Building tomorrow’s europe from within


Ever wondered what a European civil servant does? This workshop covers the ‘why, what and how’ of an EU career. Minna Vuorio, Director of the European Personnel Selection Office (EPSO), will give an overview of the unique advantages of working for Europe, the array of job opportunities and the requirements to join the EU workforce. Minna will describe what competences the EU looks for today and for tomorrow in candidates with a focus on the knowledge and skills that fresh graduates can bring to its multilingual and multicultural administration.

However, the presenter does not wish the workshop to be a monologue. Minna will be keen to engage and hear from the audience what are young people’s perceptions of working for the EU, what factors influence their career choices and how they believe they can contribute to promoting democratic values and building tomorrow’s Europe. A highly experienced senior manager who thrives on innovation, you can always count on Minna to share a good piece of advice and encouragement as you look ahead to making the first steps in your professional life. This session will also count with the participation of Miguel Cruz, Director of Careers & Corporate Relations at Nova SBE. A Nova University alumnus working for the EU institutions has also been invited to give some insights to the job and animate the discussion.
