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

The Career Office, made up of a highly specialized team distributed in the different locations, takes care of each of our students through a process of guidance, training, listening and career development. This transversal approach guarantees benefits for both the student and the company, thus rewarding the school's own strategy.

This virtuous circle starts at IED, involves the new graduates of the Undergraduate and Postgraduate courses and the Alumni, the large community of our former students - now professionals, and flows into the world of enterprises.

As a bridge between education and career, the expertise of the Career Department is able to support graduating students, understand their attitudes and predispositions in order to submit and present them with professional opportunities that best match their technical and behavioral skills, without forgetting their aspirations.

Over the years, the Career Team has built and maintained strategic collaborations and solid, long-lasting relationships with leading companies in different sectors, turning them into true partnerships.

After graduating, several employment opportunities are offered: from extracurricular internships to other forms of contracts.

32% of our students skip the internship phase and go straight to a job offer.

Moreover, six months after graduation, 90% of students of three-year courses and Master's Programs offered in Italy have already found a job opportunity.

Student Services

Every year, the Career Office assists students of Undergraduate and Master's courses to prepare and support them as they start looking for a job.

The Career Department offers customized training activities, according to the timing of each type of course, with an approach that respects the different expectations of students.

Through a customized process, made up of individual meetings, each student is guided by a member of the staff.

The meetings aim to bring out the learned skills and personal attitudes of each student, contributing in raising their awareness in order to develop the right professional approach and create a competitive curriculum vitae with a portfolio coherent with their professional ambitions.  

Throughout the year, training and discussion sessions are organized with Recruitment professionals who teach the students how to consciously approach a selection process interview and talk about the present and future scenario of the creative professions.

The program concludes with the Career Fair, a recruiting event during which students and graduates have the opportunity to present themselves to the numerous companies involved and take part in selection interviews.

All IED students of Undergraduate courses, Master's Programs and Master of Arts, throughout the 11 locations, have access to a customized training pathway, which is guided by experts in specific areas and has the goal of facilitating their entry into the job market.  

Training activities 

  • One-to-one meetings with staff, during which we discuss a series of topics that are crucial for the future of our students: strengths, inclinations, support in the drafting of their professional profile (CV, Cover Letter, Resumé) and presentation of concrete opportunities. 

  • Training events with partners, on topics such as advanced personal branding strategies, digital reputation, best practices to identify job opportunities online and offline, how to deal effectively with interviews and how to write an ATS-friendly CV (Application Tracking System). 

Empowerment and Networking events with professional partner 

Top brands meet and engage with students: panel discussions and presentations on key topics of their work and the future of the creative professions. In this phase, students can gather information about companies, increase placement opportunities, and build and expand their professional network. 

Recruiting events and Career Fair 

Talent Acquisition events during which graduates have the opportunity to present themselves to the several companies involved and actively take part in selection interviews. In these events, graduates have the opportunity to present themselves to recruiters, share their CVs and make useful connections for internship and job opportunities. 


We help businesses in different industries to identify the best profiles from among our students. The idea is to maximize the time needed for assessment through our special talent acquisition services, which are available for both curricular and extracurricular work placements.

Another strength of the Career Department is the possibility of building, in collaboration with the client, a customized, flexible and successful selection process.

The presence of a highly qualified team makes it possible to catch and understand the client's needs, presenting a customized selection of profiles in line with the shared job description. 

Through the implementation of an ATS (Applicant Tracking System) software, we are able to build an increasingly agile and digitized selection process. The ATS, in fact, streamlines the application screening process, reduces the cost and time of the recruiting process, automates the management of CVs and ensures the selection of the most qualified talent in line with the opportunity.

Once the ideal candidate has been identified, we support companies in managing the bureaucratic procedures of the entire placement activation process.

With our schools in Milan, Rome, Madrid, Barcelona, Turin, Florence, Bilbao, Cagliari, Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, Accademia Galli in Como, we act as a privileged observatory on the market with almost 500 courses in our catalogue, around 3000 professional teachers and over 10,000 national and international students. 

Thanks to this strategic position, we can intercept and respond to the needs of companies and market trends through various Employer Branding and Talent Acquisition initiatives.
