CEU San Pablo hosts the Employment Forum of the University with the attendance of over 60 companies from different sectors

On 27th February the Campus in Montepríncipe of Universidad CEU San Pablo hosted a new Employment Forum. Within this framework several round tables, workshops focused on curriculums 2.0 and Elevator Pitch, personalized advice and Networking Open Space took place.

The event was specially addressed to students from the Faculties of Medicine, Pharmacy and the Higher Polytechnic School. The aim was to provide the students of the final courses and postgraduates with answers about their professional future. The event was inaugurated by the Dean of the University, Antonio Calvo and the Director of Human Age Employability, María García.

Practical training to face the entry into the labour market

Over 60 companies set up their stands at the hall of the university to offer information to the students within the context of the Networking Open Space. At the same time, they provided training on the Elevator Pitch, to help them prepare an individual presentation appealing and capable to attract the attention of the most demanding recruiters. They were also taught the keys to prepare an efficient curriculum as well as to boost their personal brand.

Moreover, several companies conducted personal interviews with the students enrolled in selection processes launched through the Career Center of the University. Among them, Repsol, Adecco, GSK, HM Hospitales, BGB Dentistry, Clic Piso, Taiger, Ineco, The Cocktail, Dentix, Apoyo Psicológico en Casa, Arrabe Integra, Axians, Silverstorm, Sanitas Mayores, Quirón Salud, MSD, Fresenius Medical Care, Modis L S, EMTG, Abbvie and Vivood. They also developed several roll plays.

CEU Universities are highly committed to quality employability for their students. They support their insertion in the labour market with events such as this Forum in addition to different job pools and internships and thousands of agreements with companies of all sectors. But the relationship between the CEU and its students does not end when they graduate; it goes further beyond as it proposes continuous training, counselling, networking and multiple opportunities through initiatives such as CEU Alumni.
