This practitioners’ seminar with Dr Anna Barrera will be an opportunity to become familiarised with the key skills required to apply for jobs and to work in international organisations – both big and small ones. We will look at the spectrum of possible tasks that are performed in international organisations, as well asa realistic idea of the actual daily work in this workplace.
