Is there a better way to develop your skills than highly demanding reality simulations and tasks? How could one better test one's ability to work in real life pressure situations than by translating many different topics from one language to another and preparing all kind of information for a wide international audience?

The Rome Press Game offers you the chance to act as a translator or as a journalist in radio, TV or online in a real life setting. What others learn in a whole internship, you can learn here in a few days. You are followed and assisted both during the pre-event period and during the conference itself by young journalists, translators, press office experts as well as by a specialized team of technicians who take care of the preparation and creation of media products - just to make sure you will get the professional experience you deserve.

The project's learning by doing approach allows you to develop your skills in a unique combination of theoretical and practical knowledge. You will get an insight into the dynamics of the industry and the "behind the scenes" work of what we read in newspapers or see on TV. It will you make learn the tools for proper socio-political and economic analysis; journalistic writing skills within the environment of new media; the necessary skills to utilize new means of multimedia and online journalism; the ability to interact with the public and heads of media as part of a press office; the  preparation of manuscripts (style and composition) and how to produce videos, newscasts and radio podcasts. Just to name only a few of the many things you will learn during the three days of the Festival.

Participating in the Festival is not just a way to learn, to develop and to enjoy what you are doing, but also to take responsibility and challenge yourself! One of those responsibilities is to find your way around your team and to be conscientious to your role in it. Working in a team, especially in the media realm, is a central skill that you can demonstrate and develop here. The importance of teamwork in this industry is also reflected in the fact that the best team of journalists will be honored at the end of the festival. So you are not only able to prepare for your true professional life and to replenish your resume during the festival, but you also get the opportunity to enter the real world of professional life. In fact one of the prizes you can win is a job or internship interview with one of our partners.

Furthermore it also requires responsibility to be part of the central information system of the Festival! You will be part of the project where all the information are gathered and where the Festival becomes one. You will feel what it's like to see your work published and how others benefit from it. In short - you will not only take part, but be the Festival.

Rome Press Game connects people, not only in one, but many different ways. Working in the media realm means getting in touch with others. You not only have the chance to meet other young people interested in the same field, but also real-life industry experts. By conducting interviews you also get in touch with ambassadors, UN officials, and other special guests. Although you will only be working in one of the four areas (Radio, TV, Online Media, Translating), you will have the chance to inform yourself in exchange with other participants about the differences, advantages and disadvantages of the different work areas and thus continue your own career aspiration to shape.

The Press Game not only gives you the opportunity to develop and try out your skills as a translator or journalist, but also gives you the chance to learn new skills in a variety of topics - the ones you'll be reporting on and come into contact while working on your tasks. So you get two in one: You'll learn what it's like to work in a diverse, international and complex journalistic environment and at the same time have the opportunity to learn many different points of view and opinions on the most relevant international topics.

You want to take the chance and experience all of the above? Become part of the International Careers Festival and apply now!
