Last March 18, 2010, the Career Department of IE Business School organized a workshop / networking event with the Alumni Club of NYC with the theme «How to effectively sell your competitive edge and put into practice your networking abilities«.
We had two speakers at the event. The first was Donna Mastroianni, Director for Corporate Recruiting at Marsh & McLennan Companies, Inc. She was previously Senior Recruiter at Citigroup and Campus Recruiter at Federal Reserve Bank of New York. The second speaker was Esther Higueras, VP of Human Resources at Santander.
Both speakers were very well received and had useful insight for recent graduates and executives currently employed but interested in the actual job market. The discussion covered topics such as how HR departments work internally, the power of company recruiting websites, what to express on a CV, what is considered appropriate in networking, digital networking sites, and advice on how to land your next dream job.
After the Q&A session the group had a networking cocktail at a nearby restaurant. Overall it was a very successful event that brought together many new recent graduates with alumni living in NYC and strengthened the IE community on this side of the Atlantic.
