EADS offers international employability online seminar to European students and graduates

Toulouse23 May 2013

When jobs are scarce, it is extremely important for graduates to focus on skills necessary for a successful application as well as the technical skills for the job. EADS is offering an online employability webinar for students, graduates and people in the early stages of their careers in European countries with high youth unemployment rate. Over 160 universities in Europe are targeted.

The purpose of the webinar is to learn how to present skills and experience in order to reach and engage with international employers, how to define personal brand and how to effectively search for jobs and how to succeed in interviews.

During the live transmission, the participants will gain helpful tips and tricks on how to create an international CV and how to build their own personal brand. They will find out what EADS and its four Divisions – Airbus, Astrium, Cassidian and Eurocopter – have to offer as career entry opportunities and last but not least, seize the chance to live chat with experienced recruiters.

Registered candidates will be connected to a webinar session and live chat with EADS recruiters on May 23rd. The webinar and live chat will be recorded and can be accessed by candidates after the event. Although the webinar is not a recruitment event, participants with qualifications relevant to EADS have also a chance to apply for a job.

“EADS works closely with universities to ensure a good pipeline of talented applicants, both for the company and for our supply chain. We receive thousands of applications a month and not all are right for us but in this time of economic crisis we can use our experts to help them to find a job” says Thierry Baril, Chief HR Officer EADS and Airbus.

EADS aims to hire more than 5,000 permanent employees in 2013.
