Startups and less known ONGs are well represented at International Career Festival 2017, along with bigger companies and associations like Barel or UNICEF. Some of them shared with us what they can offer to the participants of the fair and what they are expecting from it.

 

JustKnock! – Stand 27

JustKnock! (justknock.it) is an online platform that connects ideas and opportunities. It was founded in March 2015 by Marianna Poletti on a simple but radical principle: don’t let your CV define who you are.

On their website you can either apply to a job offer by creating your own project or submit your original ideas to the company you love.

Alice Giacomelli (Events & PR): “What we want is to foster meritocracy. That is why, when someone send his or her idea to our website, companies cannot see who he or she is until they are interested in it. We are here to meet young, passionate people, to advise them both on job seeking and as startuppers.”

 

Alphagamma – Stand 16

A business portal for millennials, Alphagamma (alphagamma.eu) is a digital magazine that focus on career advices, updates on finance and entrepreneurship and education opportunities.

On their website you can sign in for a free consultation on your ideas, and you can also download a mobile app to keep you updated on everything’s new in the business and marketing world.

Arthur Gopak (CEO & Editor-in-chief): “The International Career Fair is a great opportunity for us to meet new professionals we can help, and anyone who’s interested in business development, marketing, journalism and writing.”

 

Inside Factory – Stand 13

A startup created one year ago at VoipVoice, an ICT company with more than ten years of experience, Inside Factory (insidefactory.it) provides both digital and professional training. Tuscany based but covering the whole country, they help companies with their blogs and social media management, and organize workshops and conferences.

Martina Giacomelli (Marketing & Sales Manager): “Being at the Career Fair is a chance for us to better understand what are the interests and ideas of students and young people. It is as well extremely useful as an exchange of views with other companies and associations on professional training.”

 

ONE – Stand 26

ONE (one.org) is not actually what you’d call a small ONG. Founded by Bono Vox, singer and leader of U2, at the end of the last century, it can now count on more than 7 million members around the world. Still, the Italian branch of the organisation is small, but growing fast. A campaigning and advocacy ONG, their focus is on poverty, preventable illnesses (like HIV, malaria or tuberculosis) and guaranteeing children their access to education.

Nicola (Volunteer): “ONE is currently promoting two campaigns, ‘Poverty is sexist’ and ‘#GirlsCount’. Last week Italian volunteers met with vice-presidents of parliament to launch the ONE Youth Ambassador program in Italy. We are here to advocate for ONE campaigns and recruit youth ambassadors to support us all over the country, putting pressure on politician both at a national and at a local level.”

 

Lunaria – Stand 11

Lunaria (lunaria.org) is a voluntary association organising international work-camps in partnership with the Alliance of the European Voluntary Service Organisations, a network with more than 50 associations promoting young volunteering around the world.

Flavia (volunteer): “Our association want to inform young people on volunteering as well as promote peace, solidarity and fighting racism. Our camps are an extraordinary opportunity to get to know different lifestyles from more than 60 countries while volunteering for a good cause.”
