The head of the Instituto de Empresa career center talks about the European job market and how the Spanish school helps students in the job search
Guillaume Delacour has been the director of the Career Management Center at Instituto de Empresa (IE Business School) for more than three years. The Madrid-based school also has programs in Shanghai and Mexico. More than 300 full-time MBA students at IE have access to career assistance from representatives in New York, Latin America, India, and China who know the local markets and help students and alumni get jobs in those countries.
In the first six months of the 13-month MBA program, students focus on finding a career path and learning how to market themselves. In the second part of the year, from June to December, students search for jobs and contact companies.
In 2006, the graduating class earned average starting salaries above $92,000 and signing bonuses topping $15,700. Also, 96% of graduates had jobs three months after graduation. Delacour spoke to BusinessWeek.com reporter Janie Ho and offered tips for those on the global job hunt.
