Alliance for YOUth Workshops
Webster students and recent alumni gained valuable job searching insight from the Alliance for YOUth team who presented a series of workshops this summer and fall. Representatives from major multinationals such as Nielsen and Nestlé shared their professional experiences in lively workshops addressing topics such as Job Searching, LinkedIn, Interviewing & Assessment and Managing your Digital Footprint. The Alliance for YOUth is an initiative launched in 2014 by Nestlé and a number of partner companies and is now joined by around 200 major corporations globally.
These workshops allowed students to refine their job and career search using tips given by highly experienced HR executives. This advice including developing a pitch which is a key ingredient in successful networking. It also included how to work key messages and words into CVs to tailor them to the specific opportunities. A substantive Q and A session offered by both workshops allowed for individual questions to be answered.
