Career services help students explore career opportunities and learn how to become the best possible marketable job candidates.
Participate in all activities proposed
Going to company presentations or self-selling techniques workshop may sound boresome, but it could make all the difference.
Even the best career services cannot guarantee that you will get a job, but they can give you opportunities to meet recruiters and discover jobs. These could range from career days, networking events, career coaching from industry head-hunters, or study trips to London, Milan, or Paris to meet Top Managers and HR teams.
Do not neglect career workshops either. IUM regularly organizes training days on several topics, which range from how to brand yourself to employers to perfecting your networking or interview techniques. Whatever the focus, you will learn something valuable for your future.
Don’t wait until senior year
Many students lose out on job opportunities because they don’t realize the enormous amount of help they can receive from a good career services team, from day one of their studies right up until graduation.
“All students benefit from a large range of career services and corporate relations activities, supporting their career goal clarification as well as their job search strategies. Specific career seminars are organized, professional guest lecturers are welcomed and career days support our 750 students to find their internships and future jobs,” said Sophie de Lorenzo, Director of Career & Corporate Relations
Career guidance and “One-to-One” Meeting
Career centers typically provide career or personality assessments that serve as a good gauge for which careers or workplaces are well suited for each student. For many students, it is helpful to have advice from someone objective. The Career Services Team helps students to identify their strengths and encourage them to pursue their passions.
The other kind of career guidance is when a student has no idea what they want to do with their lives. A career counselor can help students broaden career opportunities but also talk about job interests. Sometimes they can recommend courses that will help students cement or redefine career goals. Then, Career services can guide these students into majors or careers they may not be familiar with, and help formulate a plan to achieve those goals.
Network, Network, Network!
All business schools are partnering with companies. Find out whether your business school has any corporate partners you’d like to work for and, if so, whether they’re recruiting on your campus at one point of the year.
Every year, IUM welcomes around 150 companies and top recruiters including UBS, Pumas, Deloitte, Hotel Hermitage, Gucci, PWC, Ferrari, Barclays, Camper & Nicholsons, KPMG, Y.CO, Banque Privée Edmond de Rothschild, and Vuitton, to name a few.
Beyond access to specific job opportunities, IUM works closely with recruiters and businesses to advise students on how to prepare for the individual recruitment processes of international companies.
Career Services also advertise regular-updated job listings on their intranet.
Mentorship opportunities from alumni
Networking is not only what helps most people land after graduation jobs, but it’s also what allows students to gain internships and to open more career opportunities. A student spends a couple of hours with a professional in their field and asks questions. When the professional is an alumnus, the connection can be stronger and result in even more opportunities for internships and mentoring. A mentor can guide you and answer career questions throughout your career.
