Career Advising

The Master of Public Administration offers counseling and dedicated services to help you gain a better understanding of the job market and your strengths and weaknesses. This will help facilitate your personal and professional development throughout the program, and allow you to create a strong international network with relevant contacts from public service organizations.

 

The Career Advising office organizes the following activities:

  • CV Book
  • Counseling
  • Seminars
  • Networking Events

 

Public administrations and public service organizations have access to:

 

  • CV Book: We assist public service organizations with their recruiting efforts by publishing a CV book, which includes the CVs of MPA participants. It is distributed directly and is available on request from Career Advising. This is a key tool for those seeking high potential individuals, and contains all the characteristics of students as well as information on the MPA and the school.

 

  • Presentations: During the MPA program, Career Advising arranges opportunities for you to meet public administrations and related organizations through presentations. Presentations are the most important part of the recruitment process. The creation of personal connections while still enrolled in the program is fundamental for students and public service organizations.

 

  • Interviews: They are organized on demand by Career Advising for candidates. This facilitates the process, both for participants and for recruiters. During this phase, the office advises you on the best ways to manage the selection process.

The program is developed throughout the year with targeted sessions, each supported by MPA faculty or professionals in the field of human resource management. Some sessions are plenary with speakers or class exercises, other sessions are held on an individual basis.
