Event Details

Helping students prepare their career paths and find work placements is a crucial part of the student experience and a fundamental value added component of every educational institution. It has become increasingly complex to respond to students’ expectations and simultaneously engage with them in meaningful ways.

The EFMD Career Services Conference focuses specifically on the issues career services professionals face as they navigate the current realities of work, specifically in the areas of: recruitment, job mobility, internationalisation, employability, and trends in the labour market. At the same time career professionals need to be aware and up to date with all the technological advancements that have impacted how career services are offered.

Hosted by TBS Education, this year’s conference aims to reshape the world of careers and navigate the ever-evolving landscape where Artificial Intelligence intersects with the aspirations of Gen Z and future generations.

Target group:
Directors of career services and business school career services staff involved in the strategic decisions of career services.

Please note that this conference is for professionals in career services only: we will not accept third party providers.
