Hi, my name is Eleonora and I’m 23 years old. I live and study in Rome and I’ve always been in love with languages: I’ve studied languages both at High School and at University. 

One year ago I graduated in Languages and now I’m attending the second year of a Master degree in Languages for the Interpretation and the Translation. In particular, I’m studying English, Spanish and Arabic.

Thanks to my university I’ve had the possibility to meet the Giovani nel Mondo association, specifically through the International Careers Festival: a networking experience that every year takes place at UNINT university where you can meet ONGs, international organizations, institutions, companies, etc.

That’s why as soon as I read about the internship, as a member of the editorial staff at Giovani nel Mondo Association, I’ve applied to: in this way I’d have the possibility to personally create and update their website through which lots of young people can find internships and jobs. 

Being a member of this editorial staff is a really great training experience, not only because you are part of a working group that helps you growing from the professional point of view, but also because you can personally meet different associations through all over the world, you learn how to find and choose the right internships and job offers and it’s nice to know that you are helping girls and boys like myself to find their best fitting training experience.

I’ve started this internship just two weeks ago, but I know I’ll learn a lot and I’ll do my best to help this association meeting its goals.

Do you want to start an International Career? If you want to know something more about our association activities visit the website www.internationalcareersfestival.org

My name is Maria Luisa I'm 22 and I'm from Rome. Determined to undertake an international experience and to improve my English, after finishing high school I decided to move to London to attend a University course and I graduated from Queen Mary University of London in July with a degree in Politics with Business Management. During my three years of university, I tried to get involved in numerous university activities that enriched my experience such as volunteering work, cover roles of responsibility and become president of the Queen Mary Business Management Society and participate in several Model United Nations in London and Oxford. Before starting my Master course, I decided to take a "gap year" and do some work experience, which is necessary for students and new graduates before entering the job market. I decided to apply for an internship and become part of the editorial staff of International Careers because having a passion for writing since I was a child, I wanted to try an editorial experience and because I was interested in the idea of working at a website where are published job offers for young people from all over the world who would like to start an international career. Indeed, having experienced how difficult it is to find international opportunities suitable to your profile, I was attracted by the idea of contributing to the creation of a website that wants to facilitate this process. In my work as an editor, my main duties are researching job offers proposed by multiple institutions, which in the website are divided into the categories of International Organizations, Europe, Education, Other Opportunities and Cooperation and drafting articles in Italian and English where these offers are published. Certainly, this experience is helping me to improve my writing and research skills. It is also allowing me to learn how to use web platforms and to become more aware of the requirements needed to start an international career.

My name is Lorenza and I’m 23 years old. I’m from Rome but I studied Political Science and International Relationship in Milan, at Catholic University of Sacred Heart. Lot of people ask me why I chose to go to Milan even if I lived in Rome. My answer to this question is: go away from my city, my home was the best way to me to became an adult and grew up, find in this way my independency. After I graduated I returned in Rome to find a relevant job experience related to my University course and improve my CV and my skills in the world of work. International Careers was the first website I found and it gave me a lot of possibilities like stages, jobs, volunteering and so on, all in fields of my interest. One day  by clicking on "stage" on the page of the site, the first offer concerned an internship at the editorial office of the International Careers. The offer was open to young people who are interested in the world of non-profit and communication and for me was perfect. I did the interview and few weeks later I had entered in the International Careers team. I think this is a great experience for me, where  I really have the possibility to learn how this world, that interests me so much, is working and understanding what it takes to become part of it. My interest at the moment is to do some experience while I’m working as waiters in a restaurant to put some money apart and while  I’m studying English with the purpose to go abroad for a Master that will allow me, in future, to enter in a NGO or in an International Organization so that I can play my part in this world.

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.

Giulia Maccone, Giordana Falzea, Alessandro Triolo

 

When Paolo Petrocelli, 32, takes the stage at the last session of the Open Ceremony of the International Careers Festival at the Auditorium della Tecnica, everyone is impressed by his young age. After having heard distinguished professionals, among which the Minister Plenipotentiary Francesca Tardioli and the Director of Human Resources at FAO Monika Altmaier, no one would have ever imagined to be impressed by the last speech of the inauguration.

With a natural approach, he humbly starts his dissertation on “Youth and the UN” in front of more than one thousand young students gathered at the imposing conference hall of Confindustria. From the very beginning, his speech reveals an extraordinary personality and a remarkable curriculum. Indeed, his intervention results in being far more inspiring than a simple presentation.

With his charisma, he introduces the UNESCO institution, founded in 1945 with the aim of spreading worldwide peace and dialogue through education, science and culture. He stresses the fact that the organisation was created in war time, when the only purpose people had was surviving from the harsh World War II. Petroncelli puts the focus on the values that the different ministers of education, collected in 1943 to fight Nazis through the promotion of culture, were trying to convey while creating the organisation. After seventy years, the same creativity and desire motivate him to act. He is concerned about the interaction of the organisation and youth and he personally aims at promoting the cooperation among the two.

Therefore, he was nominated Youth Delegate for the National Committee for UNESCO at the Paris Congress in 2011, where he represented Italy at the 7th Global Youth Forum.  The main issue discussed was the understanding on how young people could access UNESCO, in order to boost the change in our societies in a collaborative environment.

Six years ago, his motivation has driven him to the brilliant idea of proposing the foundation of the first Youth Committee of UNESCO in Italy. “We wanted to let our voices be heard from the UN in Paris” he claims, and that is what actually happened: with the implementation of his project, the Youth Committee of the Italian National Commission for UNESCO was founded and the First National Assembly took place in Rome on 15-16 January 2016.

“I didn’t want to wait for an opportunity to come. I wanted to act.” That is the ultimate message he launches to the young audience. While considering the idea of creating an opportunity for youth to be an active part of UNESCO, he has made an impact on the system.
