INTERNATIONAL CAREERS COURSE - A guidance course filled with practical workshops for a successful international career. Recommended for students from any faculty/academic background.

There are a limited number of places for all four projects. In order to participate, you must complete the application form and pass the selection process.

Furthermore, the Festival has an area which is entirely open to the public: the International Careers Fair. The Fair is a large exhibition area open to both participants and the public alike. It will be divided into two different sections: the education/university area and the work/internship area. It favours the interaction between thousands of students, whether they are looking for study/training/internship/work opportunities, and industry experts.

The International Careers Festival projects are quite complex and articulate, therefore it is important to carry out a pre-event preparation in order to favor an adequate participation. And this year, for the 10th anniversary, GnM decided to offer its members a special further opportunity to follow a live training course pre-conference. It will include a series of enhancement meetings both on the practical-procedural aspects of the event and on international careers in general, so as to make participants more aware and therefore better prepared to face the final experience of the participation in the Festival with great satisfaction.

Thanks to the partnership established between GnM and Costa Crociere, this training course will take place within a unique setting: the beautiful Costa Diadema ship. Being an International Careers Festival, GnM decided to propose a trip to some of the most beautiful cities of the Mediterranean within the week before the Festival, during which it will be possible to participate every day in a 3-hour session of structured preparation for the Festival. In addition, participants will have an opportunity to experience the countless services offered by Costa Diadema and visit marvelous cities such as: Savona-Marseille-Barcelona-Palma de Mallorca and Palermo, all destinations that have been the scene of the exchange of cultures, traditions, history, trade and collaboration between states and different nations.

For the first time, therefore, the Festival becomes itinerant and, in addition to the Roman experience, all the interested participants can also join the pre-event training week.
