The career committee is a unique committee within UPF. It gives members an insight in what a career in foreign affairs means, and what roads might lead there. The career committee organizes two programs: the prep course and the mentorship program. Participants are carefully chosen and we work hard to make sure that the experience is rewarding.
The main purpose of the Career Committee is to provide students interested in an international career with opportunities and contacts. The prep course takes place in the spring semester, and consists of 8 interactive seminars with people working in international organizations such as the United Nations, the European Union or the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Sweden. 2 workshops focusing on international leadership are also included in the prep course. The aim of the course is to give participating students a unique chance to ask questions and obtain a deeper insight into what it takes to get a job at these international organizations.
The career committee also arranges the mentorship program. The mentorship program is a collaboration between UPF Lund and the Diplomatic Club of Lund. The program links participating students with an established mentor who will provide guidance based on their professional expertise. Our student mentees gain a better understanding of international or political issues as well as how various organizations work in practice–from first-hand sources.
The undertakers of the Prep Course and Mentorship Program are selected through an application process. To get in touch, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
