Meet the students: discover their path and follow their advice!

Eleonora Spagnolo Capezzuto – Brand Image & Communication at Liu Jo

Eleonora, student of the Global Fashion and Luxury Management, explained how has been life changing to enter Rome Business School, for the whole experience and the job she is doing right now.

Tell us about yourself: what has your pre, during, and post-master’s degree journey brought you to where you are today?

I wouldn’t consider my story an ideal example to follow. It’s only recently that I understood what I truly wanted to do. I always knew who I was and what I was meant for, but I struggled to make it concrete in terms of jobs and studies. I changed university paths frequently—starting with economics, then taking a break to study music—and finally completing my studies in digital cultures and communication.

A pivotal moment was the internship I did after my Master’s in Fashion and Luxury Management, which I secured thank to the Career Fair. Entering the job market in such a serious manner made me realize what I genuinely wanted to do and where I wanted to be. This led me to solidify my career as a creative director, and today, I’m very happy with it.

What are the most important skills you acquired at RBS, which ones do you need to work on the most, and which ones are essential in the world of work today?

On a practical level, RBS provided me with extensive business knowledge, and it was gratifying to integrate this business-fashion expertise with the basic concepts I learned at university. I have broadened my knowledge comprehensively. One area I definitely need to improve is digital marketing, including PAID ADV, Meta, targeting, and related aspects.

Beyond the technical skills, the most valuable takeaway from RBS is the human capital: today, I have fantastic friends and unforgettable memories, especially those shared with people from all over the world in Paris during the bootcamp. I would gladly go back to that time.

Why did you decide to join RBS, and what did the master’s program give you in terms of skills, competencies, meetings with companies, and experiences?

As mentioned earlier, RBS provided me with a comprehensive education. I chose this path because RBS offered a wider range of programs and a study curriculum that appealed to me more, particularly with its emphasis on creative aspects. Additionally, the bootcamp was a significant benefit, allowing us to integrate our knowledge through engaging projects and enriching our personal growth. This experience was invaluable as we, coming from diverse backgrounds, shared parts of our cultures and experiences with one another. I even learned Portuguese!

What do you want to focus on in your work experience today, and what is your career goal?

Right now, my main focus is writing. Since childhood, I’ve always been an avid writer, initially creating music and stories. Today, I’ve realized that my numerous stories and magical worlds can be integrated into fashion, leading me to become a copywriter and creative director. I’ve directed many editorials, crafting the artistic direction, and managed significant campaigns for Blugirl and Miss Blumarine during my internship. I’ve also handled press and social media copy. In short, I’ve accomplished many things that make me feel fulfilled. I am continuously refining my artistic identity and acquiring more practical skills, both on and off set. My goal is to become a successful freelancer, and I am working towards it step by step.

Give 3 pieces of advice to your fellow students to get a career opportunity like yours.

I’m not offering three pieces of advice, just one that holds the weight of ten: “non ti disunire mai” (never disunite yourself). Be yourself and don’t worry about conforming to timelines. When I started my Master, I thought I had wasted a lot of time due to indecision. I was anxious that I hadn’t done enough or anything useful – but trust me, it’s not like that – it’s just paranoia. Everything I’ve done has only helped me have an even stronger and more developed personality, which has helped me a lot to fend off setbacks and make an impact on the people I worked with. It’s important to never lose sight of yourself. Always work on yourself regardless of studies, degrees, or various nonsense – put yourself at the center, be eager to learn and try thousands of things. Experiment, even if you don’t feel it’s the right time. Time is a social construct – you are perfectly in time to do everything – in your own time.

What did you like the most about RBS Career Fair?

What I liked most about the Career Fair was the genuine human interaction. The HR representatives, young professionals like us, engaged with us informally, creating a relaxed atmosphere that eased any nervousness during the job interviews. This certainly allowed us to be more relaxed and less embarrassed, which is crucial during a job interview. Additionally, since it was a kind of open interview, not for any specific position, you have the freedom to talk about yourself openly, which I believe is also important. You can share your experiences in a comprehensive manner and discuss what you think is the best fit for you, your job expectations, and position aspirations. In short, vis a vis interaction is always better!

Why was the Career Fair important for you?

It was important to me because it was kind of my launching trampoline. I was about to leave when a friend of mine encouraged me to wait a bit longer in line, so I waited and then left my resume with Liu-Jo, almost as a joke. However, I was called back by the company for Blugirl and Miss Blumarine, and I started my career journey. It was tough at the beginning, but I had a wonderful boss, an extraordinary woman who allowed me to learn a lot. Moreover, this experience significantly bolstered my resume!
