At its 10th edition, the International Careers Festival promises to be one of the most important international events in Rome in 2019, involving brilliant students ready to challenge each other in exciting simulations. Are you curious to find out what is the ICF all about? Read the experiences of those who have already participated in previous editions and cannot wait to get back on the game for this extraordinary 10th anniversary!

For many, the International Careers Festival is a unique opportunity to get involved and put into practice their academic knowledge. This is the case of Luca De Cristofaro, 22-year-old Italian-Brazilian student of International Relations at the Orientale University of Naples. Luca has already taken part to the RomeMUN 2018 and this year is also involved in promoting the event among his colleagues. "The RomeMUN? It's a bit like being at the Simulation Olympics, competing with participants from all over the world, with different backgrounds and cultures". Not only that, it is also an opportunity to refine both diplomatic and personal skills, "I have a fantastic relationship with one of the delegates with whom I had the most heated debates and I cannot wait to see her again at RomeMUN 2019!" Luca said.

The ICF has been a stimulating and revealing experience also for Francesco Merendino, a 21-year-old Sicilian student enrolled in the Faculty of Law of the University of Messina who sees his future in the international market. According to Francesco, the Festival is one of the best possible arenas to prepare for tomorrow's work challenges, although the greatest challenge is with oneself: "in a globalized world, if you want to emerge from the mass, you always need to test your own level!". But the Festival is also an experience that leaves a deep mark, "when I came home, I felt downsized: being in contact with peers from all over the world opened my mind, made me realize that many of my certainties did not have solid foundations: it was a great stimulus for me"

Finally, there are those who will participate in the Festival for the first time and are excited to meet other students coming from all over the world to take part in intense days of simulations, workshops, seminars and debates. This is the case, for example, with Úrsula and Yasmin, 19 and 20-year-old Brazilian students the University of Lisbon School af Law. Together with many other students from Portugal, they will represent their university at the Festival. For them, the Festival is a starting point to discover the different possibilities offered by the world of international careers and to get to know the points of view of their international peers about possible solutions to face the conflicts and challenges of our century. Both determined to pursue a career in the field of international law, they are enthusiastic about being part of such a big event "I believe the world is everyday walking towards unification and integration between nations, and I’d be glad to help that happen" Úrsula said.

Giovani nel Mondo has interviewed the protagonists of the 10th edition of the International Careers Festival. Do you want to know their experience? Read the article and get to know them!

This year, the International Careers Festival celebrates its 10th anniversary, confirming a successful record of this international event which allows young students from all over the world to challenge themselves and to live a unique experience in the charming Italian city of Rome. Such a remarkable success would not have been possible without the enthusiasm and the commitment of the dynamic youth that work behind the scene of the ICF. We have met some of the key figures that contribute to the realization of the four projects of the Festival: the RomeMUN, the Press Game, the Business Game and the International Careers Course. Here are their stories and their advice for a successful international career.

 

Luca Marco Giraldin von Lahnstein –Business Game Director, Executive Committee

Successful entrepreneur in the Food and Luxury sector and with professional experience in marketing, managerial and strategic consulting, Luca Marco is the creator and director of the Business Game, as well as a member of the Executive Committee of the International Careers Festival. His collaboration with GnM began in 2011 and since then his contribution has become more and more concrete, coming to the design of the Business Game that this year will see its third edition. Luca in fact wanted to bring his experience within the festival to help young people interested in following a professional path in the business area to understand how "to have the freedom to choose their own future, to realize it according to their ambitions, with courage, dedication and receiving adequate gratifications. This is success" What is the reason for including the Business Game within the Festival? Because in an increasingly international and competitive reality, young people cannot limit themselves to academic knowledge but need to develop soft skills, better if in an association like the GnM. Today Luca continues his entrepreneurial adventure thanks to a new challenge in the United States with the launch of the "Patavini" brand, a food boutique and a laboratory for the production of fresh pasta in the heart of New York. The secret that made his initiative competitive? An in-depth analysis of the American market in the field of food production and distribution, together with a correct positioning in the distribution channels and a constant tension towards excellence. If you want to acquire these competences, the Business Game is the right opportunity for you, apply here!

