On March 20, EADA welcomed company representatives on campus for this year’s third Talent Day, dedicated to the tech industry. EADA Talent Days are exclusive industry-specific events that aim to connect top companies with EADA’s talent. Alumni currently working in the recruiting companies attend the Talent Days, offering insights into company culture, management and selection process.
More than 50 participants from EADA’s International MBA and International Master programmes attended the Tech Industry Talent Day. This year’s Tech Talent Day included representatives from companies such as Autodesk, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Tech Data, SAP and Red Points.
The event opened with individual presentations from each of the companies attending, including information about professional opportunities and selection process tips. Companies also shared the latest developments in their tech arsenal, including Autodesk’s revolutionary Virtual Reality Glasses, which were available for students to try out.
The presentations were followed by the opportunity for participants to network with corporate representatives and alumni currently employed at the visiting companies. The chance to network with representatives and alumni is a key element of EADA’s Talent Days, providing a space for relationship building and laying the groundwork for success in future selection processes.
EADA alumnus Gianluca Gross, who is currently in the HPE Graduate Program as a Mid-Market Account Manager, found it rewarding to return to his alma mater. “It was exciting for me to go back to EADA as an alumnus representing Hewlett Packard Enterprise,” he says. “Just two years ago, I was in the audience listening to all of these company presentations, and now I am on the other side of the stage. I met so many passionate participants who showed a genuine drive to know more about what we do as a company and the career opportunities we have available – these future graduates seem very promising.”
International MBA participant Martin Keller, who attended the event, enjoyed the opportunity to meet with alumni and companies on campus. “For me, the highlights were the networking session and the openness of companies to share comprehensive information in the presentations,” he says.
This was the second tech-related recruiting event in as many months for many of EADA’s students, who attended the off-campus Barcelona Talent Night last month. The Barcelona Talent Night introduced participants to the tech scene in Barcelona, bringing together the city’s top startups and digital companies for interactive presentations and networking. The event was organised by TalentSpace, a Berlin-based startup creating authentic recruiting experiences across Europe with companies such as Daimler, Google, Netlight and Pepsi.
