Group managers and recently-hired graduates share their experience with students and recent graduates at select universities in Milan, Turin, Rome and Naples. Students are invited to tour Group companies.

 Tomorrow the Telecom Italia University Tour 2005 visits the Politecnico di Milano as part of its circuit of select universities across Italy.

The tour serves two purposes: to let young people know what it’s like to work for a major corporation and inform them about the company’s values and how a large corporation works, while at the same time offering the Telecom Italia Group a chance to get close to young people and find out what’s important to them.

Led by Enrico Bertolino, the tour consists of a presentation of the Telecom Italia Group by human resources development manager Massimo Roascio, and contributions from Telecom Italia employees (top managers and recently-hired graduates) who are only too happy to answer questions and queries.

As part of last year’s traineeship programme for placement and dissertation students – a recruitment method that is highly-esteemed and widely-used by the Group – 365 trainees, average age 26.3 years, had an opportunity to get hands-on experience of the Group’s main divisions (fixed-line and mobile telephony, research, and internet & media). Last year’s intake of graduates consisted of 42.5% Economics and 40.9% Engineering students.

The Politecnico di Milano event (contact comunicazione@polimi.it to find out more about the event, which starts at 5.45 p.m.) sees the participation of Stefano Pileri, Telecom Italia’s Network manager. Last week, students and recent graduates at the Bocconi University met Antonio Campo dall’Orto, CEO of MTV Italia and Head of Programming and Content at La7.

After the summer break, the Telecom Italia University Tour continues at the Turin Politecnico and University, the La Sapienza University in Rome, and the Federico II University of Naples.

At the end of each meeting, students can sign up for a visit to Telecom Italia Group company units.
