International Career Day 2014
International Career Day was initiated to promote the Swiss presence in international organisations, and this will be the 12th edition. Despite considerable involvement in international cooperation, Switzerland is still under-represented in the UN system and in other international organisations. International Career Day is part of the Federal Council's strategy to increase Swiss participation in international organisations.
The occasion provides young Swiss men and women with an opportunity to approach international organisations and encourages them to consider pursuing such a career. International Career Day is the only event of this kind in Switzerland exclusively devoted to international organisations, thus providing a unique forum for motivated young graduates to exchange with the recruitment specialists from the organisations. The international organisations represented each have a stand and most of them also make a presentation. The target group of the event is mainly new graduates and young academics with work experience.
The FDFA is organising the event in conjunction with its long-standing partner Etucom. Participation is free of charge. Further information will soon be published here.
