Hundreds of people joined the online information event within the Internship programme awareness raising campaign, during which students were informed about the possibilities of internships in state institutions: two programmes are available this year, one financed by the European Union and one funded by the national budget.

Inspiring career stories were shared by Adriana Cazacu, State Secretary of the Ministry of Education and Research, Irina Cruceru, Programme Manager at the EU Delegation to Moldova and Wili Apreutesei, EU High Level Adviser on Internal Security Affairs.

Previous information events of the Internship programme took place in Chisinau, in the Academy of Economic Studies and the State University of Moldova, as well as in Balti, in the ‘Alecu Russo’ University, and Cahul, in the ‘B.P.Hasdeu’ State University. Each of the events brought together Moldovan and EU officials who, sharing their success stories, motivated the young people to opt for a career in the civil service.

Students, master students and young graduates have the possibility to become interns in the two similar programmes: a joint one of the European Union and the Government of the Republic of Moldova (with a duration of two months in the summer time); and the national one (with a duration of three months). Detailed information about the programmes is available at and After graduation from the programme, young people will have the benefit of direct employment in the public administration, without competition.

Applications to the joint Programme will include a CV and cover letter, submitted to by 15 May.

The Internship Programme edition this year is launched in the context of the European Year of Skills.
