Talent Lab is a joint initiative of Diario Sur and the business school located in Malaga TechPark, ESIC, in collaboration with the consulting firm Standby, to encourage young talent from Malaga to stay in our province.
Talent Lab has successfully completed its training stage with the young talents of our city. During the 5th, 6th and 7th of May, the selected participants have been training with professors of the business school located in Malaga TechPark, ESIC, a unique opportunity in which they have been able to gain momentum at the labor level. The joint initiative of Diario Sur and ESIC, in collaboration with the consulting firm Standby, to encourage young talent from Malaga to stay in our province, with the help of leading companies such as Sinerba, EMT, Metro Malaga, Trops and Opplus, an entity installed in Malaga TechPark, has been based on an intense training program for the 25 chosen, among 200 participants, to receive the skills and abilities demanded by major companies.
In this initiative, not only the CEOs of the companies Sinerba, EMT, Metro Málaga, Opplus and Trops have participated, but also the human resources managers of these companies, who have been during the three days evaluating and selecting those who, finally, will get a job with these companies.
To live this three-day experience, the almost 200 people registered in this first edition had to pass an initial screening according to their academic record and level of English, after which 50 people were left, from which the 25 definitive candidates were finally chosen. These students come from diverse fields, ranging from technical careers such as engineering to professionals in the field of marketing and communication.
During the three days they acquired competencies, skills and knowledge of various subjects. This phase of the Talent Lab has been ‘full of values, emotion and networking’, as said Ignacio de la Vega, Director of the ESIC Malaga Campus and promoter of this initiative, with Diario Sur.
Three days of intense training activity where students participated in an opportunity for employability with the best companies in the province and in a different learning environment, very practical and fully applied to what companies currently demand.
Also, there was a lot of networking between companies and participants, so that they learned to polish their personal cover letter and give the best version of themselves, because “there is no second chance to make a good impression,” as explained Mar Cardenas, ESIC teacher.
