First job in times of crisis: An EDHEC Alumni and CentraleSupélec Alumni Study

By EDHEC NewGen Talent Centre

Written on 27 April 2021.

As the job market slows down with the COVID-19 crisis:

What impact will it have on students currently entering the workforce?

What advice can we share for young graduates currently looking for a job?

The EDHEC NewGen Talent Centre and EDHEC Alumni teamed up with top engineering school CentraleSupélec Alumni to explore the question.

The two schools surveyed 445 alumni from the last 30 years, during which the world experienced the 1993 recession, the dot-com bubble in 2001, and the global financial crisis of 2008.

They were asked about the impact of timing on their careers and what advice they would offer graduates entering the job market today.
