Lobbying - Make a Difference in a Democracy!
What is lobbying and why should you pursue this as a career? Lobbying - or public affairs - is an essential part in the democratic process. Contrary to its image, it takes place in transparent and multilateral processes. Policy makers need topical input, and representatives of professional organisations provide it according to their specific position in the market and society. It is an extremely versatile career path, full of strategic opportunities to grow personally, and directly relevant to the development of the world we all live in. Join this meet-up to gain practical insights about a career in public affairs, ask questions and very likely gain a new perspective!
