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.

"The challenge of education and communication in Palestine"

How the Embassy of Palestine in Italy is trying to face with occupation problem and society issues

Carolina Zincone works at the Embassy of Palestine in Italy as a responsible of media and communication. In this role she aims to raise awareness on what’s going on in Palestine. In fact she said that: It is crucial to know”. Her first aim is to spread knowledge on the situation in Palestine. The difficult they find in communication is the unfair game of other ambassadors; very often when it is an initiative organised by an NGO, for example Gaza and West Bank, the communication of the other states is strong and direct. She thinks instead that it is important to let people know what’s going on and not to forbid other people initiatives. She said: “The problem is that you try to communicate but then there is a sort of censorship of what you do”.

She talks in particular about education and what problems students have to face with everyday such as army aggression, school demolition and several unjustified attacks, but the main problem is the occupation that causes students difficulties not only in their studies but also in their lives because they lost their parents and friends , who were killed by occupants.

What the Embassy does, is not simply talking about people that have been killed or people that have been arrested, they want to say that the Palestinian people have many things that could be considered, they have a lot to say and to show and this occupation is an obstacle to this , and they shouldn’t be considered only as victims.

 About her work, Carolina Zincone was firstly a volunteer of UN , she said volunteering is a great experience , very interesting , they try to listen to your wishes, try to send you to place that you’re interested in and ask you to do things that you are suitable for. It is really interesting because you are in touch with local population we learn many things and I suggest to anyone interested in the work of international organisations should try to have this experience.

So it is important to know and be aware of what it is going on, in order to find out solutions and to give help. It is important to get information about conflicts around the world and to try to solve them with the aim of respect human rights and dignity.

Even if you find a problem, you will find a solution as well”. This is how today, at the Opening Ceremony of the Rome International Careers Festival, Eva Ratti defined the role of a researcher. She focuses her attention on PhD, a payed training under a supervisor.

After having graduated from Astrophysics in Italy, Eva Ratti went to the Netherlands and was granted a PhD. Then, coming back to Italy, she became aware of the lack of opportunities for “Philosophiae doctors” who choose to stick with science.

As statistics show, only 5% of those who take a PhD continue with research, while the other 95% have to find another job. That’s why people think that there is no future for research in Italy and most of the Italian researchers leave their country to go abroad.

“Staying abroad helps you open your mind to other cultures, share your opinions, compare ideas and work on yourself. It makes you become a citizen of the world. On the other side, it is difficult to stay away from home, having to deal with another language and a different culture.” Eva said. In order to solve this problem, Eva Ratti decided to create a startup, with the aim of fueling the innovation power of companies and organizations by connecting them with those coming from a scientific research experience who are seeking career opportunities in the corporate world. Although society and science are considered two separate worlds, Eva underlines the fact that these realities are interacting and that “the methods of science affect our everyday life and thinking heavily”. An example to clarify is when you take medicines in a certain way, you trust the pharmacist who sold it to you . The pharmacist trusts the producers of the medicine and these people trust the research.

Eva Ratti stresses the concept that knowing science helps you in many ways since its very nature makes you grow a critical and thoughtful mentality. Ultimately, thanks to these knowledges you’ll less naif and more aware of the world around you. In this sense, for those who choose to get a PhD with true motivation and awareness, applying one's knowledge to everyday life could be an added value, given the fact that researchers are best trained to face the challenges of innovation.
