Talent Week 2017

Talent Week 2017

The Madrid and Barcelona Campuses this week put on the second edition of the Talent Week, which was started up by the Professional Careers Service. From Monday 6th to Thursday 9th March, the School received a total of 76 companies which offered their programs and posts in different areas to the School's students.

Four days for seeing the leading companies, their values and philosophy, and above all their job opportunities. Careers technicians and managers from over thirty companies put aside a few minutes to interview 923 students. All of the companies also showed their willingness to receive the printed CVs after the talks they gave, and collected a total of 3,298.

This initiative organised and planned from EAE's Professional Careers Service, aims to promote networking with the participating companies by bringing students at the end of the master's degree into contact with the organisations seeking young talent for their ranks. “Our aim is that 18% of the participants should have a real job opportunity through this event”, explains Carmen Martos, EAE Business School Head of Professional Careers. 

Adecco, ALD Automotive, Altran Innovación, Atrápalo, Atresmedia, Banco Mediolanum, Bizneo, Brico Deport, Bricomart, Burson Marsteller, Caixabank, CBRE, Coty, Decathlon, Deloitte, ElTenedor, Enagas, Europe Language Jobs, Ernst&Young, Eurostars Madrid Tower, FUE, Global Talent, Grant Thornton, Grupo Planeta, Grupo Vips, GT Linkers, Hilton, Hotusa, Huawei, IBM, Inditex, Indra, Juguetronica, Leroy Merlin, Loop Unique Companies, L’Oreal, Lyra, Manpower, MCR International, Michael Page, Nationale Nederlanden, Nestlé, O&S Consultores, Oesia, Ogilvy, Pepe Jeans, Prosegur, Randstad, Recruiting Erasmus, Revibike, 3Schneider Electric, Selectra, Siemens, Simon, STEF, Talent Search, Tech Data, Tonibike, Whirlpool Corporation and Winche Redes Comerciales were the companies that took part in this second edition of the Talent Week. The students attended the Company Meetings and the workshops they offered, making contact with the people responsible for selection and the human resource technicians of the leading companies in their sector.

Madrid brought together 40 companies of the might of Michael Page, Leroy Merlin, Talent Search, Stef Iberia, Madrid Tower Eurostars, Adecco and Nationale Nederlanden and the EAE Campus in Barcelona was visited by up to 36 companies such as Randstad, Decathlon, ElTenedor, Winche, CBRE, Nestlé and Grupo Planeta. As well as the talks, many of these companies spent part of their time getting to know the students individually with brief interviews and group dynamics.

The organisations' talks were massively attended and received a good response from the students. Between all of the Company Meetings on both campuses, the attendance amounted to 2,707 students, Grupo Vips, EY and L’Oreal being those that brought most interest.

The representatives of the companies congratulate the School on its great initiative. Some of them, such as Manpower, Deloitte, Burson Marsteller and Grupo Vips, were returning to the Talent Week for the second consecutive year, whereas other companies like Nationale Nederlander, Tonibike and Juguetronica were discovering the Business School's event for the first time.  “It helps us to present our company and our values”, “it facilitates the incorporation of the best young talent in companies”, or “it serves as a trial run for students, who learn how to develop in real selection processes” are just some of the declarations heard from the companies after their talks.
