Working as Liaison Trainee in the Directorate of Human Resources and Finance really helped me to create connections among the trainees, and the constant social and professional contact with them really made me understand that the EU needs young people: we are full of potential and desire of making Europe a better place for everyone.

My experience in the Audiovisual team was invaluable in expanding my skills as a communicator in an EU institutional setting. I had the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in photography, videography, and audio production under the guidance of top industry professionals. Working here is a frenetic experience of learning and reflecting on the impact of communication at every level.

The CoR experience is a valuable opportunity to gain a better understanding of the European decision-making process. Negotiations, policy discussions and stakeholder consultations will provide you with the tools to be part of a process that brings the European institutions closer to local authorities and European citizens.

If you want to understand in depth how the European Committee of the Regions works, then the opportunity to work with the Secretary General’s Cabinet is the best place to start. Get ready to take on challenges and grow professionally and personally every day!

What a privilege to understand the political balances and negotiations from the inside! It has given me the possibility to sharpen my opinion and make it more relevant in the context of growing global issues.

Engaging in policy-making at the convergence of local, regional, and EU levels, I found both professional and personal fulfillment. The dynamic and international atmosphere, coupled with challenging yet enriching tasks, made every moment unforgettable. Grateful for the opportunity to contribute to the EU’s progress and collaborate with exceptional colleagues from across the Union has truly been a rewarding chapter in my career.

The Committee of the Regions has proven to be an enriching and satisfying experience, where my journey has been marked by continuous learning, a deep sense of humanity, and active engagement. If I were to encapsulate my experience in a few words, they would be: growth, understanding and involvement.

I never thought that as an engineer, you could find your place at the EU institutions, especially at the Committee of the Regions. Not only I created and managed a project on my own, but I also made connections and had a real impact among the staff. Along the way, you will learn first-hand about the work of a public institution, and you will experience personal and professional growth in a very diverse and international environment.
