Based on the event report from Karen Silverton
Talent Connection Events are a great way to connect Cisco Partners with incredibly enthusiastic young job seekers, students or graduates from Cisco Networking Academies.
For Cisco Partners looking for IT Talents it is also a great possibility to discuss hires made the previous year and the positive results received. It is an opportunity to start building a talent pipeline. We are happy to hear about the appreciation to Cisco and Cisco Networking Academy for taking action in such a format.
Arie Van Duijn, Cisco Networking Academy Program Manager, is building the bridge to educators and their students from Networking Academies. Before the event the candidates were given the opportunity to prove their technical ability by doing a packet tracer on-line exam, using the same system used to identify NetRiders winners. The winner received training vouchers from Fast Lane, our Learning Partner.
The local partners that came to the event were:
BT, Proximus, Dimension Data, Fast Lane, Data Flow, Orange, Techdata, Devoteam, Cofely Quentris, NRB Demelenne, Spot IT and Cameo Global.
Some feedback from our partners:
- Dataflow : “We were really positive about the event, I’m sure we will hire some of the people that were present that day”
- BT : “I had great feedback around the organization from my colleagues! We are sill reviewing some CV’s and have identified 2 people who are invited for interviews”
- Cofely Quentris : “We have had good contacts with a few people who shall be further screened”
Our thanks for making this possible goes to: Ken Vanthielen, Arie Van Duijn, Karen Silverton
