First round interviews commence!

It’s that time of year when the atmosphere on campus starts to get tense. Graduation is just three months away and the first round of interviews is beginning.

Today started with a Career Fair, where MBAs get to talk to various companies on campus about potential openings and possibilities, and eventually set up an interview for a more in-depth discussion.

Over the next couple of weeks, there are no classes as the focus of the whole class will be on preparing for and completing interviews with their dream companies. As always, we wish them luck!

Practical also when your children and family are courageously waiting home in Lausanne! Continue reading “The Power of Connected – Honeywell CEP”
