With a digital format, in the 21st edition of the ISEG Career Forum, more than fifty national and international companies had the opportunity to recruit and make available several job offers to ISEG students, through a parameterized online platform so that the fair was as close as possible to the real space where the fair is usually held – the Pátio das Francesinhas.
The event also included a series of activities, such as Company Talks, Virtual Speed Interviews and Workshops, where contact between students and the business environment was privileged.
Companies such as EY, EDP, CGD, Vodafone, Deloitte, Banco de Portugal, Accenture, L´Oreal, among many others, contacted 1619 participating students and received a total of 6531 resumes.
Here are some testimonials from students and representatives of participating companies:
“We proudly participated in ISEG’s Career Forum 2021. An ISEG with renewed communication – OPEN MINDS. GRAB THE FUTURE – with which L´Oréal is very identified. Despite the context we are in, it was good to feel the virtual energy of a generation that wants to receive a vote of hope and confidence from companies. Freedom to go Beyond. That´s the Beauty of L´Oréal was the message that we hope to have passed not only at TALK, where we had 640 participants but also in the number of contacts at the virtual Stand. The Virtual Speed Interviews will follow on the 2nd of March. A full but pertinent and very well organized agenda.” – Sara Silva, Talent Acquisition & Employer Branding, L´Oréal Portugal
“The Career Forum managed, once again, to open the doors to the Labor Market. Despite the situation we are in and the impossibility of personal contact, it was possible with a virtual and interactive fair, to speak with all companies and clarify our doubts in an innovative way. Company talks gave greater proximity and contact with recruiters along with the chance to get to know each company better. It was a day that helped me organize my future and prepare it. As a student at the end of the first year of my master’s degree I can say that it is these contacts and the effort made by the Career Office that help us find opportunities and expand our network network.” – Mafalda Palmela, Masters in Management student
“The Career Forum’21 was for me the total reinvention of one of the most important ISEG events for students in my position, never without its essential mission: bringing students closer to the job market. It was an extremely productive day that made me not only feel more ready for the next phase of my life, but also opened up opportunities for the current phase.” – Rodrigo Brigham, graduate student in Mathematics Applied to Economics and Management
