Thanks to their outstanding academic performance, nine IML students were selected by LBS faculty members for the 2014 Profil High Potential Day. For the seventh year in a row, the Austrian news magazine Profil has staged this exclusive career event in Vienna’s city hall to match high potentials with 70 of Austria’s top employers.

Based on their specific qualifications and interests, students decided which companies they wished to talk to at the Profil High Potential Day. According to one IML student, “These brief discussions provided some insight into their corporate culture, language, the types of candidates they seek, and other useful information. It’s far more efficient to learn quickly which companies you think you can contribute value to and which you feel you don’t fit well with.” LBS students, for example, had appointments with major industry players such as Nestlé, Siemens, E&Y, IBM, REWE International, and A1.

LBS’s international students emphasized the significance of such events to get more familiar with the Austrian job market. Most employers required at least a good command of German but at the same time also praised the strong cross-cultural mind-set of our business school.

What is more, the Profil High Potential Day was a unique opportunity to meet students from other universities and “see how they behave, talk and introduce themselves, and benchmark them in other aspects.” This IML student thus sums up that from a wide range of Vienna-based career fairs, “Profil High Potential Day is probably the most desired event for students and companies. It gathers only the best, the best companies and the best students, and it offers a unique chance to both parties to interact for a whole day.”

Creating employment opportunities both locally and internationally is the core mission of LBS. Career events are a corner stone of our continuous work to accomplish this mission.
