This year, Polimoda has virtually invited Human Resource Managers and professionals to e-meet our best talents at our annual Business Links event.
To guarantee students the perfect and safest opportunity to present themselves and their work, Business Links is going digital for the first time in the school's 30-year history and organizing an online event dedicated to matching students with fashion companies. Over 1500 virtual interviews have already been scheduled with representatives from some of the most important Italian and international companies, including Dior, Gucci, Celine, Prada, Richemont, Rick Owens, Fendi, Louis Vuitton, Givenchy, Luxottica and Max Mara Fashion Group.
The Polimoda Career Office team — active throughout the year in the search of professional opportunities for students and alumni — collected the requests in terms of profiles and skills and matched the most suitable final-year or Master student profiles.
"Polimoda never stopped, even though schools are closed. Our contribution right now is more important than ever. It's imperative to give a future to young people, but also to help in the recovery of the fashion sector," says Director Danilo Venturi. "After Covid-19, fashion will face big changes, but in the meantime, society has changed and consumers have changed. The focus will be on quality and we have to rethink retail — now that everyone has become accustomed to buying online — and review processes and communication. Gender and season differences will be increasingly blurred. As always, in times of crisis, fashion will have to guide that type of innovation and that doesn't just mean creating new products, but inventing new ways of creating them. In this process, new resources will be needed, both physical and creative, and we will do our part by connecting supply and demand for work."
Conducting Business links online will certainly be a unique experience for everyone involved, and Polimoda promises to host a safe and successful virtual event for both students and companies.
Good luck to all of our graduates!
