May the bots be with you!


Free session for experienced managers & executives in Europe who are currently looking for a job (or getting ready for it): “May the bots be with you!”.

A senior candidate who wants to be successful in their job search has to embrace technology and all that comes with it. But it’s easy to get lost, especially for those who haven’t looked for a job in a while.

During this interactive meeting, we’ll explain how to identify, understand and correctly maneuver elements of technology in every stage of the job search process, incl.:

AI interviews

Unternehmen rekrutieren seit Anfang der Pandemie zwischen 50% und 70% weniger über LinkedIn. Die Arbeitslosenrate steigt weiter an. Die Aussichten sind entsprechend trübe…

Topic: Career Management – an exploration of how Covid-19 has impacted MBA job search
Speaker: Sandra Bichl
Format: keynote, reserved for AMBA members

About & details: Covid-19 has disrupted the job market and raises more questions than it gives answers. For example: has the supply and demand for candidates changed? Which job markets are globally affected the most? What do these changes mean for qualified, educated candidates? How has the job search process in 2021 changed, when compared with 2018 or 2015? (Has it changed at all?) Career Angels has been meticulously tracking so-called ‘job hunting KPIs’ and how they have changed over recent years – showing how drastically the job market has evolved for experienced managers and executives in 2020. And it’s very likely to stay that way. Join the webinar to get the answers for all of this questions (and even more) and find out how the job market has changed!
