During these days, from the 24th to the 28th of March 2018, more than two thousands promising students from over one hundred countries gathered in Rome for the International Careers Festival, organized by the association Giovani nel Mondo. But when did this project really begin? And how did it develop?
Everything started in 2009, when the current President of the association Daniela Conte and her PhD colleagues decided to take a very difficult and complicated challenge, which has then led to the creation of one of the biggest NGO in Europe. She used to accompany students to the New York Model of United Nations. There, she realized that almost every country in the world held a simulation of the works of this international organization, except from Italy. As a result, she had the idea of reproducing a Model of United Nations in Rome, which took place for the first time in March 2010. During the following editions, the International Careers Festival introduced other opportunities beside the MUN, including the Rome Press Game and the Business Game as separate units and the International Careers Fair.
The main objective of the association was to give brilliant Italian students the opportunity to meet people from all over the world, share their ideas and opinions and improve their practical skills. In fact, Daniela and her collaborators realized that Italian universities provide excellent theoretical concepts to students, but sometimes they fail to introduce them into the real work world. It is at this point that Giovani nel Mondo intervenes in order to help young people to get in touch with international organizations and find their future career.
Founders also had to overcome setbacks during the development of this ambitious international project, which then turned into reality.
Although Rome is a wonderful city from an artistic and cultural point of view, it is also very complex, in particular for what the bureaucracy and the logistics concerns.
Moreover, at the beginning the funds were never enough, therefore the association was born thanks to volunteers who worked hard to achieve this goal. But not only were volunteers indispensable at the beginning, as nowadays they keep on collaborating with Giovani del Mondo, which can rely on a network of more than one hundred volunteers in Italy and two hundreds all over the world.
But the most important problem to solve still needs a solution, as Daniela Conte declared :<<The greatest difficulty was and is to make people understand the value of the festival>>
Anyway, besides all the difficulties they have to face, people who work for this project never gave up and realized their dream :<< It is an initiative that grew up from nothing and although it was difficult, I would do it over and over again. The satisfactions I received are much superior than the difficulties>> (Daniela Conte).
Nowadays, Giovani nel Mondo is a worldwide association and a point of reference for all those young people who want to enter the work world with the help of supporters and experts. In fact, the association delivers every year more than 1500 grants for promising students and put them in touch with international organizations through the festival itself and the internet site carriereinternazionali.com.
But what really matters is that students have the possibility to meet their peers in a stimulating and multicultural environment and live an experience they will remember for the rest of their lives.
As Jorge Alejandro Gonzalez Galicia, Program Director RomeMUN, said :<< Giovani nel Mondo creates love. It attracts people every year from all over the world because it is able to transmit a real sense of belonging>>.

Daniela Giugliano, collaborarice di Giovani nel Mondo ed esperta frequentatrice del mondo dei MUN (Model United Nations), ci racconta la sua esperienza al C'MUN di Barcellona:
Tutto ha avuto inizio quando Giovani nel Mondo mi ha comunicato la possibilità di partecipare al Catalunya Model United Nations nel mese di maggio. Mi precipito a prenotare il mio volo.
L’11 maggio mi ritrovo presso la sede di ANUE (Asociación para las Naciones Unidas en España). Ad accogliermi un badge con su scritto nome, Czech Republic, NATO, un abbonamento per i trasporti per il mio soggiorno e soprattutto tanti sorrisi! Non conosco nessuno, ma mi rendo conto da subito di quanto i MUN rappresentino un’unica grande famiglia ed in ANUE mi sento come a casa, così come con Giovani nel Mondo.
Il Parlamento di Catalunya ci ospita per la cerimonia di apertura dove conosciamo i nostri chairs e ci si scambia i primi sorrisi, le prime strette di mano tra un “where are you from?” ed un “in which committe are you?”. A seguire, un tour tra i luoghi inusuali della città, occasione per scambiare qualche chiacchiera, tant’è che mi ritrovo a cena con la delegazione dell’università di Marsiglia a mangiare tapas.
I giorni della simulazione sono stati intensi ed il livello del dibattito davvero alto. I temi discussi nel comitato NATO sono stati "The future of the organization in the current international order" e "The stabilization of Afghanistan: the fight against terrorism". Dopo tre giornate di lavoro e trattative, siamo riusciti a raggiungere il consenso e a far passare una risoluzione. Il tutto nella cornice del museo di scienze Cosmocaixa, nella splendida Barcellona. Per concludere in bellezza, la città ci ha regalato un magnifico tramonto in spiaggia come sfondo della cena nell’ultima notte da delegati del C’Mun.
Tornata a Napoli ho portato con me un bagaglio più pesante: tante nuove amicizie, l’amore per Barcellona, un viaggio da sola tra l’italiano, lo spagnolo, l’inglese ed il francese, e soprattutto la consapevolezza che questa generazione è fatta di tanti giovani che sanno in quale direzione portare il nostro futuro; last but not least la gratitudine per GnM per questa magnifica esperienza! Spero vivamente che sempre più studenti italiani vengano a conoscenza di queste realtà e abbiano così l'opportunità di mettersi alla prova e stare al passo con gli studenti di altri Paesi del mondo.
Dalla Carriera Diplomatica al mondo del No-Profit e delle ONG.

International Careers Festival: an all-encompassing international event is waiting for You!
A new partnership has been created with the non-profit association, Giovani nel Mondo, and a major Italian airline, Alitalia, as protagonists. A partnership benefitting both parties but, more importantly, the participants of the International Careers Festival’s 2nd edition.
An airline giant, one of the most efficient in Europe with a fleet of 122 airplanes, will be making a fundamental contribution to the Festival which takes place from March 11 to 14, 2017. During the summer season Alitalia flies to 97 destinations, of which 27 in Italy and 70 in the rest of the world, with 4.400 flights weekly. Quality service, a special focus on passengers, high levels of professionalism, and training and competence of the crew, maintenance technicians and the entire personnel have always been a distinctive feature of Alitalia. On board of Alitalia’s flights, Italian comfort and elegance have always been recognized: menus created according to regional recipes, wines from the most distinguished Italian wineries and, on intercontinental flights, tablecloths and duvets signed by Frette and make-up bags with products signed by Salvatore Ferragamo. This and more is what this partnership is offering to the participants of the Festival, the best deals created especially for them to fly to the capital of Italy, Rome, in order to take part in this one-of-a-kind annual event.
Alitalia will also be a protagonist of the Rome Business Game thanks to the real case-study it will be presenting, which will then be developed during the project. In fact, one of the days of the Business Game will be called the “Alitalia Challenge”. On that day, company managers will submit a business case-study which competitors, divided into Junior and Senior teams, will have to solve with the help of professional resources available. A unique set of opportunities will be awarded for the winning team: access to direct channels of communication to those responsible for business and recruitment, an interview opportunity, and a chance to present your resume for future opportunities.
