"The Highly Sought-After Talent for the Future"

Speaker: Ms. Noriko Takagi
co-owner and managing partner of Steinbach & Partner. She has many years of experience in both Europe and Asia, primarily in human resources management consulting. ⇒ CV Noriko Takagi

The sought-after talent for the future will not only be judged by ‘good grades’ or ‘intelligence’, but more and more by different types of abilities and networking skills. From the skills required of the old elite, what is required now?! Not only as a member of society, but also in order to become a universal human being paving the way for a happy future, don’t you want to ask for specific advice about what is a good way of spending your everyday life from now on?

Following the lecture, there will be held

a ’café talk’ in the café corner

(Number of participants limited/first come, first served basis)
Let’s talk with Ms. Takagi about how to do job-hunting overseas, how to success in job-interviews, methods of preparing and hints about how to overcome the difficulties of recruiting
