Career Advising

Career Advising

Members of IESE Alumni Association have included a free session in their annual membership fee, to choose in between the two career orientation services: Career Advising or Executive Coaching. You can also ask for additional sessions agreed directly with the advisor.
This service is provided in person on the IESE campuses (Barcelona, Madrid, Munich, New York and São Paulo), as well as at several international locations (London, Vienna and Zurich). You can also request virtual meetings (skype or phone).
Our global network of advisors with experience as Headhunters or Human Resources Executives will offer advice and practical resources to reach a career objective and/or to design a professional plan.


During the session, the advisor could support you in:
•    The search for new opportunities in and outside your company
•    Designing a long-term career strategy
•    Developing your personal brand

If you are asking yourself the following questions, request a career advising session:
What are my next steps?
What alternatives can the job market offer me?
How do I focus the change I need?
How can I access the hidden market?
How much am I worth in the job market and how can I increase my value?

    Esta sesión me ha servido para tomar conciencia de algo tan básico como la necesidad de tomar la iniciativa en el proceso de desarrollo profesional, estableciendo un plan de acción frente a la alternativa de que ese desarrollo se produzca de forma más o menos espontánea.

    Una señal de un buen asesoramiento es que una sola sesión aporta conocimientos procesables: en mi caso, una evaluación objetiva de mi carrera hasta la fecha, consejos previos a un cambio de carrera y buenas reflexiones sobre mi trayectoria profesional. Es un servicio con un alto valor añadido que ya he recomendado a otros alumni con críticas excelentes.
