Yesterday September 18th, 29 alumni that live and work in the Middle East had the opportunity of meeting one on one with recruitment consultants in Dubai.
This time we decided to offer a tailored career session where alumni could hold 20-minute conversations with our invited collaborators from Korn/Ferry International and Boyden Middle East, and talk about the current market opportunities. The 29 alumni that attended could also share a networking moment and meet other fellow alumns while they waited for their turns and shared some snacks.
The consultants had the CV of the alumni interested in the sessions in advance, and this really helped us figuring out which of them could best address the questions, issues and interests of the alumni. It was in many senses a productivity exercise under the coordination of Inga Walter, IE-Brown Executive MBA alumna, 2012.
