Career Symposium
The importance of Adaptability!

The event is dedicated to challenging issues in the fields of career development, the world of employment, and interactions between higher education and society.

This year´s topic will be: “The importance of adaptability!“.
This year, the event is dedicated to the number one soft skill employers are searching for: Adaptability!

What can we learn from previous research in neuroscience and psychology? Can adaptability be learned? How important is adaptability for working life and is it already part of the selection process? What connections can be made to resilience, problem solving or growth mindset? How do our own experiences shape our ability to adapt?
 

Goal

The Constructor Career Symposium is organized by the Career Services Center (Student Career Support) at Constructor University, and aims to foster a constructive discussion as well as networking opportunities between alumni from all over the world, current students, professors, employers, and additional experts.
 

Format

A keynote speaker as well as a selected panel of professors and alumni are invited to contribute and to interact with a moderator in a discussion on the basis of their diverse backgrounds and expertise.

The reflection on the Symposium topic between the speakers is followed by an open debate with the audience, where further questions will be addressed and answered.

The event ends with a socializing get-together, giving all participants the opportunity to continue exchanging ideas as well as to expand their professional networks.