 

Jorge Alejandro González Galicia - Deputy Director

Jorge is a young professional of Mexican-Guatemalan origins who has participated for many years at the International Careers Festival and this year will play the role of Deputy Director. Excellent communicator, his biggest dream is to give voice to his ideas to create a positive impact in society. The reason that motivated Jorge to join the GnM team is "the opportunity that represents an organization like GnM: connecting young people through the power of dialogue and diplomacy". Over the years, GnM has allowed him to get in touch with thousands of people from all over the world who, like him, are determined to overcome contemporary global challenges. Jorge told to us that he traveled a lot more with his new international friends than he ever did with his fellow students or his colleagues, "it's funny because you would never imagine that someone living more than 100 kilometers away from you can share so much with you, and in so many different ways ". Do you share his same aspirations? Take part to the 10th edition of the Festival, apply here!

 

Alina Barsamyan - Under Secretary General RomeMUN             
Alina Barsamyan is a girl of Armenian origin who has lived abroad since the age of 7 and this year will serve as Under Secretary General of RomeMUN. Student of International Relations at King's College London, as Jorge also Alina has participated in many editions of the Festival and she looks forward to seeing the tenth edition that already promises to be "biggest and better than ever". Alina told us that this year the MUN Secretariat has worked hard to include new committees and controversial topics "We hope to ensure that the delegates collect the best possible memories from this anniversary edition and keep returning as we have in the past", she added. The strength of the RomeMUN Secretariat is the multiculturalism that contributes to making the Festival truly international. "In an era of rapid globalization, we must take into account how extremely interconnected we are, irrespective of global disposition.” This is why a successful MUN must celebrate diversity in all its forms and make use of differences to educate on new cultures, traditions and lifestyles. Do you want to join this multicultural team? Apply here!

 

Shanthi Kodituwakku - Press Game Program Director  

Multiculturalism is also the word that best describes Shanthi, the Press Game Program Director. Shanti has mixed Italian-Sri Lankan origin but she has always felt to belong to the whole world rather than to a single culture. Before arriving in Messina, where she works for a web radio, Shanthi has traveled to England, Italy, India, Sri Lanka and Mexico, living in contact with different cultures. From this experience Shanthi realized that she wanted to give voice to what she had seen. For this reason, she decided to study journalism and join the GnM team choosing the path offered by the Press Game. "Following a course of study based on journalism and communication, the Press Game was immediately the project that I felt most suitable for me," Shanthi told us. The fundamental value of the Festival, according to Shanthi, is to fill the gap existing in Italy between universities and the professional world: "Universities should act as a bridge bringing young people to the world of work, but if this is true for a few universities, it remains a utopia for others ". In a globalized world, it would be impossible to imagine life without information... or the Festival without the Press Game! Do you agree? Then apply now and bring your voice to the ICF!

 

Ebenezer Essilfie-Nyame - Scientific Committee

Ebenezer is a young professional who works with the FAO Regional Office for Africa and is a member of the Festival's scientific committee. According to his experience, to understand what is your best way within the vast world of international careers it is important to follow your passions, specialize in a field and dedicate your with commitment to refine your own skills. The International Careers Festival is the best platform to explore different career paths in a multicultural environment. "Through the ICF, participants are taught fundamentals of diplomacy, public speaking, marketing, leadership, and negotiation. Additionally, through the mentoring from highly accomplished individuals and diplomats, participants are not only able to network with over 100 different nationalities, they also have the opportunity to learn from highly experienced experts in the field of international relations". Ebenezer also told us about the importance of the Festival for young people coming from African countries, an internationally reputable event that offers young talents from its continent the opportunity to be known and to cultivate the fundamental values of the Festival for those who could be leaders of African institutions in the next few years.

The International Career Course  - together with RomeMUN, Rome Business Game and Rome Press Game  - is one of the projects organized by Giovani nel Mondo during the International Career Festival.

 

Within the International Careers Festival and in in partnership with renowned organizations and institutions, Giovani nel Mondo will dedicate 4 days to teaching about the dynamics, mechanisms and procedures which are the foundation of the structured, complex and competitive world of careers within international institutions such as the United Nations, the European Union, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, NGOs, Multinational Companies and Investment Banks.

