Career Advising

 

Welcome to IESE Alumni´s personal career advising service,

In this changing and uncertain business environment, it is essential that we manage our current career and plan for the future.  Considering that our job takes more than one third of our time and it is our source of revenue, it can only make sense to spend time evaluating and planning our careers, as we would do with any business.

The advising session offer you the opportunity to reflect on your current work and personal situation, figure out where you want to go, draw a plan for the future, or work on your personal brand.

Our external Career Advisors provide one hour personal sessions, either presential in one of the 12 cities listed below, or alternatively via Skype/phone elsewhere.
Cities: Barcelona, Bilbao, London, Madrid, Munich, México City, Miami, New York, Singapore, Vienna, Zaragoza, Zurich.

The first session is included in your Alumni membership fee.

This academic year (Sept.2017 to August 2018) IESE Alumni Association offers the option to request a second session with a co-payment of 75€.
To request the 2nd session, please send an email to Bettina Semmel attaching the payment receipt.

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 can I improve my personal brand?
