A Memorandum of Understanding in this respect was officially signed during the Internship Launch Event in Balti

A Memorandum of Understanding was officially signed today, 11 May, by the Secretary General of the Government, the President of the Rectors’ Council and the Team Leader of the EU High Level Advisers’ Mission during a launch event of the Internship Programme in the ‘Alecu Russo’ Balti State University. The signing parties agreed to cooperate for the efficient implementation of the joint EU – Moldova initiative designed to enhance young people’s skills and promote their enrollment in the civil service.

The Internship Programme-2023, being at its second year of implementation, seeks to identify motivated students, master students and recent graduates, offering them the possibility of two-months paid internships in state institutions like the State Chancellery, Prime Minister’s Office, line ministries and subordinated agencies, as well the Presidential Administration. This year’s Programme is focused on the topics of the Negotiation clusters: Fundamentals, Internal Markets, Competitiveness & Inclusive Growth, Green agenda & sustainable connectivity, Resources, agriculture & cohesion, External relations.

The event was opened by the Rector Natalia Gasitoi, who mentioned that the event is very opportune given that the ‘Alecu Russo’ Balti State University is hosting these days a Career Fair for students, and a career in the civil service can be a dream for many of them.

The speakers of the event – Secretary General of the Government, Head of the Rectors Council, Programme Manager at the Delegation of the European Union, EU High Level Adviser on Education & Research – shared their stories of professional development and career, having afterwards an open discussion with the students and answering their questions.

The selection process of the Programme consists of an application procedure, comprising a CV and a motivation letter, followed by interviews with a Selection Committee involving Government & EU officials, the finalists being enrolled in the two-months programme.

The awareness raising campaign of the Internship Programme will continue in the State University of Moldova on 16 May, and in the Academy of Economic Studies on 23 May. A special event will be organised on 17 May in online format for Moldovan students pursuing their studies abroad and for those not able to attend the events in universities.
