One-to-one meetings, training and interviews with recruiters and companies, Virtual Career Fair

Joining the work market, today more than ever, is difficult and not always granted. 

The practical methodology and approach that IED renews year after year, coping with the frantic pace of innovation and the unexpected societal changes, are important characteristics to enter the market.

The IED Italia Career Service, with a team of 15 people distributed on the territory, takes care of every single student passing through our classrooms. It does so through a process of accompaniment, training and promotion that rewards the student, the company and the school itself.

This virtuous circle starts from IED classes, involves the new graduates of the Undergraduate and Master courses, fresh minds ready for the job market; it touches the alumni, the large community of former students – now professionals, and flows naturally into the business world.

The Career Service, point of connection between the school and the business world, has been able to build, over the years, solid and lasting partnerships with the companies.

Despite the difficult season experienced this year, the data confirm that six months after graduation, 83% of the students of the Undergraduate IED Italia courses have already entered the work market.


Every year, the Career Service Office supports the students of the Undergraduate and Master courses by preparing and supporting them in entering the job market.  It proposes dedicated activities, according to the timing of each type of course, with an approach that respects the different expectations of the students who attend them.

Throughout a personalized path, consisting of individual meetings, each student is tutored by a staff member.

The meetings aim to highlight the acquired skills and personal attitudes of each student, helping to create the awareness necessary to approach the job market and to build a competitive curriculum vitae and portfolio.

During the year, training sessions are organized with recruitment professionals who teach the students how to land a job interview and they give insights about the present and future scenarios of the creative professions.

The program culminates with the Virtual Career Fair, an event during which the students have the opportunity to introduce themselves to the many companies involved and to participate in the selection interviews.


The Career Service Office provides every year – to the Undergraduate and Master courses students – 5 main events aimed at facilitating the entrance in the work market:

1 – Career Talk with Monster, a recruitment giant, whose goal is to make talent available to companies that know how to make the most of it: a day to understand how to deal with interviews and how to give the best of yourself.

2 – The one-to-one meetings with the staff, in which a series of fundamental issues for the future of our students are addressed: strengths, inclinations and concrete possibilities.

3 – Career Talk with Linkedin, the world’s largest network of professionals, with over 645 million users in more than 200 countries and geographical areas.

4 – May is dedicated to the Job Future Days, training days where big brands meet the students with round tables and presentations on key themes . During these events, students get insights about their work and the future of the creative professions. 

5 – Eventually, the Virtual Career Fair is scheduled between September and October. The event is organized within the IED Alumni Network platform and in collaboration with Visiotalent, designed to offer a valuable opportunity to our graduates. The Fair allows graduates to present themselves to over 100 participating realities through a video Interview. This tool, at the heart of the Career Fair, allows recruiters to immediately assess the candidate’s soft skills and to be more flexible during the entire selection process.
