Rome, June 21, 2022. Rome Business School kicks off the second Career Fair (June 17) to help students enter the professional world by seeking new career opportunities with leading national and international companies.
A list of 34 partner companies, 12 more than the previous edition, operating on a multinational scale with present more than 125 job offers from more than 55 professionals from the HR sector: with the Career Fair, the School aims to support students and graduates in building a successful career by proposing job opportunities on a global scale through a full-immersion day of masterclasses and workshops, networking and webinars, meetings and interviews with a large list of leading companies and organizations. The main objective of the event is to enhance students’ networking skills through analysing and understanding of current recruitment patterns on an international basis, as well as offer a more extensive and forward-looking view of evolving recruitment trends within the corporate world.
Participating in this second edition were Adecco, Deloitte, Gi Group, Coca-Cola HBC, Soho House, Oracle, Digital Angels, Valentino, Iccrea Cooperative Banking Group and Manpower Group, among many others, who in collaboration with Rome Business School experts gave students the opportunity to be interviewed, be able to read, review and evaluate resumes as well as gain clarity on how to excel in an interview and how to build a prestigious career.
An intensive day of interviews, webinars, and workshops focusing on the many current and future trends in career guidance and the importance of having good cognitive skills-soft skills-especially in the various stages of building a professional profile that is smarter and more attentive to the needs and requirements of the labor market. For example, Franca Tubelli, P&D Manager Assistant at Soho House & Co emphasized the importance of personal branding “A seemingly trivial detail can be what distinguishes one candidate from another, for me this detail tends to be spontaneity and willingness to put oneself out there and admit any flaws.”
Thanks to the virtuous growth that the School has had in 2021 (+60%) in terms of work placement, during their training students have the opportunity to get in touch with +60% of companies in comparison with the past years, especially in the field of luxury and leading global companies such as Versace, Gucci, American Express, P&G, Sony. With the School’s commitment to the development of “Career Services,” a career placement rate of 97% was achieved, and resulting in students having over 400 interviews with partner companies and being able to hone their soft skills. Through Career Services, available throughout the year, students can prepare a highly professional profile to present to various leading partner companies. Examples include the Career Acceleration Process and the RBS4Entreoreneurship path, which focuses on building and developing promising startups in a variety of sectors. The numbers confirm the project’s positive trend, with 20 percent of RBS graduates becoming entrepreneurs and 50 percent with start-ups created in Europe, a favorable number for the area’s socioeconomic recovery.
To follow up on this edition, the School will also host a fully online Career Fair, scheduled for fall 2022, dedicated to all students pursuing online programs, and with which the School once again makes itself a benchmark for equal opportunities guaranteed to both on-campus and online students.
