University of Warwick: LLM student Elina Rage Secured Traineeship
Up until recently, Elina Rage was a student of International Economic Law (IEL) at Warwick, where she had acquired a comprehensive range of knowledge pertaining to her field and gained necessary skills for future employment and practical work. Now, Elina Rage is preparing for her traineeship in Vietnam.
The traineeship, for which Elina was competing with the most accomplished students from this field of study, will make her a part of the European Union Delegation to Vietnam in the Trade and Economic section. The program will start in October and provide Elina with a unique five-month long experience.
Because of fierce competition, Elina’s achievement is considered a huge personal and professional success. In a Warwick interview, she has revealed that she came across this incredible opportunity while browsing the European External Action service website, and feels “very fortunate and excited”.
Elina’s main tasks in Vietnam will be to attend meetings with business and governmental stakeholders, compile reports, collect and analyze trade, investment, and economic data, and information on trade-related legislation in this country. These tasks are aligned with the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement.
As a former Warwick student, Elina has expressed gratitude to her school, adding that her favorite thing about it was “its diverse community”. Her Warwick professors, fellow students, career advisors, and events aimed at enhancing employment were, in Elina’s words, “key for securing the traineeship”.
Elina is looking forward to working with an EU delegation, gaining a first-hand experience of the representation of the EU interests and values on foreign grounds, and exploring Vietnam and South East Asia. We congratulate her on this huge accomplishment and wish her a good luck in her career.
