Do you want to face many challenges in a dynamic environment and make a difference for Europe? The European Union institutions are waiting for people who are ready to start their career at the international level!

For the academic year 2016/2017 I was chosen to represent the European Personnel Selection Office in Lublin as an European Union Careers Student Ambassador in the John Paul II Catholic University of Lublin.

During the first few months of carrying this office, I accomplished quite a bit in spreading the knowledge of applying for the posts and traineeships in the EU. I had an amazing opportunity to speak with people of different ages, interests, fields of education and countries.

Taking part in the career fairs

What do I do as an Ambassador? To begin with, I made a presentation for my fellow students on one of the classes at my University, I organized a meeting with the Career Bureau of the other university in Lublin – UMCS, I participated in the career fairs at the Catholic University of Lublin organized by their Career Bureau and also took a part in a special meeting for the people who wanted to know more about working in the EU. But above all and most importantly I answered many questions of people who met with me directly or contacted me by e-mail, about the path that needs to be taken to start working in the European Union institutions.

But it is just the beginning. I have many ideas and plans for the future, so if you are interested in gaining more knowledge about posts and traineeships in the EU contact me and be welcomed at the next EU Careers meetings in Lublin.

Hi! My name is Natalia Wysocka and I have been chosen to take up the role of European Union Careers Student Ambassador, the very first one in the whole history of Catholic University of Lublin, Poland. At the beginning of academic year 2015/2016, along with students from European Studies Students’ Scientific Association. I embarked on promotion of EU institutions, internships and job opportunities. This column will be dedicated to my Ambassador’s activity. Once in a moth I will present my „diary” so you can see closer how is it to work for the EU. I am extremely enthusiastic about our further cooperation, and you?

So, in December…

9th of December

 chełmAnother great meeting with students of high school in Chełm, Poland. I ran double classes with extremely intelligent and curious youth. Some of the students even took part in national competition dedicated to the matters of European Union! I really liked what one boy said at the end: working for European Union must be a dream job. Well, indeed 😉

16th of December

16.12.2015That day I had the very last presentation in this year (2015). The meeting was provided for students of European Studies at The John Paul II Catholic University of Lublin. I found this session to be especially important as I had an opportunity to talk to people who, most probably, will be taking jobs connected with various aspects of European Union.

We had some technical issues but managed to discuss the most important topics anyway. It couldn’t be better!

 

Gentle reminder: You can apply for 5-months INTERNSHIP in European Commission.

Deadline: 29.01.2016

Face a bigger challenge!

kołątaj2Along with representative of Regional Centre of International Debate, we had a great meeting with students of Hugo Kolataj’s high school in Lublin, Poland. I was amazed by the knowledge of so young people! I had a chance to inform them about internships and job opportunities in the EU. They were especially interested in the subject of Erasmus+ students’ internships.

Meanwhile, I had a meeting with students from European Studies Students’ Scientific Association. We decided to work together on several projects. First of them, is my conference at the Catholic University of Lublin. It will be dedicated to students of European Studies. You can find details on our Facebook profiles:

Yes, we have finally started! Since that day, I can officially act as EU Careers Ambassador. After great session in Ministry of Foreign Affairs and European Commission in Warsaw, I have gained an extra boost of energy and motivation. What will come next? We find out soon.

23rd of October

My first, short live interview as EU Careers Ambassador in Polskie Radio Lublin.    My speaker, Ms. Agata Koss, turned out to be extremely curious about EPSO and our project. Then, I realized how many things I need to do to familiarize Polish society with the subject of European Union career.

27th of October

Job Fair at Catholic University of Lublin. There was a great number of students who were asking current opportunities of work and internships in EU. I think it is a result of an intensive Facebook campaign run in both of EU Careers Lublin and Career Office KUL profiles. I could discuss my further conferences and stands with students and see what is expected. Because of that, I gained the general overview of the issues I need to talk about in the future. I received an amazing support from Careers Office at the University and from Europe Direct in Lublin as well.
