Thanks to the Career Management Center a new resource is available to IE! On the Internet platform Evisors, students can access a variety of webinars for free among other features of the portal.
The webinars are 20-50 minute presentations (audio/video + PowerPoint) by career experts. But first things first: to enjoy all the material for free go to http://www.evisors.com/webinars, click ‘watch now’ and enter your IE email address in the field.
Many of the sessions are conducted by current or former employees in finance and consulting. Most of the time the experts will tell you about specifics of their industry, the jobs therein and how to increase your chances to get a job there. For consulting, not surprisingly, there are specific webinars on how to deal with case interviews.
But also many other industries are represented, among them Retail, Luxury, NPO/NGO and International Development, IT, Hospitality/Tourism and Energy. Some other webinars provide information on regional specifics such as ‘Recruiting for Jobs in India’ or ‘Careers in Africa’.
Beyond that some presentations simply provide general advice on specifics in the job-hunting process from job search, networking and resumes to interview dress codes. Finally, there are also insights into entrepreneurship.
To sum it up, Evisors offers a breadth of career related knowledge directly presented by experts in the field. It is a very appealing way to gather information and a nice change from bare reading.
