1 April 2016
Last Friday, April 1st, we were invited to introduce our company on the BEST European career fair that gathers more than 200 specifically selected students and recent graduates coming from technological universities and schools throughout Europe.
BEST strives to help European students of technology to become more internationally minded, by reaching a better understanding of European cultures and developing capacities to work on an international basis. Therefore they create opportunities for the students to meet and learn from one another through our academic and non-academic events and educational symposia. "Learning makes the master", but the final goal is a good working place, therefore they offer services like an international career centre to broaden the horizons for the choice on the job market.
The main priority is to offer high quality services for students all over Europe. Thus, BEST manages to bring all the partners in the "student - company - university" triangle closer.
This is where Whirlpool comes in. As Diamond partner for the BEST Career day in Brussels at the 1st of April, we held a company presentation for over 200 enthusiastic (soon to be) graduates.
During an interesting and interactive session with all the attendees Pieter Brauwers presented the Whirlpool Company, our brands, social responsibility, leadership model, and finally what everyone was waiting for: The Fast Track Management Program.
Benjamin Boon, current Fast Tracker, presented and inspired the audience with his personal experiences within the program. You could clearly feel the passion and eagerness to become part of the Whirlpool family, which was great to see.
Through the rest of the day we also had the opportunity to interview some high potential students for a possible spot in the program or in one of our internships, as well as a possibility for the students to get to know more about the company. On top of that, a video interview was conducted about our company that will be used in further communication from BEST.
It was an inspiring day and it was great to see the passion, talent, and interest for the Whirlpool Company.
