UNICEF is the children’s rights organization supported by the United Nations and promotes the rights and well-being of every child in the world. It was created with a distinct purpose in mind: to overcome the obstacles that poverty, violence, disease, and discrimination place in a child’s path. This year, you will be able to have a look behind the scenes of one of the world’s largest volunteering organizations. Get inspired by the employees, who will share their stories on how they contribute to improving the lives of children all around the globe. Afterwards, you will apply your newly gained knowledge and insights on a real-life business case UNICEF has recently been working on.
Jennifer van Beek has recently finished her internship at the Partnership department at UNICEF and is really enthusiastic about her experience at the company; “If I have to describe my internship period at the Partnership department at UNICEF, I would use the following words: varied, interesting, and educational. During my internship, I helped in fulfilling UNICEF’s goals by initiating and maintaining corporate relationships. This allowed me to implement the business knowledge I gained at the RSM in a non-profit sector; a unique opportunity! By combining the non-profit and commercial sector, you are able to develop yourself in a broad and valuable way. My work covered different departments; from sales & marketing to PR. All in all, it was a truly valuable experience.”