 

Among the renowned organizations and institutions that made possible last year’s edition of the International Careers Course are: the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, IFAD, EPSO Career, UNESCO, ONE, UNIDO, WFP, Fulbright, Wall Street English, BHMS and many others.

 

What are the main reasons to participate?

 

Knowing the procedures, the selection mechanisms and the paths necessary to enter the world of international careers is as important as possessing a high academic and experiential preparation. Without these detailed information, the horizon of international careers risks to be too far to reach.

This year there are 500 places available for this unique event, where participants will receive a certificate of participation with which they can create their own Europass skills passport. The passport certifies the soft skills acquired during the Course, a certification that will be very useful to include in your CV. All the participants also have access to the International Careers Fair.



How will the International Careers Course be structured?

 

The course lasts 4 days and will be completely taught in English. The course contents are articulated on different themes chosen to guide students and recent graduates towards strengthening their CV in a path of self-definition of their skills and objectives to be achieved.

 

Languages: An excellent knowledge of English is an essential requirement to become part of the intercultural world of international careers, but it is not enough on its own! During the course the linguistic certifications necessary to work abroad will be presented, with a particular focus on rare languages that constitute a real competitive advantage.

 

Soft Skills: Soft skills define personal qualities, attitude in the workplace and skills in interpersonal relationships and are increasingly relevant during selection processes. The course allows participants to develop these skills through simulations, role-playing games and moments of self-assessment.

 

Competitive Exams: Certain careers, especially within international institutions, only allow access after having taken an exam or test. The course will give a complete overview on how to access the Diplomatic/Foreign Service Exams and the EU Exams. On the one hand, the course explores the most sought after methods of selection, on the other hand, the right approach to face competitive exams.

 

Working and Studying Abroad: This area of the course is designed to offer participants in-depth exploration of work and study opportunities abroad, in more or less known countries, as well as opportunities for meeting with experts, managers, diplomats and international officials who will explain what it means to work in an international organization, in the non-profit sector with an NGO, or in a multinational company.

 

Focus on NGO and International Institutions: This module of the Course is entirely dedicated to the meeting with the experts of the sector that will illustrate to the participants what it means to work in an international organization or in a UN agency, in a development cooperation project with an NGO, volunteering for the non-profit sector or working for a multinational company. Participants will discover the main selection procedures and requirements and skills in these areas.

 

Focus on International Companies and Investment Banks: Finding a job in an international company or a business bank is not easy. On average it is estimated that these institutions receive 60 applications for each single place. In some the proportion is far higher. During the course the participants will discover the essential steps to be more competitive and stand out during the selections.

 

What is the best way to get prepared for the course?

 

The Course includes an online, pre-event training period. All participants will receive informative material in January, after the registration period comes to a close. There will then be 4 webinars for all participants throughout the month of February, once a week (presence is not mandatory but strongly recommended). The materials and training sessions are very useful in order to fully prepare yourself for the 4 intense days of work in March.

In order to celebrate the 10th edition of the Festival, GnM has also organized a week of live pre-event preparation period to be held from 1st to 8th of March 2019 at the beautiful Costa Diadema cruise ship. The pre-event week is optional for those who wish to join all the information available in this section.

 

What is the registration procedure?

 

The registration procedure is very easy, just follow those steps:  

The first step is the  application of aspiring participants that must be completed and submitted by the 21st of December 2018, then you just have to follow the automatic steps of the system to complete the registration.

For those who want to apply for a fully funded scholarship, the deadline is December 14th.

 

In addition, to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the initiative, Giovani nel Mondo has decided to offer its members a further opportunity, that is the possibility of following a live pre-conference training course. There will be a series of in-depth meetings both on the practical-procedural aspect of the event and on international careers in general, so as to make participants more aware and therefore better prepared to face the experience of the Festival.

This training course will also take place within a unique setting: the amazing Costa Diadema ship, thanks to the partnership with Costa Crociere. Being an International Careers Festival, Giovani nel Mondo will offer a trip to some of the most beautiful cities of the Mediterranean in the week before the Festival. During the week of travel, it will be possible to participate every day in a 3-hour session of ad hoc structured preparation for the final event of the Festival. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to experience the countless services offered by Costa Diadema and visit wonderful cities such as Savona, Marseille, Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca and Palermo: all destinations that over the centuries have been the theater of exchange of cultures, traditions, history, trade and collaboration among different nations.

