EASO participated in the “EU Trainees Job Fair’’, which took place on Monday, 20th January 2020 at the European Commission’s Charlemagne Building in Brussels.
The event brought together keynote speakers facilitating workshops, and over 30 employers stands of international organisations, NGOs, law firms, consultancies, public affairs firms, and several EU agencies, including the European Asylum Support Office (EASO), the European Defence Agency (EDA), the European External Action Service (EEAS), the European Food and Safety Agency (EFSA), the European Investment Bank (EIB) and the Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME).
The opening keynote was delivered by EC Vice-President Margaritis Schinas.
Approximately 900 trainees from different institutions (EC, EP, Council) attended the event and enquired about professional opportunities.
EASO was represented by its Human Resources and Communications and Public Relations units, where colleagues answered various questions on work opportunities within EASO, including on statutory staff vacancies and interim positions, both in EASO's HQ (Malta) and local offices (Rome, Athens, Nicosia).
The trainees appreciated the information given and we received multiple feedback that EASO's stand was the most popular among young professionals.
