AL Lavoro 2016, starting in Milan
More than 4300 meetings between University graduates and human resources managers during the Al Lavoro (At Work) Milan day, the first phase of AlmaLaurea’s Career Day Tour.
During the day at Palazzo delle Stelline, candidates met human resources managers from 40 participating companies including Apple, Automobili Lamborghini, Estée Lauder, Allianz Tetra Pak, Deloitte, Benetton Group, Lidl Italia, Terna, Electrolux, Medtronic, BNP Paribas, Banco Popolare, Reply, Italdesign Giugiaro, and Indra.
Thanks to the event management module of M.I.T.O. (Matching Italian Talent Organizer) set up by AlmaLaurea, each company invited to their stands candidates whose curriculums were most in line with the profiles they were seeking, for an introductory meeting, to get to know each other. Graduates showed up at the stands with a smart profile, a personalized invitation, for a brief meeting.
“AlmaLaurea’s commitment to connect graduates with the working world is moving forward,” says Marco De Candido, managing director of AlmaLaurea Srl. “A career day developed to respond to the needs of both companies and candidates, starting from Milan, a city characterized by the presence of graduates from all over the country.”
Maria Elisa Berselli, Tetra Pak Recruitment Specialist, explains that “We are looking for people in line with our needs, with a solid background and specific technical expertise. That’s why we chose M.I.T.O. and AlmaLaurea.” Ilaria Cinelli, Italian screening and recruitment manager says, ”We are a technological reality and we are here to look for motivated, talented, and curious engineers. AlmaLaurea helps us find talent all over Italy.”
“We reward people who want to gain international experience, we look for people that know how to work in a team,” explains Laura Galliani, Tyseenkrupp personnel manager. “This event is very positive because it allows us to dedicate several minutes to the candidate, to get to know and meet the person. “
“Highly technical profiles, a strong sense of savoir faire, and a lot of desire to learn,” notes Rosita Curti, Monte dei Paschi di Siena’s human resource manager. “Emphasizing people’s merits is the main concept to keep in mind. AlmaLaurea is an important and fundamental service thanks to an updated database through which we can select the desired profiles.”
Many young graduates in search of opportunities showed up: “Having a smart profile accelerates meeting with companies and talking to their HR managers,” says Clara Lovato, 23, business degree. “I find this tool very useful, allowing me to directly contact HR managers rather than just emailing a curriculum.”