For the first time, therefore, the Festival becomes itinerant and, in addition to the Roman experience, interested participants can also join the pre-event training week.

Published in Other Opportunities

To celebrate the tenth edition the International Careers Festival gives the opportunity to all applicants to receive an official Cambridge certification of english achievement by taking the Babbel english Test at a particular and discounted price!

Babbel built a language app that gets you speaking right away, and English is one of our most popular courses. Our language experts wanted to show our learners their true level and help them improve their skills. That’s why we teamed up with Cambridge English — because when it comes to English testing, they’re the experts. Every year over five million people take a Cambridge English exam!

Together, Babbel and Cambridge created a high-quality, low-cost English test you can do online. Are you interested in learning more?

Here are 4 reasons to take the Babbel English Test powered by Cambridge English:
1. The Babbel English Test makes it easy to test and prove your level online

Babbel’s language app made it simple, affordable and convenient to learn English in your free time. Now the Babbel English Test does the same for testing your level online.
– You can take this test anywhere with a good internet connection.
– You can do the test anytime you want.
– An online English exam is less stressful than other tests. Take the Babbel English Test at home — not in a crowded test center.
– Every Babbel English Test you take is different! Each test consists of around 70 questions that check your reading and listening skills — and the whole test only takes 45 minutes to complete.


2. The test is based on real situations and conversations

Babbel lessons give you the confidence to have real conversations. Like Babbel’s courses, the Babbel English Test shows you the skills you need for daily life. That’s why the test’s reading and listening tasks use, for example, images of posters, emails and street signs. Meanwhile, the listening section plays recordings of speakers with different accents, radio shows and conversations.
Because many other English exams focus only on academic or business English, they’re better for people who only need an exam for school or work. Babbel’s English certificate is different: it’s made for casual learners who want to prove their language skills.


3. Prove your English skills to boost your career

Nowadays basic English skills are required for many jobs. Many candidates for a job may speak English well, but how many of them have a certificate to prove it? Like other Cambridge exams, the Babbel English Test provides you with an official certificate.
You’ll receive an official certificate that you can use to prove your English skills when you apply for a job or to put on your LinkedIn profile.
Certificate of Achievement, Council of Europe Level B1 or above. A Cambridge English certificate on your CV or LinkedIn profile proves your level and shows potential employers that you’ve made an effort to improve your English. Currently, the test goes up to CEFR Level B1 and above (intermediate level). As soon as you finish the test, you’ll get a certificate from Cambridge with your picture on it. Like most Cambridge certificates, it’s valid for life!


4. Prove your skills to yourself

Do you remember your high school English classes? Are you taking a class or using an app like Babbel right now? Do you need to know your actual level before deciding how to progress? The Babbel English Test is a great way to check your current level.
Research also shows that studying for a test can be motivating and even help you learn more. Your score on the Babbel English Test will motivate you and give you more confidence. Because it’s so easy and affordable to take, you can also use the test to prepare yourself for another exam or decide how you can continue improving your skills.

RomeMUN will take place 9th and 8th March 2019 within the International Careers Festival, an event dedicated to students and graduates who are engaged in the international careers sector, organized by the Giovani Nel Mondo Association, the same Association that created the well-known website www.carriereintenazionali.com and which, thanks to its commitment, fosters the entry of young people into the world of work of International Organizations.

RomeMUN participants therefore, in addition to the simulation, have the opportunity to get in touch with international organizations, leave their CV and have the possibility of orientation and recruiting interviews.

Finally, to celebrate the tenth anniversary, Giovani nel Mondo has decided to offer its members a further opportunity, that is to follow a live training course pre-conference. It will be a series of in-depth meetings both on the practical-procedural aspect of the event and on international careers in general, so as to make participants more aware and, therefore, better prepared to face with satisfaction the final experience of participation in the Festival.

This training course will also take place in a unique location: the beautiful Costa Diadema, a Cruise package thanks to the partnership with Costa Crociere. GnM decided to offer a trip to some of the most beautiful cities of the Mediterranean during the week before the Festival, where it will be possible to take part every day in a 3 hour session for a proper preparation for the final event of the Festival. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to experience the countless services offered by Costa Diadema and visit wonderful cities such as: Savona-Marseille-Barcelona-Palma de Mallorca and Palermo, all destinations that over the centuries have been theater of exchange of cultures, traditions, history, trade and collaboration between states and different nations.

