Rome International Careers Fair 2017
The annual appointment with the International Careers Fair, held in Rome, has come also this year with many stands organized by different Italian Universities and international companies. Every year, since 2015, they all gather in UNINT (Università degli Studi Internazionali di Roma) with one main purpose which is share their programs and give new opportunities to young students.
Among the stands many Universities can be found, such as Università per Stranieri di Perugia, Università degli Studi di Messina and Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, that are trying to widen their boundaries to foreign students by introducing new international courses in their campus.
Obviously, there is also a stand for the University hosting the fair, handing their pamphlets about all the courses. However, at the fair there are also many international associations and companies, many of them are no-profit associations, such as Save the Children, Medici senza Frontiere (Doctors without Borders) and also Telefono Azzurro. The aim they want to reach is to raise awareness among people about important humanitarian problems around the world. A great surprise were all those international associations, such as ES Italia, promoting language courses abroad, an academy year abroad and also Summer Schools with many destinations to choose. We all know that the best way to learn a foreign language is to live it in its country and among native speakers.
An other great opportunity is given by AIESEC, which promotes work experiences and internships programs abroad. Students choosing this program can opt for marketing, business, teaching programs, everything that could suit students' greatest ambitions. All these programs can last from three months to one year, in order to give the participants the time and opportunity to gain experience and start their career.
After a walk around all the expositions and talking to the volunteers from various associations, it can be said that this is a great opportunity for all young people and students who dream to work in an international environment and want to expand their chance to have an exciting career.
