On two dates next week, VF Corporation gives students the option to participate in 5 webinars with business professionals from various departments of their different brands. Enabling a sneak-peek in what its like to work at VF.
„Students have the great opportunity to actually get to know different functions in very short and straight to the point webinars of half an hour each. If they are looking for some guidance on what field to focus on it is a great “orientation” opportunity as they can do one webinars or all of them! If they are already focusing on one function/career (ie. sales or digital) they can interact with a VF business leader!“Gabriele Silva, Senior EMEA Talent Acquisation Manager, VF
If the sports and lifestyle industry does interest you, this is a great chance to find out more about the work behind the scenes of various roles in an international successful company. VF Corporation is a global leader in branded lifestyle apparel, footwear and accessories (to give you some facts: with 50,000 associates and $11.2 billion in revenue) and the company behind iconic lifestyle & outdoor brands, like The North Face, Timberland, Vans, Napapijri, Eastpak and many more.
While VF is highly diversified across brands, products, distribution channels and geographies, their One VF culture and approach to doing business provides a unique and powerful competitive advantage.
For a student or recent graduate this means they can start a career in a company that can allow them to move across different brands, functions and countries; this really enhances their learning opportunities! Finally, and most importantly, we are teams of inclusive and friendly people; who are ambitious and eager to keep learning.Gabriele Silva, Senior EMEA Talent Acquisation Manager, VF
