Let’s find out something more about UNHCR:

The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) was created in 1950, in the aftermath of the Second World War, to help millions of Europeans who had fled or lost their homes. Today, 68 years later, the organization is still at work and protects and assists refugees all over the world. In 1954, UNHCR won the Nobel Peace Prize for fundamental work in Europe.

The beginning of the 21st century saw UNHCR help in the main refugee crises in Africa, the Middle East and Asia. UNHCR was also asked to use its expertise to help many internally displaced people from conflicts and expand their role in helping stateless people.

UNHCR now has more than 16,765 employees. It works in a total of 138 countries and the budget, which in its first year was $ 300,000, grew to $ 6.54 billion in 2016.

 In 2015 he celebrated the 65th anniversary. During his life, UNHCR has helped over 50 million refugees to start their lives successfully.

Primary purpose at UNHCR is to safeguard the rights and well-being of people who have been forced to flee. Together with partners and communities, UNHCR works to ensure that everybody has the right to seek asylum and find safe refuge in another country also striving to secure lasting solutions.

For over half a century, UNHCR has helped millions of people to restart their lives. They include refugees, returnees, stateless people, the internally displaced and asylum-seekers.

The Costa Group is the largest Italian travel group and the Europe’s number one cruise operator. It is integral part of Carnival Corporation & plc, the world’s biggest cruise operator with more than 103 ships; The Costa Group comprises the brands Costa Cruises S.p.A., AIDA Cruises and Costa Asia.

With 27 ships on service and 76'000 available beds offered, The Costa Group is headquartered in Genoa (Italy) and sails to over 250 destinations worldwide in the Mediterranean, Northern Europe, The Baltic Sea, The Caribbean, Central and South America, the United Arab Emirates, the Far East, the Indian Ocean, the Red Sea, plus Round-the-World cruises. It is expected within 2021 that 6 ships of new generation will be integrated to the fleet, according to criteria of responsible innovation that is marking a new trend in the cruise industry.

From 70 years, Costa Cruises represents hospitality and Italian style.

From the beginning, we operate with passion to make our guests find the most wonderful places all over the world, offering them the opportunity to explore new countries and to meet different cultures, with respect for their identities.

As the only Cruise Company sailing the Italian flag, we need the duty and the prestige for being ambassador of Italian values in the world and for representing Italy along the destinations during our itineraries.

For us in Costa, the responsible innovation plays a fundamental role when designing future ships and developing onboard experience, that we plan and organize with great attention for details to offer an oriented holiday towards local cultures in order to be more and more responsible travellers.

Since our first voyage with Anna C on the 31st March 1948 from Genoa to Buenos Aires, it was 70 years ago, we sail all over the world bringing the Italian flag with pride, yesterday as nowadays.

We have never stopped. During all these years, we collected many stories: one for each of our ships. For example, the Franca C was the first ship in the world built for cruising. It was the 1957. Time after time, shapes, sizes and design changed and we introduced balconies in the most of cabins; the preferences and the needs of guests evolved, but our values and promises did not change, such as the focus of constantly putting guest at the centre of our thoughts.

This is the reason why we marked a route looking for innovation and responsible development as pillars of our future; as a matter of the fact, we are engaged to minimize the environmental impact over destinations we visit with you, together.

Participate in the Festival and you will have the opportunity to get in touch with this dynamic and multicultural company! Don’t miss this great opportunity!

Published in Other Opportunities

My name is Giulia Brandão Rocha and I come from São Paulo, Brazil.

It all began when I started looking for opportunities to develop new skills outside the college environment due to the traditional way of learning in the classroom, which does not bring the whole knowledge. Students of International Relations have a multifarious opinion regarding the world, but when they meet people who live in different backgrounds and cultures, their overview is altered. As one of these students, I feel the necessity to have an experience like this and participate in international events, especially because I never traveled outside my country. Consequently, the chance to be an Ambassador of the International Careers Festival it is the opportunity I found to be among talented people and students who are promoting and building together an event full of diversity.

