Meet the IESE CDC Team!

Have you ever wondered who are the people helping IESE students to achieve their career aspirations? Our Career Development Center (CDC) has a team of 27 members, who are responsible for Employer Engagement & Sectorial/Regional Advice, Career Management & Counselling and Operations & Events. Many of them are IESE graduates themselves, and one of them has even worked at IESE for 13 years! (Guess who?) Their mission: to partner with companies helping them to find the best talent for their organizations by hiring IESE talent and to equip students with the right tools, resources and mindset to help them develop their career. In this post, get to know some of our CDC team members on a more personal level as they share some of their favourite memories, must-do activities in Barcelona and some general advice on how to make the most of your time at IESE!
