IEOut and Allies. Amazon Recruiting and Networking

Written on December 20, 2018 by Campus Life in Professional, Social

The IE Out and Allies Club was very pleased to sponsor an Amazon Networking and Recruiting Event with David Rodriguez. David is a Senior Program Manager in Amazon’s Global Talent Management department and sits on the board of Glamazon, Amazon’s LGBT+ Affinity Group, in Madrid. David also has experience as a Process and Implementation Manager for TNT Express.
David spoke extensively about Amazon’s hiring process and the skills and values Amazon is seeking from potential employees. He took us step by step through Amazon’s application and interview process and gave students advice on how to best tackle each stage. David shared some of his own experience joining Amazon to illustrate the process even further.
Additionally, David spoke to us about the culture at Amazon and what it is like to work for the company. Specifically, David spoke about how Amazon is constantly reinventing himself and every day is “Day 1.” While David knows what his role will be for the next month or two, the company is constantly changing and thus people need to change with it. Students left the meeting with a better understanding of Amazon’s recruitment process and what their work life would look like if they worked at Amazon.


IE Spain Club Recap

Written on December 17, 2018 by Campus Life in Social

IE Spain Club was founded in April 2018 by two IMBA students, Javi Concejo and Carola Gironés. The club has participated in many school activities throughout the year. The first one was the Global Village, where we set up a stand with typical and delicious Spanish food from Extremadura. The government of Extremadura kindly sponsored the event and made all the food available to IE Students. In the Global Village, two IMBA students performed a traditional Spanish fencing exhibition as part of the show of the Global Village.

In September, the club organized a welcome dinner for the IMBA students of September Intake. That was a great opportunity for the IMBA students from January to meet the new students from September and give them advice on the year ahead. The Spanish network in IE strengthens in every event like this.

In October the club organized a Capea, the highlight of the year. This event was open to all IE School and students from MIM, IMBA, Masters, and Bachelors attended the event. We took a bus from the school that brought us to the countryside of Madrid, where we had the chance to run with Calves, play games, eat lunch and enjoy an open bar all day.

Later in October the club organized the Halloween Party in Moondance Club. Students from all programs attended and we had the best time with our costumes. The club prepared a surprise show with 2 IMBA students singing on stage, and a Photo Booth with 2Photographers.

The IE Spain Club started its first year with a variety of activities and is looking forward to coming even stronger next year with more activities for all students at IE

During the week leading up to World Down syndrome day (March 21st), the IE Rugby team will be having several bake sales and other fundraising actions to raise money for the Talita Foundation that works here in Madrid to integrate children with learning disabilities into the educational system.

We hope to rally many willing chefs and salespeople to make this operation as successful as can be. Please get in touch with the IE Rugby coordinators if you are interested in being involved!

Remember, awesomeness is stored in the 21st Chromosome.

IE Men’s Rugby did Mo’vember

Written on December 14, 2018 by Campus Life in Social, Sports

To open a series of events organized by the IE Rugby team in tandem with the Charity club and the Student Leadership Team to raise profits and awareness towards the Movember Foundation, IE hosted an exhibition match facing off with London Business School. The match was only the catalyst for a wonderful weekend filled with social gatherings, networking events and school spirit.
For those who are unaware, the Movember foundation strives to increase support and reduce stigma surrounding men’s mental health issues, as well as increase awareness for male-specific illnesses (namely testicular and prostate cancers). The IE rugby team takes men’s health very seriously, and we greatly appreciate all the collective efforts made both on and off campus to raise awareness for this great cause.
The weekend of festivities saw the two teams come together following the match and proceed in a traditional “Tercer Tiempo” where songs were sang and friends were made. The IE rugby team then hosted a Movember event at Boom Room where all the proceeds went directly to the Movember Foundation. In total all our efforts raised over 2000 euros for the foundation.
I would like to take a moment to thank all the Mo Bros and Mo Sistas for their donations! Additionally, I would like to thank the various coordinators and the LBS Rugby team for making this weekend such a success.


IE Yoga Club

Written on December 12, 2018 by Campus Life in Social, Sports

With the support of IE Campus Life, the IE Yoga Club had the opportunity to organize a promotional event on the 28th of November at IE. The class was offered complimentary for the students and Jaime Arnaiz Rebollo from JAR filmed the class in order to create a promotional video for the club. There was a great turnout by students and recording the class provides future promotional material for the club.

The collaboration of the students, the support of the certified yoga teacher and the help of Campus Life made this all possible. We’re still waiting for the final video and will be sure to post it on all social media channels as well as share it with Campus Life when it is completed.

After attending class, Devin kindly proposed to teach for the Yoga Club starting January. He was willing to organize a last-minute class (9 students attended!). He was able to meet the regular students who normally take class (more of a Hatha-based flow) and introduce a different teaching style – Ashtanga. Feedback from class was very positive: students appreciated having diversity in the styles of yoga offered by the club. We will continue to introduce different yoga styles and encourage new teachers to join the club starting January onwards. 

Starting January, the IE Yoga Club will come out with a new face, having three main objectives in mind:

– Diversify our offer by offering every week an Ashtanga Yoga class, a Vinyasa Yoga class and a Hatha Yoga class.
– Plan regular classes every week. Student will be able to rely on the club and have a regular practice.
– Organize other events related to yoga (as meditation or nutrition) by finding sponsors in Madrid.

In addition, we will look to develop and nurture existing relationships with yoga studios here in Madrid and welcome collaborations as well as guest teachers for different classes. We want to encourage students to learn more about yoga and how it can be of use during stressful situations (exam week, group conflict, deadlines, etc.) and everyday life. We aim to make yoga more available and break down existing stereotypes/misconceptions about what yoga is and how the practice can improve students’ lives.