Being an Ambassador of the Festival is different from everything I have ever done. My experience as the Brazilian Ambassador of the Festival is enriching to my personal and professional skills due to the tasks and duties to promote the event, such as presentations and public speeches to many people. Beyond that, during the promotion, you start new friendships with promoters from all over the world and with participants.

The best part is the feedback from presentations: hearing “thank you so much for sharing it” from people that did not know about the event, seeing them interested in the opportunity and asking questions is amazing! At last, I am looking forward to seeing the results of all promoters and be able to enjoy this extraordinary event in March 2019.

 

My Name is SALHI Narimane from Algeria. I am an activist in the Youth sector, I am Master student in Finance and I work as a product manager for a pharmaceutical company. In 2017 I started my journey with the ICF as a promoter in Algeria and a participant as a Delegate in the RomeMUN in the UNEP representing Russia. 

I started working on the promotional campaign on Facebook and several social media making also some presentations for students. The journey was not that easy, it was my first promoting experience and I faced some difficult situations but I managed them and I found the right solutions. Then big day came, I took a plane with my delegation and we were finally in Rome participating in the event of which we were talking about for months. I enjoyed every single moment of the event and I decided to come do it again. For my second participation I was selected as a Coordinator and a Co-Chair having then a double responsibility. As a Coordinator I was working with the promoters in the MENA region and in some African countries. We had some online meetings, I received their reports, I answered to their questions and I helped them promoting the event. I was promoting the event as well and I had the honor to share my amazing experience with all the others. I also had the chance to talk about the event on a tv show. Anyway my commitment with the International Festival Career didn’t stop here since I also was selected as a Co-Chair. In this role I had the honor to work with Mr George; we were chairing together the UNESCO committee which was the biggest in Rome MUN 2018. I was giving advices with the Delegates on the Facebook group to help them getting ready and making their preparation easier. I some made webinar sessions for them to answer their questions, doing that even during my work lunch breaks because I think that it’s very important to be there for the Delegates since for most of them It was the first MUN experience so I was focused on training them about the procedures’ rules. The big day came and I met them, I was amazed by their motivation and I saw how the conference made a positive impact on them.

The first day most of the Delegates were shy ,but starting from the second session all of them got involved. They were debating in a very professionaly and, to be honest, it was very difficult to choose the best Delegate since they all did their best. They learned how to speak in public and how to defend the position of their assigned countries. We experienced a very strong relationship which it was deeper than that of a Co-Chair with their Delegates. I felt they were under my responsibility and since I work in the health sector, when I feel that one of my Delegates is sick or pale or feeling bad I try my best to make him/her feel better. We were all like brothers and sisters, we had great moments and we learned together while having fun. In one committee there were people from different backgrounds, different countries and different cultures but the ICF bond us as one big family. I really feel at home and I can’t wait for the next edition to meet the best people ever. The International Careers Festival is not just an event, it’s a community, it’s a family where this big world become a small home. I met a lot of people in other countries, then I met them again in Rome, and I am sure I will meet them again. I made strong friendships thanks to the International Careers Festival and, as a youth activist I think this event helps for a better future because youth is the future and through this kind of events we can spread tolerance and peace and we can hope for better world and a better future because our generation is able to make a positive change.

This year I am the Coordinator of North Africa and I am happy to work with Hossem BERKAN who is my former Delegate in Algeria MUN, and shined in the Rome Press game in 2018. He is one also one of my promoters fo this year, and we will do our best to spread the concept of this great event to people sharing with them our experience. I feel very committed to this event because I learned a lot ,and I would like to thank Giovani nel Mondo for having me as part of this amazing family.

 

See you in Rome!

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.

What are you waiting for? Apply now for the International Careers Festival and get ready to live an unforgettable experience!

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.

 

What are you waiting for? Start your international career with this amazing opportunity. The International Career Festival is waiting for you! To apply, click here.

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.

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”.
