December 18 and 19 saw the fifth edition of the event EL PAÍS con tu Futuro, a careers-guidance fair focused on the world of work and professional development co-organized by EL PAÍS and the Santillana Foundation.

The two-day event, which took place at the Kinépolis Ciudad de la Imagen, brought together around 3,000 students and featured over 80 talks and a large exhibition area. The young attendees also availed of face-to-face meetings with the speakers. The themes of this fifth edition included quantum computing, Artificial Intelligence, smart cities, cybersecurity, Robotics, the cloud, epigenetics, Business Intelligence, cyber law, sustainability and climate change, videogames, illustration, 3D printing, social networks, and much more, with something for everyone and every possible interest.
The experts encouraged the young students to draw on their determination and passion in a labor market that is undergoing transformation and where new job opportunities are constantly emerging.
The speakers included: Álvaro Jara, head of Airbus ProtoSpace Spain, Technologies and Emerging Concepts; Jaime Garrastazu, co-founder of Pompeii; Arancha Martínez, Founder and CEO of It Will Be; and Amouda Goueli, co-founder and CEO of Destinia. They were just some of the 80 experts who participated in the event, which since its first addition has drawn more than 16,000 attendees and nearly 400 speakers.
The event was sponsored by Telefónica, Santander and Google, as well as Airbus, Bayer, the University College of Financial Studies and the University of Castilla-La Mancha.
