MEET THE EU: European Expert Career Panels

Image

MEET EU is hosting 8 virtual European Expert Career Panels, aiming to help young people identify and prepare themselves for transatlantic careers. Panelists include European business leaders, EU Member State Consulate and EU Delegation officials, and experts on trade and investment, digital economy, future of mobility, future of work, climate change, and research and innovation. The panelists will give advice on differences in EU and US business settings, training and language in a transatlantic workplace, and how to be successful when working in EU-US relations.

The Expert Panels will provide a look at EU businesses, EU diplomats, and EU experts for those wishing to pursue a European career. In addition to providing career advice, the panels seek to foster understanding of the EU, its economic impact, and critical issues facing the EU-US relationship.

The Miami-Florida Jean Monnet Center of Excellence at FIU is in charge of organizing and hosting the 8 European Expert Careers Panels.
