Participating in a traineeship with an EU institution is an excellent way to consolidate and expand professional skills and knowledge while learning about the inner workings of a specific EU body. The application process is long and competitive and it’s important to be prepared. For tips and to learn more about what a traineeship entails, join us for a virtual career talk featuring Zsofia Patkai-Kiss, CEU alumna currently conducting a “blue book” traineeship with the European Commission’s Directorate General for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion. Zsofia will connect remotely from Brussels to share information about the experience of applying to the program and working as a trainee at the European Commission.

Location: Budapest N15 Quantum 101 room and Vienna room D-211
