Minister Tardioli gave a speech regarding job opportunities for the students within the diplomatic field as well as expressing her personal ideas and insights about a career in this sector. She expressed her joy seeing so many young people and encouraged them to start to act and be committed to your aspirations as soon as possible. "Listen to yourself", was her piece of advice. Students need to follow their passions and dreams, focus on themselves and choose their academic path accordingly. Above all they have to take advantage of what university can offer by learning to adapt to new and multicultural challenges and realities.

An intern position typically lasts three months and a basic salary is provided. Interns can take part to different initiatives, attend international conferences and events as well as organising them. It is a chance to show them the tasks and responsibilities a diplomatic has to carry out.
Are you the right person to fit into this field? - According to the Minister, this can be your future career if you believe in dialogue and negotiation to achieve goals and you stand for diplomacy as a rule-based organisations.
