The second edition of the EL PAÍS con tu Futuro event kicks off


The way companies recruit talent has changed – and sitting down with your printed resume in front of a department head and talking about one’s talents no longer cuts it. Increasingly, artificial intelligence and gamification are just some of the new techniques employed for finding the best candidate. This and other keys to succeeding in the labor market as well as ways to figure out one’s own professional vocation will be discussed at the second edition of the career guidance fair EL PAÍS con tu Futuro (EL PAÍS with your future) on December 21 and 22. The event is organized by the newspaper in collaboration with the Santillana Foundation In Madrid to guide young people as they plan a university path.

Some 4,000 high school and Vocational Training (FP) students from all over Spain will gather at Kinépolis Ciudad de la Imagen, in Pozuelo de Alarcón, to hear advice from 78 experts in three chief fields: Humanities And Enterprise, Science and Technology and Artistic Vocations.

Aimed at inspiring them to choose their future career and advise them on the future jobs that best match their profiles, the event encourages students to participate in one or more of the 20 workshops focused on boosting their communication, leadership, teamwork and creative thinking skills. What’s more, students will also be able to schedule face-to-face meetings with any of the speakers in order learn first-hand about their careers and their day-to-day work.

Speakers include Google Spain’s Director of Communications, Anaïs Pérez; science journalist America Valenzuela; film director Javier Fesser; the editor of Verne, Lucía González; the director of Estudio Corazza, Juan Carlos Corazza; and brands expert Andy Stalman.

Students interested in attending can get their free tickets at:

The main sponsors of this event are Banco Santander and Telefónica. Other sponsors include Alfonso X El Sabio University, Lidl, SunMedia, the European University, the TAI school, Bayer, Ford, Madrid regional authority, the State Foundation for Training in Employment, and the World Youth Federation. Partners are the IE University and Ray Human Capital.
