IABC helping job seekers

Sylvie Bussers, one of our scholarship winners, reflects on her Eurocomm 2009 experience…

I truly enjoyed this year’s EuroComm Conference.  I lost my job recently, and what we are told during the outplacement programme is how important networking is.  This was my objective when I applied for a scholarship.  I can now say that my objective was met!

I was amazed at how supportive this network can be, with people making spontaneous offers to help me.  I also learnt a great deal from inspiring speakers.  What I took away was the shift in the skills that will be required from communicators in the future.  This realisation couldn’t come at at a better moment for me.  I certainly went home with lots of new contacts, new ideas and food for thought!

Thanks again for awarding me for this scholarship!