For the first time the Festival becomes itinerant and, in addition to the Roman experience, interested participants can also join the pre-event training week.

What is that brings more than a hundred young students from all over the world to gather in Rome and spend four days intensively working together? Surely the hope to gain professional skills and access to useful networks, but I think that there is something more that connects all the participants of the International Careers Festival: the idea that we can all learn something from each other, and that our diversity will bring us new ideas and perspectives. We are all human beings, different but so similar to each other, and we know that we all deserve mutual trust and respect. I could bet that all the participants of this extraordinary festival have this same belief, and that’s why so many activities and projects are focused on the topic of Human Rights. Indeed, many of the students have chosen to participate in the International Careers Course or in the Model United Nations to simulate the work of those figures who promote and protect Human Rights, like diplomats, NGOs, and major representative institutions.

Professionals from a wide range of institutions have come to the festival each day, and have been a source of great inspiration; for instance, Giulia Pirozzi, the Individual Activism Officer of Amnesty International Italia. Her experience and success in the field of international cooperation and Human Rights have allowed her to give precious advice both to the International Careers Course participants and to the MUN members. During our interview she has indeed called for more dialogue between various international institutions, and has encouraged the MUN members to develop this aspect in their simulation, to produce a concrete change in the future.

Human Rights are frequently endangered in conflict situations, and for this reason the institutions responsible of handling crisis and conducting military operations must commit to the protection of civil population in these scenarios. Doctor Guillaume Lasconjarias, researcher at the NATO Defense College, has explained that not only NATO is committed to the avoidance of any civilian victim, but is also actively promoting the well being of communities endangered by the war: the Cultural Protection Programs focuses exactly on the preservation of civil heritage and cultural properties, to guarantee that, after the end of conflicts, civilians still have places where to reconnect to their historical and social background.

All the students that participate to the Rome Model United Nations consider the protection and promotion of human rights as an essential feature of the UN, but the ones who are part of the UNHCR committee are especially aware of their importance, since refugees are too often stripped of their liberties, and may suffer terrible abuses. The Italian student Flavia Minelli has chosen to take part in the UNHCR simulation since, as she told us, refugees and displaced people don’t have any kind of representation, and they rely entirely on international organizations. The only way to address the issue is therefore a joint effort between NGOs, governments, and supranational organization like the UN.

In a world where diversity is frequently linked with prejudice and discrimination, the awareness and commitment of these young people are more important than ever. That’s why projects as the International Careers Festival are so significant: they reunite all these young adults, so that they can be inspired by each other, exchange ideas and approaches, and continue their lives even more prepared and motivated. As Malala Yousafzai used to say: “One book, one pen, one child, and one teacher can change the world”.

Team 5 - Press Game

 

Around 2000 participants from 100 countries. More than 160 promoters from all over the world. 4 different simulations, seminars and many workshops for young people to chose from in order to develop further knowledge and gain insights in the fields of economics, politics and international relations, communication and journalism. The Executive Director of the association in charge of the organisation and planning of the Festival, Daniela Conte, proclaimed at her speech in the opening ceremony on the 24th of sarch at LUISS Guido Carli University of Rome, that this festival can be seen as “a journey of friendship, opportunities, challenges, hope and inspiration”. But what does the festival stand for exactly?

 

For the ninth time this year, young people from all around the world come to the “eternal city” of Rome to participate on the International Careers Festival 2018 from the 24th of March until the 27th of March 2018.The Festival, which has been initiated by the non-profit organisation Giovani nel Mondo with the RomeMUN in 2009 and later developed as it is today, stands for cosmopolitanism and interculturality.The whole festival consits in the RomeMUN, the Rome Business Game, the Rome Press Game and the International Careers Course.

In the Rome Model United Nations delegates have to represent a specific country in a committee, which has been assigned to each of the delegates before. The 10 committees deal with topics, for instance migration policy in Europe, quality education, the situation of refugees in the world and possible interventions to ensure global security by the nuclear disarmament. Besides, prestigious speakers are invited to present speeches regarding these various topics; for instance: Ambassadors, professors of the Rome University of International Studies.

