IE Virtual Talent Forum 2020 October 8th, 15th, 22nd, 29th - 2020.

IE Talent Forum

IE's Talent Forum is the largest of our recruiting events, held biannually and with each edition traditionally attracting  over 120 companies and 1,800 students to our Madrid campus. Under the circumstances faced in the spring of 2020 due to Covid-19, the IE Talent & Careers team was able to quickly turn around the situation for the ease of recruiters and students: There was born our Virtual Talent Forum.  

This fall, our must-attend virtual event comes back. During this four-dayschool-wide event, employers will have the opportunity to chat with students on a one-on-one basis, give presentations, and network with top talent at IE. On their side, students will be able to make valuable connections with potential employers in Technology, Consulting, Finance, Energy, and many more growing industries. 

In order to make the most out of the virtual Forum, each Thursday of the month of October will be dedicated to a group of industries. In addition, to accommodate different time zones, we will have two time slots where students and companies can interact: from 11.00 to 19:00 CET. 

After the success of our first virtual edition held in May 2020, our main goal remains to ensure the best recruiting experience for our recruiting partners, while providing students with a chance to explore their career options across industries with the participation of top companies.
