International Career Day 2021

The Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA) is inviting university graduates and young academics to meet representatives of international organisations and learn about their activities, career opportunities and recruitment processes. The 17th edition of the International Career Day (ICD) will take place in 2021. More information will follow.

The ICD offers young professionals and students at Swiss universities a platform to meet with representatives of international organisations and find out about career opportunities and activities in the multilateral environment. Visitors can get first-hand information about internships, part-time work, career opportunities and admissions from the more than 50 high-profile international organisations from different sectors that are represented at the ICD.

The ICD is now a long-standing tradition which has grown significantly both in terms of participating organisations and visitors since its launch in 2003. It took place in Bern in 2017,  in Basel in 2018 and in St Gallen the following year. Previous editions were held in Lausanne because of its proximity to International Geneva. 


Participation is free of charge.
