Carrefour at the first edition of the Consumer Goods Summer Camp

The meeting, organised by AECOC* as part of its Employability Project, will bring together 15 leading companies and 100 university students from around the country.

Madrid, Spain, 2016-Jul-16 — /EPR Retail News/ — Carrefour is present at the first edition of the Consumer Goods Summer Camp, on 12 July in Madrid. It is a day that aspires to put 100 university students and recent graduates in contact with the leading consumer goods companies in the country.  The young people were selected from among 34 different universities throughout Spain and have brilliant profiles, whether for their academic career or their personal abilities.

The Consumer Goods Summer Camp is an employability event designed to accelerate its participants’ professional opportunities and aims to be the reference meeting point between the talent of young Spaniards and the principal economic and job-generating players of the sector.  The young people selected to participate are last year or masters university students or recent graduates aged under 30 years from around Spain.

The young people participating in the Summer Camp will work together with directors and top Human Resources managers of leading companies, amongst whom will be Lorena Sánchez Calzas, Director of Selection, Development and Head Offices of Carrefour Shopping Centres , giving fresh impetus to a challenge which the students must approach in a multidisciplinary work team and offer proposals which will be shared with all the participating companies.

The Consumer Goods Summer Camp will bring closer together the academic and corporate sectors, helping the young people to improve their social skills and strengthening those which are particularly useful in the first years of a professional career.

Carrefour supports this initiative in its bid to combat youth unemployment, which last year reached 46.2% among under 25- year-olds, according to data of the National Institute of Statistics.

The first edition of the Summer Camp will be held at the School of Industrial Organisation in Madrid, and will take place at annual intervals at no fixed venue.  The latest news can be followed on#trabajoengranconsumo.
