Technological advances and Communications are changing the way the world is being shaped. As one of the IE values: Tech & Innovation, on April 17th twelve companies from related sectors visited the IE Madrid Campus and participated in the Tech & Telecom Talent Forum. An event organized by IE Talent & Careers that enlightened our students about both local and global opportunities available in these fields. The event lasted three hours in which the students had the chance to go around info booths of Amadeus, Avature, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Ericsson, MÁSMÓVIL Group, Oracle, Orange, Salesforce, SAP, T-Systems, Telefonica and Westcon-Comstor.
During the event, the students enjoyed the opportunity of getting to know the different graduate programs and open opportunities that the companies are currently offering, what they are looking for and learn about how some companies support their employees in developing leadership skills. For this event, the students came prepared to answer questions like what kind of opportunities are you looking for?, how do you connect with the company vision?, why would you like to join this specific sector after finishing your studies? In this way, they can make the best out of their conversations with the companies and start building strong relationships for their careers. As Antoine Moyroud, IE Dual Degree Master in Management & Big Data 2019 Candidate, mentioned: “Fantastic opportunity to meet companies representatives and get noticed by them.”
This event gave rich insights to IE students as they had the chance to show the companies their potential and also understand the sector directly from leading employers. IE is driving innovation within the campus and connecting their talent with companies that are shaping the sector
