritti Umani and the Regione Lazio.

Designed by the Giovani nel Mondo Association, The International Careers Festival aims to support young people who want to choose international careers as diplomats, communications experts, journalists, or managers and executives in an international business environment.

One festival, plenty of opportunities

During the International Careers Festival, you will meet young people from around the world, and get to know representatives from international institutions, companies, NGOs, and mass media.

250 scholarships are available, thanks to the invaluable contribution of our generous sponsors – Università degli Studi Internazionali di Roma (UNINT), Vueling and Wall Street English.

Four projects to launch your international career

All participants at the Festival have an option to work on one of the 4 projects:

ROME MODEL UNITED NATIONS

Simulation of the United Nations, perfect for students of international relations, political science, and law. Many exotic destinations are available this year for the RomeMUN’s best participants thanks to the numerous partnerships with other simulation conferences around the world.

ROME BUSINESS GAME

Simulation of business case studies, suitable for economics, engineering, marketing, and IT students.

The best participating team will be offered internships at well-known multinational companies.

ROME PRESS GAME

Simulation of newspaper, web, radio and television activities, suitable for students in communication, interpretation and translation, letters and philosophy.

During the course of 4 days, participants will interact with journalists to design a broadcasting product.

INTERNATIONAL CAREERS COURSE

Practical orientation course to international careers, suitable for students of all disciplines.

It allows participants to build an extensive network of contacts with international institutions and NGOs, present at the Festival, and access various career opportunities.

International Career Fair – meet directly with industry experts

During the Festival, you will get an opportunity to visit an exhibition section – the International Career Fair – a spacious open area where you will have a chance to showcase your project and meet representatives from corporations, government institutions, universities, NGOs, and the media.

The Fair will be divided into a training area and a working area, open for young people who want to meet with industry experts either for a master-class on specific topics, or career opportunities such as internships or graduate programs at international companies, government institutions, and NGOs.

During the Fair, you can also leave your CV and meet recruiters, who will conduct on-site interviews and interview simulations from their respective organizations.

Do not miss your chance of meeting and networking with industry experts and talented young professionals – like yourself –  in a world of opportunities!
