Career Group

About this group

The Career group aims to bridge the gap between students and employers and to give members insight into what a career in foreign affairs can entail. To this end, we organize events and projects to bring students closer to their future.

Striving to provide our members with opportunities to network with potential employers, we organize seminars, prep courses, mingles, and panel discussions. Our flagship projects are Career Day and the Academy of Foreign Politics.

 

Career day

For the operational year of 21/22, the fair will be hosted the 5th of May at Västmanland-Dala nation in cooperation with Pax et Bellum, Uppsala Politicesstuderande and Uppsala Peace and Development Students’ Association.

 

The Academy of Foreign Politics

The Academy is our annual prep-course consisting of seminars, lectures and networking events during the rest of the academic year. Our goal is to help students develop personally by getting a more concrete picture of what they want to work with and how to reach their goals. Thus, it serves as a bridge between studies and working life.

 

Career counseling and other events

Aside from our two flagship projects, we also provide career counseling, assistance in writing CV’s, and courses in MS Excel, among other things.

 

For Students

Joining the career group means getting a near invaluable opportunity to get in touch with employers, as well as learning and getting used to navigating the tricky web of foreign politics. As the group is only a few years old, an ambitious student has the opportunity to shape the group and influence the direction of the events. Do you want to establish a mentorship programme? Organize a networking breakfast? We want to provide you the resources to do so.

 

For Employers and Organizations

Do you want to stand as an exhibitor for Career Day, or teach students
valuable skills through the Academy? Are you looking to recruit interns, and meet prospective talents? The Career Group is looking to help familiarize the students with your organization, and provide a steady stream of ambitious and well-prepared up-and-comers for you.

If you are interested in partaking in the Career Day fair, please contact us for more information
