Bocconi aims to provide students with a truly international education with superior access to the job market by combining real-world application and theory. Bocconi is a trusted Symplicity partner, enhancing its students’ employability through its dedicated view and user experience for alumni and employer relations features which “proved to be extremely useful,” said Alessio Cardinale (Internships coordinator, Markets & Partners).
Bocconi initially adopted Symplicity CSM for CV Books and to streamline processes, but in the last two years, has expanded its utilisation of CSM, predominately with the addition of virtual career fairs.
Bocconi hosted six virtual career fairs during the 2020-2021 academic year, each focused on a particular industry sector. With over 38 employers attending each event, student involvement has been high. CSM queuing system that makes it easy for one-on-one interactions between employer and student during a virtual fair, along with the UX design of the platform that is easy to navigate for all parties.
CSM’s virtual career fair module has enabled Bocconi students to connect with international employers, increase employability, and set students up for success.
Paramount to Bocconi has been the all-around support it has received from Symplicity CSM in launching its virtual career fairs. “The support services are beneficial, as they both give insights about the correct usage of the platform and are available for support in case of emergency during the event,” said Alessio. “We engaged the support throughout all the setup and follow up phases of the career events.” With the expertise, knowledge, and patience of helping Bocconi navigate its virtual career fair, students and employers are ensured they can connect with ease.