Interculturalism and internationally are relevant topics  in the Rome Buisiness Game, too. The Program Director, Luca Marco Giraldin Von Lahnstein, welcomed 1000 participants this year. Economists-to-be can exercise themselves in learning more about economic strategies, leading companies and resolving economical and political difficulties within a current expanding world. Hereby, the interest for intercultural issues, on which the whole festival stands for, can further be stimulated. The connection between economy and culture helps to widen one’s own horizon and opens the access to a cross-cultural and cross-cutting knowledge.

The Rome Press Game is the third simulation and focuses on journalism, international communication, interpretation and translation. Thus, the participants are asked to report on the International Careers Festival and write appropriate articles, record radio-broadcasts, and create and edit videos. During her speech at the opening ceremony, the Program Director of the Press Game, Shanti Kodituwakku Hettiarachchilage underlined the possibility to gain the so called soft skills which can only be developed in a multicultural environment while creating also interpersonal relationships.

Gaining international experiences, simulating the real working life, challenging oneself and testing one’s boundaries, improving one’s ability to work in a team, getting to know new people from different cultures- these are just some of the answers participants gave regarding their motivation to participate at the International Careers Festival.

Also the International Careers Fair, which is accompanied by 44 exhibitors, takes place at the Rome University of International Studies on Monday the 26th of March and Tuesday the 27th.

Within the fair, mock interviews, workshops, CV reviews and recruitment sessions are offered by the companies which take part, including "global players" like LIDL, UNICEF and UNESCO Giovani.

Through a wide range of tasks, the international level of participants, organisers and topics stress the original idea of the Festival to be an occasion where talent meets opportunity.

 

 

 

Eva Münster – Rome Press Game – Team 2

Delegates from around the world travel to Rome to participate in a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

The 2018 International Careers Festival commenced in the opening ceremony at 10am on Saturday the 24th of March. Over 300 delegates attended, participants in the upcoming conference, which will take place over the course of this weekend. The event was hosted at LUISS Guido Carli University and sponsored by the Giovani nel Mondo Association.

After some welcome remarks led by Hon. Cristiana Paciocco, Vice President of the Committee for Welfare and Health, and Dr. Fabio Bisogni of UNINT University, the Executive Director of the Rome International Careers Festival (RICF), Dr. Daniela Conte shared her reflections of the past and thoughts on the future. In her speech about RICF, Dr. Conte stated, “everything is a journey,” emphasizing the opportunities the three realms of the conference represent for proactive delegates.

Next, each program director introduced their personal philosophies and the natures of their programs. Dr. Luca Marco Giraldin von Lahnstein presented the Business Game as an incredible opportunity for young entrepreneurs. He described how businesspeople often alienate the idea of success from the ideas of resilience and failure; “we must be able to think outside the box,” in order to take full advantage of the opportunities before them. The Business Game is a simulation that allows young participants to learn from past challenges using real life business cases to gain managerial decision-making skills applicable in the business world today.

Shanthi Kodituwakku Hettiarachchilage, the director of the Press Game, followed the Business Game introduction, how the RICF prepares delegates for real world situations. She highlighted the widespread value of participating in the RICF, bringing to light the great things from all aspects of the festival. The Press Game incorporates training and “learn by doing” simulations in radio, television, and web journalism, giving students a broad understanding of the multidisciplinary industry.

The final program, the Model United Nations (ROMEMUN), was introduced by Secretary General Jorge Alejandro Gonzalez Galicia. The ROMEMUN was the foundation of the RICF, and its model of learning through simulation is the connecting value through the three programs. ROMEMUN allows delegates to learn the art of diplomacy by debating world issues and developing public speaking skills that they can use in any professional sphere. He encouraged delegates to carry these skills from their committee sessions to their outside lives, explaining that, “we as brothers of mankind, have to fight for something, because somewhere, someone needs you.”

This moving final statement set the stage for Mr. Gianni Ferrario, a Happiness Trainer, to unite delegates in movement, sound, and laughter. This inspirational presentation, complete with meditation, visualization, and balloons, left delegates feeling cheerful and excited to take charge of their futures, starting here, at the RICF.
