Inclusive Job Day 2019: Milan stage

Companies are increasingly aware of the advantages deriving from the adoption of inclusive policies paying attention to  diversity, in all of its declinations. An example of this trend is the increasing number of events and career days for the so-called “protected categories” and “disadvantaged” workers. For instance, the Inclusive Job Day 2019, which returns in Milan, at the Acquario Civico, on Monday May 13th , from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. The event, organized by Inclusive Mindset partnering with Comune di Milano, offers to people who are part of the “protected categories” (due to disability or other reasons) and to the foreigners the opportunity to meet prestigious businesses, even having job interviews. Moreover, they will have the opportunity to attend career guidance sessions and to talk with the attending companies representatives about job opportunities and skills need to succeed in those roles.

Personal branding and job search: a workshop in Milan

I’m quite sure you’ve heard about “personal branding” and how important it is, mostly nowadays, in the “social media era”, also for those who are looking for a job. In fact, in a time when the demand for a job is higher than the offer,  creating and curating your own personal “brand” is crucial to stand out in the crowd: what distinguishes me from the other hundreds (or thousands) of people with the same skills and experience as mine?

“Personal branding” is important for people with a disability  willing to position themselves in the job market, whether they’re looking for their first  job or wish to find a new one. In order to help them succeed, Inclusive Mindset and LinkedIn (the well-known  “business social network” I suggest you to sign up to, shouldn’t you have done it already) have organized a workshop where, supported by the most important experts in this field, the attendees will get to know the basics of personal branding, plus tricks to leverage social media in their job search.

 

workshop about personal branding: where and when?

Save the date! The workshop about personal branding is scheduled on Friday, February 15th at 5:00 PM in Milan, at LinkedIn Italy offices, in one of the skyscrapers in Porta Garibaldi.

Recruiting Day Verona 2018: a concrete opportunity

We’ve had already many chances to talk about the Diversity Day, the event that facilitates the direct and personal meeting among businesses and people with various disabilities who look for a job opportunity. Following the success of Rome and Milan, this year the Diversity Day adds a new destination to its “tour”: Verona. The city of Juliet, on November 7th, will host the Recruiting Day, a day of meetings and scheduled job interviews among prestigious businesses and people with a disability willing to be known beyond the same old resume.

The Recruiting Day will take place from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm in the wonderful Gran Guardia Palace, in the very heart of the city.  In addition to having individual job interviews with the businesses that will participate in the event (including, just to mention a few of them: Accenture, ENI, Tigotà, Decathlon, GSK, Marriott, LIDL, Umana, Unicredit), who will participate in the Recruiting Day will also have the chance to have access to industry expert advice to review their resume and prepare themselves to the meeting with their potential employers. Moreover, as it happened during the other editions of the event, also in Verona deaf people who will request it will have two LIS interpreters at their disposal. How to request this support? It’s easy: just send and e-mail to info@diversityday.it.

how to register to the recruiting day?

To register to the Recruiting Day in Verona, from the official website  of the event, you can reach the online platform allowing to complete the registration process in a few steps, with the chance, for those who like it, to access also using their Facebook or LinkedIn profiles, so that some of the  required fields will be automatically filled in. My advice? If you have a well-curated and updated  LinkedIn profile (shouldn’t you have it, I suggest you to create one now, most of all if you’re looking for a job!), use that one: “social recruiting” is increasingly used by businesses!
