“I tried to contact all the recruiters that are online via chat. I sent my CV and a paragraph about my professional experience, my studies and social life.
Most of the recruiters replied to me via messages asking about my internship interests. Other recruiters called me on my phone after consulting my cv, and some other recruiters gave me dates for interviews next week. So, generally, the interaction with the recruiters was quite fruitful”, said Islem Bouchouicha, an MSc student in International Business.
“There were many companies and job/internship offers covering practically all the fields”, said Ines Hdidou, MSc student in Digital Business & Analytics.
Many companies will require MBA and MSc students, as they grapple with one of the critical challenges to come out of the pandemic for businesses: digital transformation.
