A new partnership has been created with the non-profit association, Giovani nel Mondo, and a major Italian airline, Alitalia, as protagonists. A partnership benefitting both parties but, more importantly, the participants of the International Careers Festival’s 2nd edition.
An airline giant, one of the most efficient in Europe with a fleet of 122 airplanes, will be making a fundamental contribution to the Festival which takes place from March 11 to 14, 2017. During the summer season Alitalia flies to 97 destinations, of which 27 in Italy and 70 in the rest of the world, with 4.400 flights weekly. Quality service, a special focus on passengers, high levels of professionalism, and training and competence of the crew, maintenance technicians and the entire personnel have always been a distinctive feature of Alitalia. On board of Alitalia’s flights, Italian comfort and elegance have always been recognized: menus created according to regional recipes, wines from the most distinguished Italian wineries and, on intercontinental flights, tablecloths and duvets signed by Frette and make-up bags with products signed by Salvatore Ferragamo. This and more is what this partnership is offering to the participants of the Festival, the best deals created especially for them to fly to the capital of Italy, Rome, in order to take part in this one-of-a-kind annual event.
Alitalia will also be a protagonist of the Rome Business Game thanks to the real case-study it will be presenting, which will then be developed during the project. In fact, one of the days of the Business Game will be called the “Alitalia Challenge”. On that day, company managers will submit a business case-study which competitors, divided into Junior and Senior teams, will have to solve with the help of professional resources available. A unique set of opportunities will be awarded for the winning team: access to direct channels of communication to those responsible for business and recruitment, an interview opportunity, and a chance to present your resume for future opportunities.
