29 March 09:00 - 17:00 CEST
The ICD offers young professionals and students at Swiss universities a platform to meet with representatives of international organisations and find out about jobs and career opportunities in the multilateral environment. Questions about internships and part-time positions as well as entry-level opportunities and the eligibility criteria will be answered first-hand on that day. Participation at the ICD is free of charge.
70 renowned international organisations will be available to answer your questions at ICD 2021. Information videos and further information on each organisation will be available in advance. In addition, personal discussions on specific questions and topics can be held via chat and video. We recommend that you prepare for these discussions in order to make the exchange as useful as possible for you.
