My name is Gloria and I am 24 years old.
I have a degree in Political Science and International Relations and have always had a strong passion for the world of human rights, international cooperation and international affairs. Since I started my studies, I have often consulted the carriereinternazionali.com website to stay updated on the available opportunities and on the requirements in the international careers field.
In 2015 I decided to take part in the renowned United Nations simulation Rome MUN organized by the Giovani nel Mondo association. It was an unforgettable experience that, in addition to giving me training on the procedures, the debate and the drafting of UN documents, led me to create friendships, also at international level, with the other participants in the simulation. Friendships that I cultivate until today.
Over the years, continuing to study for exams I have never stopped looking for opportunities for growth and places to learn and practice what I learned at university. That’s why after a long experience in volunteering, I decided to put myself to the test and I joined the wonderful staff of carriereinternazionali.com.
Working for Giovani nel Mondo allows me to test myself daily putting into practice a variety of skills that I learned in my studies, but also to develop additional skills with the careful supervision and training of the staff.
I am extremely happy to be able to live this experience by giving my best because I know the difficulty of inclusion in the international environment and of the research itself of the opportunities that this environment can offer. I used to consult carriereinternazionali.com myself, now you can find me on the other side of the screen!
My name is Sara Girelli, born 23 years ago under the sign of the virgin. A year ago I decided to leave everything and go to live alone, I moved to Rome, where I worked and currently I study.
I attend the three-year International Cooperation and Development course at La Sapienza University.
Almost at the end of my university career, I started looking for a curricular internship to put a little practice into all these years of study.
My desire was to become part of a dynamic group, with stimulating projects, that would give me the chance to get involved, mature on the field and grow professionally.
Almost by chance I came across the association Giovani nel Mondo, I immediately shared their grit, organized events and ideas that put young people all over the world at the center in a mix of culture, education, work and many other opportunities.
Currently I am part of the editorial staff of the web site carriereinternazionali.com, where I have the opportunity to learn how to use an online platform, get to know international organizations, non-profit organizations and much more, in a professional environment but also free and carefree. I am very happy to be able to contribute to young people like me looking for a future.
My name is Francesca, I’m 25 years old and I live in Rome. I chose the linguistic subject for my studies because I think languages are very interesting in everything that concerns them, starting with the comparison of linguistic systems. I studied at Roma Tre and I graduated in March 2017 in linguistic-cultural mediation in Portuguese. During my years at the university, I studied different subjects, passing from the practical study of language (English and Portuguese) to the theoretical one, based on language development over the years. From this study of linguistic change over time I decided to specialize in the audiovisual translation. Nowadays, television and cinema are integral parts of our life and sometimes we passively watch a product without thinking that it’s something translated for our Italian audience. Having told that, I wanted to challenge myself by studying audiovisual translation, I mean, what is in the background of a film, how a film born, a television series, a documentary..The idea that thanks to me the original language content can be accessible to everyone is what brings me forward in my studies. . I obtained my specialization in “translation and adaptation of audiovisual works for dubbing and subtitle” by attending a Master’s degree at UNINT, University of International Studies of Rome, and thanks to my university I had the opportunity to access this internship in the drafting of International Careers. Working in this environment with peers is absolutely stimulating; by working the drafting of articles I learned a technical section which I didn’t know, Web platforms and Social programming. Translating and drafting the various offers in Italian and/or English is an opportunity for me to be always updated about the positions sought by companies and I have the opportunity to apply myself.
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.
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.
My name is Beatrice and I am 24 years old. I come from Rome but I have been living in a town of the “Castelli Romani”, Velletri, for several years. I have studied modern languages at the University “La Sapienza” in Rome and I graduated one year ago in Russian literature. Actually I am attending the Master degree course in Economy and international Management at the Unint University. It is thanks to my university, participating in the wonderful experience of Rome model United Nations, that I had the opportunity to know the Giovani nel mondo Association that immediately attracted my attention because of the great work done in different areas.Participating in the simulation organized by Giovani nel mondo was certainly an experience that has enriched me on a cultural and human level and that I highly recommend everyone to try.Precisely because of the trust and admiration towards the Association, I decided to carry out an internship with Giovani nel mondo. The internship is really interesting, formative and, although I have just started, I can say that I am very satisfied with my choice.
In particular, in the role of editor, I deal with writing forms relating to job offers and opportunities of various kinds, the management of contacts with institutions and the planning of the facebook page managed by the association. What I have known is a truly exciting and energetic world, born with the fundamental purpose of making the possibilities for us young people in a broader environment easier and more accessible and I am very happy to contribute.
Very important is also the positive atmosphere that we breathe in the editorial office, where I got to know my colleagues with whom I share the interest in the work done and the willingness to guarantee our help in achieving the goals of international Careers.
