Rome International Careers Fair 2017

 

The annual appointment with the International Careers Fair, held in Rome, has come also this year with many stands organized by different Italian Universities and international companies. Every year, since 2015, they all gather in UNINT (Università degli Studi Internazionali di Roma) with one main purpose which is share their programs and give new opportunities to young students.

 

Among the stands many Universities can be found, such as Università per Stranieri di Perugia, Università degli Studi di Messina and Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, that are trying to widen their boundaries to foreign students by introducing new international courses in their campus.

Obviously, there is also a stand for the University hosting the fair, handing their pamphlets about all the courses. However, at the fair there are also many international associations and companies, many of them are no-profit associations, such as Save the Children, Medici senza Frontiere (Doctors without Borders) and also Telefono Azzurro. The aim they want to reach is to raise awareness among people about important humanitarian problems around the world. A great surprise were all those international associations, such as ES Italia, promoting language courses abroad, an academy year abroad and also Summer Schools with many destinations to choose. We all know that the best way to learn a foreign language is to live it in its country and among native speakers.

 

An other great opportunity is given by AIESEC, which promotes work experiences and internships programs abroad. Students choosing this program can opt for marketing, business, teaching programs, everything that could suit students' greatest ambitions. All these programs can last from three months to one year, in order to give the participants the time and opportunity to gain experience and start their career.

 

After a walk around all the expositions and talking to the volunteers from various associations, it can be said that this is a great opportunity for all young people and students who dream to work in an international environment and want to expand their chance to have an exciting career.

 

 

 

 

According to the Director of the online magazine OFCS.Report, Francesca Musacchio, nowadays Journalism is facing a great challenge following the changes due to new media of communication appeared during the last years.
 
Their project, she explained, is a challenge and gives a new and fresh point of view in the field of journalism. In fact, the main goal of this magazine is to experiment new editorial lines and policies allowing young journalists to be the protagonists of their own reportage. This is a new kind of communication that combines several formats and fuses together the reality in their videos with new media, such as Internet and Social Networks. They could be defined as an hybrid, since, as the Director claimed, they write on printed paper but they are not just a newspaper, they use videos but they not consider themselves as a Television programme or a Radio programme. They are all this, and much more.
 
The main slogan of OFCS.Report, “La percezione della sicurezza” (“The Perception of Security”), perfectly reflects their main topic, which is talking about everything and everyone they think is worth focus on. This online magazine is divided in four macro-areas, that discuss International Relations, Economics, Artistic Heritage and Wellness. According to their statistics, 60% of OFCS.Report users read the International Relations section, and they are aged among roughly 20 years and 40 years.
 
The greatest perks of this newest project is that, unlike Television Journalism, there are not space and time limits thanks to the web. In fact, they can examine in depth any topic they are interested in and when they want to. For instance, their aim may be to film or write an investigative report on various topics, as the US Presidential Elections held in 2016. Although their goal is to create a new point of view for journalism, they can not avoid the most important rules of this field, such as not spreading fake news (a real and complicated problem for journalism in our era).
 
Director Musacchio concluded her intervention asking one intriguing question, “have you heard the music and songs playing outside? Did you ask yourselves what are these songs for? Who would like to find out and film a report about it?”. Questions, she explained, led by her own curiosity about the intriguing music. Curiosity must be the main input in journalistic field, since journalists must look for news and the truth everyday and, most importantly, verify it.
