The Johan Cruyff Institute, as an academic partner of iWorkinSport 2019, offers students and alumni the opportunity to arrange job interviews with international companies and sports organizations
On May 24th, the SwissTech Convention Center in Lausanne will host the third edition of iWorkinSport Job Fair, the first international hiring fair focused on the sports industry to which international sports companies and organizations go in search of new talent. The Johan Cruyff Institute will again be an academic partner of the event and is offering, exclusively to students and alumni, the possibility to attend the fair and have a pre-arranged job interview with attending companies.
At last year’s edition, over 300 students and alumni of some of the world’s leading postgraduate courses in sport management, including those from the Johan Cruyff Institute, travelled to Lausanne to meet recruiters from a wide selection of the most renowned sports organizations.
The line-up of recruiters was made up of world-class organizations: adidas, CAA Eleven, City Football Group/Manchester City FC, FIBA, FIFA, Freeride World Tour, Genius Sports, IMG, Infront, the International Olympic Committee (IOC), mycujoo, Nielsen Sports, Penceo Sport, Soccerex, TEAM Marketing and UEFA all came to look for talent at the event. We expect these and many more to be at this year’s edition.
Prior to the event, the recruiting companies will announce the professional profiles they are interested in, so that candidates can submit their CVs through the iWorkinSport website. Those selected will then be invited to a 20-minute job interview with the company, without any intermediaries.
The Job Fair consists of two main activities running in parallel: the Exhibition, where the interviews, meetings and networking opportunities take place; and the Conference, where attendees can attend extremely interesting and useful panel discussions and company presentations. This year’s panel discussions are “Industry Trends: what sports organizations are looking for”, “Get a Job! – Find your opportunity; make your CV stand out; what (not) to do at a job interview; and more…” and “The Value of Education in the Sports Industry”.
iWorkinSport is the perfect scenario for companies and HR professionals to exchange knowledge and explain what it means to work at their companies before an interested and qualified audience. As a novelty in this second edition, the recruiters will also participate in a special networking session and a dinner with the representatives of the academic partners.
Students and alumni of the Johan Cruyff Institute who are interested in attending the fair must register through the event’s website. The first 40 to do so will be able to attend for free and the rest will get a 50% discount.
