Yesterday, IWC had the great pleasure of hosting its brand new “lounge” booth, designed by Brand Architect Christoph Grainger-Herr, at Switzerland’s famed St.Gallen University. Students interested in working for IWC were welcomed under a sign which read: “Welcome to the high-flying squadron”
IWC CEO Georges Kern presented IWC’s brand enrichment strategy to interested students, based on our recent Portofino and Top Gun business cases. More than sixty students from the bachelor and master’s programs attended the presentation, flooding the allotted classroom.
Later that afternoon, Georges Kern (CEO), Nina Jägle (Product Manager), Marion Willam (PR Manager), Christian Liebler (Business Controlling) and the HR team of IWC (Bjoern Hackert, Franck Babin, Mathias Fricker) answered students’ questions, and presented the different possibilities for launching a career at IWC (Trainee program, direct application, apprenticeship)- discussing our selective recruiting process.
