The International Careers Festival is a networking and meeting opportunity between brilliant young minds, institutions, companies, NGOs, and international organizations, whose 10th edition will take place from the 9th to the 12th of March 2019 within the beautiful framework of the city of Rome.
This year, in order to celebrate its 10th edition, GnM offers its members and users the opportunity to live a unique experience, the Festival on Cruise. This tour will allow the participants to participate in a pre-event training period on the beautiful Costa Diadema ship that will stop in some of the most beautiful cities of the Mediterranean before docking in Rome for the start of the Festival. The Festival on Cruise course will last 7 days, with training and visits to the universities and international institutions, to which the final four days in Rome must be added for the practical simulations and fair section, all at a very unbeatable cost thanks to the collaboration started by GnM with Costa Crociere. Further information is available in this section.
