On Wednesday November 21, Admiral Dynamics was invited at a CVO TSM college on the Thomas More De Nayer campus to present our company and to help this group of IT graduate students by giving them some hands-on tips and tricks for LinkedIn. We were warmly welcomed by student coach Heidi Wulff and her class of 15 motivated IT students.
First, Carole Vincke kicked off the afternoon by presenting ourselves and giving some detailed information about our company, its activity, and our tooling such as Dynamics CRM. As this group is approaching the final stage of their curriculum, it might be an opportunity to do an internship at Admiral Dynamics. The young students were passionately listening to our presentation as they had little knowledge of our day-to-day operations.
Afterwards we were asked to give some guidelines in order to attain a professional LinkedIn profile. We helped each student individually by giving advise on how they should complete their personal profile page.
At the end of our visit, we did a short role play which allowed our experienced HR manager to interview an IT student pretending to be a real candidate. Given the fact the students have little experience in this field, we are sure they made a step forward.
As expected, this turned out to be an educational, interactive and fun afternoon for both the company as the students.
